Our Privacy Policy

We'd like to let you know that we collect personal data like your name and email address, and any other optional information you choose to give me for the exclusive use of voluntary communication and sales. It is our intention to protect your privacy as well as we are able. We will not share or sell your information. You are free to opt out of our email list at any time, and links to do so are in the footer of our newsletters.

MAILING LIST

If you choose to receive regular communications from us through our email service, your personal information is held in our 3rd party mail server and list builder, Mailchimp. Mailchimp is GDPR compliant and will not use, make public, or sell or share your information. Please visit Mailchimp's website to read their privacy policy. Again, you opted in on our website, and you may opt out of communications with us at any time.

COLLECTION OF COOKIES

We use cookies on this site, which anonymously tracks visitors to determine what our most useful and popular content is. This helps us create relevant content. The data collected is anonymous and will never be used in any attempt to track a specific visitor (we don't think it could be done and have no wish to try). Analytics tracking is done through this website platform, Squarespace. which is GDPR compliant, and Google Analytics.

LINKS AND THIRD PARTIES

Historical Romance Magazine uses social follow and share buttons and links, and sometime re-posts content made by others in an acceptable manner, giving proper attribution/ authorship. I are not responsible for the adherence to privacy policies that third parties, such as YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and others not limited to those mentioned here may have. You are free to visit each connected site or platform's privacy policy if you are concerned or curious.

MY OFFLINE STORAGE

When a project with a client is initiated, I, Charlotte acting agent of Historical Romance Magazine, will collect, with written consent, only the necessary information needed to conduct business. I will store receipts with your address, phone number, name, and email address, and artwork information indefinitely unless requested not to. Transactions conducted online are processed securely through Squarespace (our site host), and either PayPal or Stripe and your credit card company or bank or credit union. If a sale is made in person, I will shred or burn (such violence!) any written credit card information as soon as the sale goes through. The only time HRM would share information would be in the case of discovering criminal activity of the part of a client or account, and authorities would be notified. 

AFFILIATE MARKETING

At some point in the future, this site may display affiliate links as deemed helpful and appropriate. Currently we do not.

If you have any further questions about how your information is held or used, please feel free to contact us. Thank you!
