Evy Writes discloses personal information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when the Website believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of the Administrator or the public. If you are an Evy Writes subscriber/follower, we will occasionally send you newsletters to tell you about new books and features, solicit your feedback, or keep you up to date with what’s going on at Evy Writes.

Comments

When visitors leave comments on Evy Writes, we ask for email addresses and filter comments using Akismet, an automated spam detection service.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. After approval of your comment, your Gravatar is visible to the public along with your comment.

You may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website when you comment. These are stored as cookies so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you make future comments. These cookies are kept for one year.

A comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely so we can recognize and automatically approve any follow-up to the comment instead of holding it for moderation.

You can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold, except for any data we are obliged to keep for legal, or security purposes.
