Privacy and Cookies Policy

December 2016

This Privacy Policy is designed to inform you about what personally identifiable information (PII) this website collects and what may be done with that PII.

Website Visitors

You are not required to submit any PII to use this website. However, the server for this website may collect data about your visit, your computer’s IP address, browser type, operating system, geographic location, referral source, pages visited, and other “analytics” data. I may review that data from time to time to understand how the website is used and to improve the website for users. I do not currently provide that data to any third parties or track users after they visit my site.

The Elise Darcy website takes your privacy seriously and takes every reasonable precaution to safeguard the personal information that is supplied to me. I have created this privacy policy to demonstrate my commitment to your privacy and the protection of your information.  This website complies to all UK national laws and requirements for user privacy.  Elise Darcy is the sole owner of the information collected on this website.  The personal information you submit to this site will not be shared, sold, or disclosed to third parties in any form, for any purposes, at any time (Except for legal purposes). By submitting your email address to me, you are “opting in” to receive information from me. I will only use this contact information to send you updates about my newsletter and other emails about new products.  You should be aware that anything you post and any PII you disclose in blog comments will be available for others to see, via the internet, around the world.

Aggregated Statistics

This website operates an email newsletter program, used to inform subscribers about products and services supplied by this website. Users can subscribe through an online automated process should they wish to do so at their own discretion.

Subscriptions are taken in compliance with UK Spam Laws detailed in the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations 2003. All personal details relating to subscriptions are held securely and in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.  No personal details are passed on to third parties nor shared with companies/people outside of the company that operates this website.

Email marketing campaigns published by this website may contain tracking facilities within the actual email. Subscriber activity is tracked and stored in a database for future analysis and evaluation.  Such tracked activity may include; the opening of emails, forwarding of emails, the clicking of links within the email content, times, dates and frequency of activity (this is by far a comprehensive list).

This information is used to refine future email campaigns and supply the user with more relevant content based around their activity.

In compliance with UK Spam Laws and the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations 2003 subscribers are given the opportunity to un-subscribe at any time through an automated system. This process is detailed at the footer of each email campaign.  If an automated un-subscription system is unavailable clear instructions on how to un-subscribe will be detailed instead.

If at any time you would like me to remove your PII from my database, please email me directly at elise(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign) *protected email*. You may unsubscribe from my blog and mailing list by visiting Mailerlite directly or by clicking on the unsubscribe link on any newsletter.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Please do not disclose to me the PII of any other person without that person’s consent.

This site is directed to adults and not directed to children under the age of 13. I ask that minors do not submit any PII. This site complies with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and does not permit registration by, and will not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from, anyone under 13 years of age.

I will take reasonable technical precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your PII. I will not provide your email address or any other PII to any other person, other than (i) to Mailerlite or other provider which assists me in sending newsletters and emails, or (ii) if required to be disclosed by law or in connection with any actual or threatened legal proceeding.

I reserve the right to remove any comments from the blog if I find them offensive, defamatory, obscene, abusive, vulgar, or in any way inappropriate.

This website and blog contains hyperlinks to other websites. Please be aware that I am not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites.  I would therefore encourage users to be aware when they leave this site, to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information.  This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this website.


A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Elise Darcy uses cookies to help identify and track visitors, their usage of the Elise Darcy website, and their 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 Elise Darcy website, with the drawback that certain features of the Elise Darcy website may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Privacy Policy Changes

If I decide to change the privacy policy, I will post those changes to this privacy statement, on the Elise Darcy website, and other places deemed appropriate so users are always aware of what information I collect, how I use it, and under what circumstances, if any, I disclose it. I will only use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.
