Privacy statement

 

This privacy policy is for this website, www.darrenbane.co.uk, created and served by me, Darren Bane. This policy governs the privacy of those who choose to use it.

 

The website

 

The only section of this website which asks for any personal data from visitors is the form contained on the Contact page. The information requested is the name and email address of the site user. This is to enable me to respond to users who make contact using the form. The users' website address and name are used to respond to contact initiated by the user. None of this data is kept and recorded by me.

Many other sites offer services such as a newsletter, which requires subscriptions, or requires people to sign up for email communications or feature a shop, enabling users to create an account, with their own password, and to enter payment details. My website offers no such services, and therefore presents me with no opportunity to collect any such data. While the website exists to promote the sale of my books, links are provided to sites where the titles can be bought from - such as Amazon and Lulu - the use of which is governed by their own terms and conditions, and privacy policies.

​ 

This website is hosted on the Wix.com platform. Wix.com provides me with the online platform to promote my products. While it can be used to sell products and services, as previously stated, I do not do this through my site. I do provide links to other sites. Your data may be stored through Wix.com's storage, databases and the general Wix.com applications. They store your data on secure servers behind a firewall. Wix.com enables me to measure and collect session information, including page response times, length of visits to certain pages, page interaction information and methods used to browse away from the page, for analytical purposes.

This website was created by me, Darren Bane, using information supplied by Wix.com as well as from other sources. I use Wix.com because I am not an expert web designer, and I have no knowledge of 'code' or of the technical workings of websites, cookies, or anything of that nature. This site was created in good faith purely to promote and raise awareness of my personal writing projects, which are available to buy from other websites, not this one. To the best of my knowledge, and given the advice I have had from the Wix.com platform help centre, the information contained within this policy is correct and accurate. This policy was created by Darren Bane on 21 May 2018, to ensure the site complies with GDPR requirements, which come into force on 25 May 2018.​​​​
