Privacy Policy

I, Vinnie Hansen, am a fiction writer, and this is my privacy policy. I will not ask for personal information unless I need it to send requested information or to contact contest winners. I will neither retain this information nor share it without your explicit permission, except to comply with the law or to protect my rights and the rights of others.

Upon your consent, I may collect data for my newsletter mailing list in order to send you marketing updates and other information related to me, my books, or book-related deals. I currently use Mailerlite for my newsletter distribution and the information stored with Mailerlite, not on my personal devices. The data includes only the name (or nickname) you gave when signing up along with the email address you provided.

If you use a website contact form to reach me, your information will not be retained. Your name and email will never be added to any mailing list without your explicit consent. Your data will never be sold or given to third parties.

Mailerlite’s and my personal website’s analytical programs may gather information about your usage of those websites (e.g., page views, button clicks, etc.) This information is processed to provide aggregate data regarding patterns of usage, to help me improve content and share relevant information. This aggregate data may also be used to monitor and protect the security of my websites, and to detect and prevent fraudulent behavior and other illegal activities and to fight spam.

While no online service is 100% secure, I strive to protect information about you against unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction, and take reasonable measures to do so.

There are only two circumstances under which I might share your individual data. As required by law, I may disclose information about you in response to a subpoena, court order, or other official and legally-binding governmental request. To protect rights, property or safety, I may disclose information about you when I believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property, rights, or safety of myself or others. For example, if I have a good faith belief that there is an imminent danger of death or serious physical injury to you or to anyone else, I may disclose information related to the emergency without delay.

You can unsubscribe from my newsletter by scrolling to the bottom of it and clicking on “unsubscribe.”

You may also email me at any time: vinnie@vinniehansen.com  and request that your data be deleted or amended if incorrect.

Thank you for the privilege of allowing me to keep in touch!

I may refine this Privacy Policy from time to time, and at my sole discretion. I encourage subscribers and visitors to my site to check this page for any changes to this Privacy Policy. Your continued use of my site and subscription to my newsletter after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
