Privacy Policy

Here at The Gentle Creative I take your data very seriously.

I only collect two items of data through the sign-up form process. These are your email address so I can email you, and your name because I like to know who I am talking to. These are kept securely within the aweber email marketing system.

I’m currently sending out a weekly article about writing, the writing process and getting past your own inner gremlins from Substack on Friday at 1pm UK time. I will add your email to this list so that you receive it. Again, these email details are held securely within my account on Substack. You can unsubscribe at any time by clicking on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email.

At the end of the month I also send out an Insider email. This is where I share how my own creativity has gone that month – the good, the bad and the ugly.

You have the right to withdraw consent to marketing at any time by emailing or by clicking on Unsubscribe at the bottom of any email I send you.

There is no obligation on the website for you to provide this information. If you do I send you an email so that you can confirm again that you are happy to be on the mailing list.

Please note that if you post comments on this site, any personally identifiable information you provide in those comments or articles may be read, viewed or used by anyone viewing them.

If you send me a message via the contact form then I will hold your email address and any other details that you choose to give me.

If you buy a book from me I will also hold your address. All payment details are held and processed securely by Paypal. I do not have access to them. If you purchase a book through Amazon or any other retailer I do not see any of your data.

I do not give your data to 3rd party suppliers though I may occasionally feature a third party product or service.

The website does contain some affiliate links. These are only for products, books or services that have used myself or have confidence in recommending.

This website is regularly scanned for malware and has an SSL certificate.

All content is created by Cali Bird unless otherwise stated.

The website may include links to third-party websites, plug-ins and applications. Clicking on those links or enabling those connections may allow third parties to collect or share data about you. I do not control these third-party websites and am not responsible for their privacy statements. When you leave my website, I encourage you to read the privacy notice of every website you visit.

I use the Jetpack plugin to gain site statistics but this data does not reveal your identity and as such in itself is not personal data.
