Who Am I
A Book Lovin’ Mama’s Blog is a blog that shares reviews of books that I read throughout the year and posts that share some of my life stories. The books that I receive come from authors, publishing companies, blog tour companies, or are purchased by my own book budget throughout the year. I’m a hobbyist book review blog and do not get paid at all for my blog via the authors, publishing companies, blog tour companies, etc. I love sharing my love of reading and the books I read to my followers.
What personal data do I collect and why do I collect it?
A Book Lovin’ Mama’s Blog offers giveaways on a monthly basis. I will collect your name and email address so if you win you can be contacted and arrangements made for you to collect the prize.
Some giveaways may be sponsored by a third party, such as an author or publisher. When this is the case it will be stated in the giveaway so you are aware before entering the draw. I will share the winner(s) information only with the third party. This will be for the purpose of collecting the prize.
If you are a winner I may ask for further personal information such as a mailing address so I can send you the prize. Once you have confirmed you have received your prize or after 3 months has passed whichever is first, this information will be deleted.
By entering your name and email address you are giving A Book Lovin’ Mama’s Blog or when applicable the third party consent to contact you as described above.
I collect your personal information on your consent and it will be used solely for the purposes of the giveaway. Your information will never be sold, rented or shared with any other third party.
If you wish to withdraw your entry from a competition and have your details deleted please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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. Visitors can choose to leave comments anonymously at any time on the blog as well.
When clicking on affiliate links this will redirect you off A Book Lovin’ Mama’s Blog to a vendor – usually Amazon.com. If you purchase a product from the vendor, this will result in A Book Lovin’ Mama’s Blog getting a small commission.
All purchases are anonymous and although I can view what has been purchased in a given time period, I cannot see who purchased it.
The vendor keeps all personal details anonymous from A Book Lovin’ Mama’s Blog.
