Website Privacy Policy and Statement from Elizabeth Ellen Carter

This Privacy Policy explains what information of yours is collected by me when you visit my site, how the information will be used, and how you can control the collection, correction and/or deletion of your information. I will not use or share your information with anyone except as described in this Privacy Policy. The Policy does not apply to information I collect by other means (including offline) or from other sources. The use of information collected through my site is limited to the purposes under this Privacy Policy.

I am committed to providing quality services to you. To this end, I have adopted the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) contained in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (the Privacy Act). The NPPs govern the way in which your Personal Information is collected, used, disclosed, stored, secured and disposed of. A copy of the Australian Privacy Principles may be obtained from the website of The Office of the Australian Information Commissioner at

Your Information

I may collect personal information about you such as your name, email address, or similar, when you register to receive communications such as my newsletter or other items. You will be able to see what information I am collecting because you are the one inputting and submitting it. If you purchase a book directly from me via my website, I or a third-party payment processor will collect your payment information. If you purchase a book by me from a third party site such as Amazon, I don’t receive any personal or payment information about you.

I do not send any promotional emails except for those you personally choose to receive by opting in. However, I may send you service related emails relating to your existing registrations.

If you no longer wish to receive these emails, you may opt out of them by using the unsubscribe link in the emails you receive from me. This is the best and quickest way to stop receiving unwanted emails from me or anyone else for that matter.

If you want to access, change, or delete your information held by me, you should contact me. I will endeavour to provide your information and/or change information as you wish within a reasonable number of business days (9-5 Monday to Friday AEST).

Unsubscription from a newsletter does not delete that information from my third-party newsletter database, it merely unsubscribes you from getting the newsletter or other information. Retaining this information provides a safeguard against accidental re-subscription. You must inform me if you wish to be permanently erased from the database. If you later re-subscribe, you will receive the communications to which you re-subscribed. You may also be re-subscribed if you subsequently submit an offline application to do so.

How I Use Your Information.

I use your information only to provide the service for which you gave it and send other communications that you have yourself opted into.

Any personally identifiable information you decide to make publicly available on my site, such as posting comments on my blog page, will be available to others. If you remove information that you have made public on my site, copies may remain viewable in cached and archived pages on search engines such as Google, or if other users have copied or saved that information. I do not have access or control of such cached or archived information. You will need to contact that source if you want the information you posted removed.

Non-personally identifiable information may be stored indefinitely.

I will disclose your information where required to do so by law, if subject to subpoena or other legal proceeding. I will never share, sell, or rent individual personal information with anyone without your advance permission or unless ordered by a court of law.

I may display personal testimonials or reviews. If you wish to delete a testimonial or review, contact me.

Links to Other Web Sites

I am not responsible for the practices employed by other websites. You are subject to their own rules and policies.

Social Media Widgets

My site includes social media features such as the Facebook Like button and other widgets. These features may collect your IP address and which page you are visiting on my site, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. Social media features and widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on my site. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing it.

Changes to My Privacy Policy

The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation – GDPR – introduced in May 2018 resulted in a flood of privacy policy update emails all over the world. I understand those kinds of email can be annoying, so when I make future changes to this policy, I will draw it to your attention within the regular approved communication I have with you. I will not email you specifically just to inform you of changes to this policy. That would just be annoying.

The latest update date is posted below.

If you have any questions about this policy, contact me.
