How we use and collect data
We collect our data as people sign up to receive our news letter, special offers on children’s books and author visits. As we publish books, we also receive submissions. Those who sign up for our news letter for schools are asked to supply their email address, the names of the school they work for and their position. They can unsubscribe at any time. The news letter is about fiction in general for children and also gives schools news about our fiction and our authors. We do not share this data with any third parties.
Teachers sometimes send reviews of books or work produced at our workshops run by our authors. The work frequently has the name of the students and their age on it. We do not retain any such work but it is returned to schools. Where the names of young reviewers is mentioned in any of our publications, parental consent has been obtained. Apart from our newsletter, we also keep a small number of schools updated about author workshops. The data here ( email addresses, names of contacts, name of schools and school addresses) have been supplied by the contacts who agreed that they wanted to continue to receive information about author visits, creative writing workshops and special book offers. We do not share this information with any third parties. The data is used for the specific purposes I have outlined.
As publishers we receive submissions for books. Any data we receive is not shared with third parties, except where permission has been given, for a specific purpose, such as publication or publicity.
