Privacy Policy & Protocol GDPR

The short version:

By subscribing, you confirm you have read and give your consent to the following:

When you subscribe to my newsletter, I (that is Chris Chelser/Azera Publishing) only collect your email address for the sole purpose of sending you updates about my books or book launches.

I only share your email address with parties who manage the database for me and who allow me to send the emails to you. I keep those parties to an absolute minimum (currently, there are only 2, MailChimp and Upviral). The only other reason I would ever share your details is when I’m required to do so by law or by court order, however unlikely it is that this might ever happen.

As a subscriber, you have the express right to review your data, update it or remove it permanently by unsubscribing. You have the right to complain, and to speak to an actual person (which I am). I will respond asap, but at least within a month.

If you have any questions, please email me at chris@chrischelser.com
