What information do we collect from you?
Jackie Keswick processes two types of information
• personal data you supply to us and
• data we collect about you
Personal data you supply to us: Communication Data
If you communicate with us, we process the information contained in your communication. This information may include your name and contact information, the content of your communication and any metadata our website generates when you use the contact form available on our website. We will process that information to correspond with you and keep records of such correspondence.
If you contact us in the course of a business transaction, we process this data as part of a contract between us and we store this information as required for accounting and tax purposes. Under no circumstances will we share your personal details with a non-related third party.
If you are a customer contacting us with a query or have provided your details during a contest or giveaway, we regard your communication as consent to process this data to reply to you. We will only share your information if it is necessary to complete our conversation – for example, if you have won a paperback copy of a book, we will share your mailing address with the postal service to delivery your book. Once we have concluded our conversation, your information will be deleted from our systems.
Personal data you supply to us: Notification Data
Roughly every 4-8 weeks, Jackie Keswick publishes a newsletter with information about new releases, cover reveals, sales, news and freebie stories. If you have subscribed to receive this newsletter, we will process your data, which consists of your name and email address. This data is held by our newsletter service provider, Mailchimp. There may also be a note showing how a subscriber signed up, for example through a promotional event or via a link in the back of a book.
We will not share this data with anyone and only use it to send you our newsletter. The legal basis for us processing this data is that you have consented to such processing.
We are currently in the process of confirming all existing newsletter subscriptions. To ensure that you still wish to receive this communication, we will ask you to re-subscribe to our newsletter every three years. You may remove your name from the mailing list at any time by selecting the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of the email.
Jackie Keswick publishes blog posts and website updates on a regular basis and website visitors can sign up to receive blog updates either with a wordpress.com account or an email address. Signup information is stored in the WordPress database on the webserver.
The legal basis for holding this information is your consent. You may remove your name from the subscription list at any time. We will never share your information with any unrelated third party. The notification system is automated and your details are only used to send out notifications about new website content.

What counts as personal data?
Personal data is any information that can be used to identify someone, whether through direct or indirect means, including online identifiers such as cookies and location data.
We will ask consent when we collect any personal data.
• Subscribers must tick the consent box in email subscriptions to show they are willing to receive email from us and understand that we will not share this data with any unrelated third party.
• Any signups include consent for cookie usage
• Before users can leave a comment on a post, we ask consent by using a checkbox and disclose that this site stores comments and information relating to the comment such as the date and computer’s IP address. This data is not used in any way by us.
When will we disclose your personal data to others?
We may need to share your personal information with certain selected third parties for the purpose of providing our service to you.
We use an external hosting provider (namesco.co.uk) to host our website, store personal information, and provide our email account.
We use MailChimp for storing our mailing list and sending out email newsletters.
We will also disclose your personal information to third parties to comply with any legal obligation, or to protect our rights or property, or the safety of us, our customers, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
Where do we store your personal data?
The names and email addresses of subscribers to our newsletter are stored on MailChimp’s secure servers.
Blog subscription information, blog comments, and contact form entries are stored in our website’s database on the servers of our hosting provider.
The new General Data Protection Regulation gives you the right to access the personal data we hold about you and the right to have your personal data corrected if there are errors or inaccuracies in it, or your personal data is incomplete.
You have the right to tell us you no longer consent to us processing your personal data.
And you have the right to be forgotten, which means you can request to have all your data deleted from our server or transferred to another company.
You can ask us to provide you with details of any personal data we hold about you, as long as you can offer appropriate evidence of your identity before we respond to your request. You can also ask us to correct the data we hold if you think it contains errors.
Email email@example.com and we will be happy to share with you any information we might hold on you.
We make every effort to ensure your personal data is stored safely. If we become aware of a breach of personal data, we will notify the Supervisory Authority within 72 hours unless the breach is harmless and poses no risk to the individual. If a breach is concluded to be high risk, Jackie Keswick will inform the individual as well.
