What personal data we collect and why we collect it
If you want to engage with us directly or download one of our freebies we will collect your name (it can be first name only) and your email address so we know where to send it.
If you subscribe to our newsletter we will collect your name, your email address and your preferred language (choice between English or Spanish) so that we can contact you.
We don’t like spam so I will only contact you when I have something really important to say, like when my next book is coming out, or to wish you well on a holiday, usually Christmas or Easter. We will only do this when we have the time to draw a cool pic that I can send you.
See below other information that we collect that its not super obvious when your visit our site.
