Who I am
I am author Bonnie Elizabeth and you are visiting my personal publishing site. I list the books I have written, stories I have written, where I have published them such as magazines and anthologies. I also blog about things that I think will interest my readers here at BonnieElizabeth.com
What personal data I collect and why I collect it
I may collect personal data such as a name, an email address, and an IP address. I only use this information if a comment or a contact form comes to me and I need to respond to that information. I do not sell this information. I do have a security plugin that will keep the IP address, however they have done their best to keep all information anonymous. Their full privacy police is here: https://www.wordfence.com/privacy-policy/
By default WordPress does not collect any personal data about visitors, and only collects the data shown on the User Profile screen from registered users.
When visitors leave comments on the site I collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
The contact form I use saves the information, including email, name, and IP address that is collected. I keep this on file on the site for several months simply because I may need to refer back to the original email. After that time it is deleted. I do not share or sell this information to anyone.
The host I use and the theme I use allows me to track some information about each visitor for their analytics.
Who I share your data with
I do not sell information on taken by this site. Several plugins listed above, such as WordFence, do share information with me. Also, affiliate links may share information as well as our anti-spam plugin.
How long I retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so I can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For those who use my contact form, I typically clear out all information after three months.
What rights you have over your data
If you have left a comment, you have the right to request that we delete the comment. I will do my best to comply in a timely manner.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
