Hello, my friend! Thank you for visiting CaitFlanders.com, run by me: Cait Flanders. Considering that so much of my work discusses slowing down, taking control of your life and using things more intentionally, it should come as no surprise that I have a huge amount of respect for not only the time we spend together here, but also your personal information and your privacy.
This page explains how I use any personal information I collect from you, including how I collect it and what I use it for. I may update this page from time-to-time, if I start using a new tool or something fun like that! But on the whole, this is just a website that I use to share my story + occasionally tell you when a new book of mine is being released. If you have any questions about the data I hold on you, please contact me.
How + Why I Collect Information
If you leave a comment on my blog, WordPress collects: the name you enter, the email address and/or website URL you enter, as well as your IP address. I don’t do anything with this information. It simply lives in the backend of my website (which is multi-password protected).
If you sign up for my newsletter, I collect: the first name + the email address you enter. This information is stored in ConvertKit (which is safe and secure, and password protected). I use this information to email you (personal newsletters + book updates) directly. I will never share your email address, and you can unsubscribe anytime.
At this point, it’s worth making a legal disclaimer. Whenever I give “advice”, I’m writing from personal experience. (See how I put “advice” in quotes? I am definitely not an expert.) Aside from my degree in Communications, I have no formal training or credentials. If you need specific help, I hope you’ll find the appropriate support. <3
And finally, I don’t publish sponsored content, paid reviews or links, or anything else like that on this website. But I am an affiliate for Amazon! The only things I link to are books I love. If you buy one, I will receive a very tiny bit of money, which helps offset the ~$2,500+/year it costs to maintain the website + newsletter. But please pause before making any purchase, and ask yourself if you’re actually going to read it or if it’s simply going to collect dust. I love books, but they are more valuable when you actually read them. :)
