Analytics & DNT
If you are a subscribed member of cozymysteries.com via our activecampaign mailing list, you will have opted in to activity tracking for cozymysteries.com. If you are not a current subscriber, your activity on cozymysteries.com will not be tracked. If you are a current subscriber but want to disable tracking, you can do this in two ways. 1/ enable DNT on your browser (please visit http://allaboutdnt.com for more information) or 2/ visit your privacy preferences for this website and opt out of all tracking cookies. Doing this will reduce the funtionality of the site, will enable subscription popups and will unenroll you from the AJG reward program. Tracking web activity for the website cozymysteries.com offers many benefits for our members and customers, but we cannot offer these if DNT is enabled. We will honour DNT.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Who we share your data with
If you decide to join our mailing list/s, we will store your email address on our secure database held with ActiveCampaign. ActiveCampaign do not have access to use or share your data.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue. We currently do not accept commenting.
For users that register on our WordPress website (admin & web masters), we also store the personal information they provide 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.
For users that sign up to our mailing list/s, we will hold your email address securely until either a) the user requests us to delete it, or B) we decide to close the mailing list.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, or are a member or a mailing list, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
