Privacy & Cookies

This is the privacy and cookies policy for the A Walk by the Sea website. The website is run by me, Krisztina Csiki, and the purpose of it is to promote my novel A Walk by the Sea. In summary, I respect your privacy but do the same things that most other websites do to store information about your visit in order to make the running of the website possible.

IP addresses

When you visit the website, it automatically receives your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address alongside other common information. Your IP address is anonymously shared with freegeoip.app in order to derive the country that you are visiting from. This information is used to customise web links to direct you to pages most relevant to you. Information related to your IP address is stored as a session variable in your browser for the duration of your visit.

Cookies

Like almost all websites, this one also uses cookies to make your user experience better. A cookie is a small string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer and which the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. These cookies are used to help the website track browsing patterns and see how the visitors use the website, as well as to set the visitors’ website access preferences.

Visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using the website, with the drawback that certain features of the website may not function properly without the aid of cookies. Please also note that if you wish to prevent the use of cookies, some of the third-party services that we use may also use cookies and you may have to set your browser to refuse cookies also from them.

Newsletter

If you sign up for the newsletter, this site will record your email address and name. You can refuse to supply personal information, but that will exclude you from certain related activities such as receiving newsletters and free offers. When subscribers click on a link in one of my emails or fill out a form, the site may record this information.

Newsletter subscribers may unsubscribe at any time. You may ask for all your data to be deleted at any time.

I use Mailchimp for the newsletter campaigns. They provide a service that allows me to send newsletter to you. Your newsletter subscription related data is stored on MailChimp's servers, which are located in the United States. To learn more about MailChimp's services and how they handle data, you can read MailChimp's Privacy Policy, Cookie Statement and Terms of Use.

Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics to analyse the use of the website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service offered by Google that tracks and reports website traffic. Google uses the data collected to track and monitor the use of our Service. This data is shared with other Google services. Google may use the collected data to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network. You can opt-out of having made your activity on the Service available to Google Analytics by installing the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on. The add-on prevents the Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js, analytics.js, and dc.js) from sharing information with Google Analytics about visits activity. For more information on the privacy practices of Google, please visit the Google Privacy & Terms web page.
