Last Updated Jan 2023. Kaitlyn Davis M. ("I", "me", "my", "us", "we", "our") operates KayMarieBooks.com (the "Site"). This page is meant to inform you of my policies regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of Personal Information I receive from users of the Site. The intended use of this information is to improve your experience with the Site. By using this Site, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with my policy. Thank you!
In Real People Terms:
I do not use Google Adsense or Google Analytics. I rely on the Google Sites Statistics inherently built into this site for information such page views and country of origin, among others. (If you live in Europe, you should get a GDPR compliant popup.)
I employ the use of a few third party sites to help track and collect information. I use MailerLite to collect names and email address for my newsletters (I only deliver the specific emails you signed up for, you are free to unsubscribe at any time, and I do not sell or share my subscriber list). I am a member of the Amazon Affiliate program which helps me track click-buy conversion rates for visitors on my site. I sometimes run giveaways through Rafflecopter or pre-order campaigns through Google Forms, both of which collect various forms of relevant information. I link to third party social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, etc. Each of these sites have their own privacy policies when you leave my Site, but there is some additional information outlined in the sections below if you'd like to know more.
Now...the legal jargon:

Third Party Disclosure
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your Personally Identifiable Information unless we provide users with advance notice. This does not include website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or serving our users, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release information when it's release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others' rights, property or safety.
Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third-party products or services on our website. These third-party sites have separate and independent privacy policies.

The security of your PII is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)
When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13 years old, the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, United States' consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children's privacy and safety online.
We do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old.
Fair Information Practices
The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.
In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur: We will notify the users via in-site notification within 7 business days
We also agree to the Individual Redress Principle which requires that individuals have the right to legally pursue enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
CAN SPAM Act
The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.
