I wanted to clarify something that I think, in light of recent events, is important.
I ran a blog post and sent out a notice this week about postcards being available for my upcoming book, and stated if you were interested in receiving one, you send your mailing info to my assistant. She expressed concern that she wasn’t receiving full mailing address information. (Such as lack of a name to go with the address).
I appreciate everyone’s wariness, and want to assure you of several things.
1). When I run a contest or send out postcards, here’s what happens. I give you the email of my assistant. She lives in a different state from me, so in the case of postcards, you send your information to her directly. I don’t see your name and address at all unless you’ve emailed it to me directly. If such is the case, as soon as I forward your information to my assistant, I immediately delete it from my computer.
2). Once my assistant sends either a prize or post card to you, she immediately deletes your information from her computer. We will never, ever, save your information. It’s not compiled in a database, it’s not saved in a mailing list. It’s used for the purpose it’s intended, and then immediately and forever deleted.
I want to assure you that your privacy is important to me. If you have concerns, you can always address them to me at jaci @ jaciburton. com or to my assistant Fatin @ novelsidekick . com
