How personal information is collected, held and used

The primary reason we collect and use your personal information is to enable the provision of services and to keep you informed (where applicable), and for the development and improvement of our services.

  • All manuscript submissions are confidential and will not be shared with any other parties without the submitter’s (author) approval
  • Information from the shop and newsletter subscription can be used to produce and provide insights, trends, and other relevant information to the website owner in a way that does not identify you

For users that purchase from our website, personal information is stored in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information. Subscription to the newsletter is opt-in and can be cancelled at any time.
