Privacy Policy

The Self-Publishing Partnership Ltd is committed to protecting your privacy. This Policy explains when, how and why we collect personal data about our clients, how we use it, when we may disclose it to others and how we keep it secure.

This Policy may be updated periodically so please check back on this page to ensure that you are aware of any changes. By using our website, you are agreeing to be bound by this Policy.

Should you have any queries regarding this Policy and our privacy practices, please contact us by one of the following ways;

a) by e-mail to; enquiries@selfpublishingpartnership.co.uk

b) in writing to; The Publishing Director, The Self-Publishing Partnership Ltd, 7c Green Park Station, Bath BA1 1JB

Collecting Data

We obtain data about you when you contact us directly, either in conversation, by e-mail or via our website. The information we collect might include your name, address, email address, phone number(s), and banking details for subsequent royalty payments.

How is your data used?

We may use your information to:

• carry out our obligations under the terms of our agreed Self-Publishing Agreement

• send you relevant information which you have opted in to receive

Retention of Data

We are required to hold some types of data for set periods. We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity, or as long as is set out in any relevant contract you hold with us.

Who has access to your data?

• We shall not sell, rent or give your data to third parties.

• We shall not share your data with third parties for marketing purposes.

• We may be required to pass your data to our third party service providers, agent subcontractors and other associated organisations for the purposes of completing your requested orders and providing contracted services to you on our behalf (for example, to arrange delivery of books directly to you from our nominated printer). However, when we use third party service providers, we disclose only the personal data that is necessary to deliver the service contracted.

How you can access and update your information

It is important to us that your data is accurate. If you change email address, or any of the other data we hold is inaccurate or out of date, please contact us by either of the following means;

a)  by email to enquiries@selfpublishingpartnership.co.uk

b)  by writing to: The Publishing Director, The Self-Publishing Partnership, 7c Green Park Station, Bath BA1 1JB. 


You have the right to ask for a copy of the data we hold about you, and we shall respond to your request within 30 days. We shall not contact you for marketing purposes by email or phone unless you have given your prior consent.

Security

When you give us personal data, we take steps to ensure that it is treated securely. Non-sensitive details (i.e. email address, etc.) are transmitted normally over the Internet, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of any data you transmit to us, so you send such data at your own risk. Once we receive your data, we make our best effort to ensure it is secure on our systems.

Other websites

Our website may contain links to other websites run by other organisations. This privacy policy applies only to our website. We cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of other sites even if you access them using links from our website. If you linked to our website from a third party site, we are not responsible for the privacy policies of the owners and operators of that site.

Transferring your data outside of Europe

As part of the services offered to you, the data which you provide to us may be transferred to countries outside the European Union (EU). By way of example, this may happen if any of our third party suppliers are ever located in a country outside of the EU. These countries may not have similar data protection laws to the UK. By submitting your personal data, you are agreeing to this transfer, storing or processing. If we transfer your data outside of the EU in this way, we shall take steps to ensure that appropriate security measures are taken with the aim of ensuring that your privacy rights continue to be protected, as outlined in this Policy.

Review of this Policy

We keep this Privacy Policy under review. This Policy was last updated in May 2018.
