Privacy Policy

Last Updated on April 25, 2020

JE Timlin (“JE Timlin”, “me”, “I”, or “us”) respects your concerns about privacy and values the relationship I have with you. This Privacy Policy describes my privacy practices with respect to information collected through my website, email newsletters, social media pages, my offline contacts, and any other services that link to this Privacy Policy (collectively referred to as the “Services”). This Privacy Policy does not apply to certain of my products and services that display a different privacy policy.

Please carefully review this Privacy Policy below before using my Services. By using my Services, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy, please do not use the Services. I reserve the right to modify or amend the terms of my Privacy Policy from time to time without notice. Your continued use of my Services following the posting of changes to these terms will mean you accept those changes.



When you use the Services by, for example, providing registration details, subscribing to my updates, browsing my site, completing a quiz, requesting information from me or otherwise interacting with my Services, I may gather personal information. “Personal Information” is information that identifies you as an individual or relates to an identifiable individual. Several different types of Personal Information can be gathered when you interact with the Services. Collection of Personal Information is necessary to provide the Services to you or to enhance your consumer experience.

If you disclose any Personal Information relating to other people to me or to my service providers in connection with the Services, you represent that you have the authority to do so and to permit me to use the information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Me and my service providers collect Personal Information in a variety of ways, including:

Through the Services

  • Update / newsletter subscriptions: I collect your email address when you subscribe to my updates;

  • Contact me: I collect personal information for you in offline contexts, including, for example, when you contact me.

From Other Sources

  • Publicly available databases, including marketing and data analytics resources. For example, I may receive email addresses, mailing addresses and demographic information (e.g. age, sex) from these sources;

  • Authors and joint marketing third-parties, when they share the information with me;

  • Social media platforms and other third-party service platforms;

  • Third-party business customers when they share the information with me (e.g., sales data).


Me and my service providers use Personal Information for the following purposes:

Providing the functionality of the Services and fulfilling your requests

  • To respond to your inquiries and fulfil your requests, when you contact me via one of my online contact forms or otherwise, for example, when you send me questions, suggestions, compliments or complaints, or other information about my Services;

  • To enable you to participate in public forums on my website;

  • To complete your transactions, verify your information, fulfil your orders, and provide you with related customer service;

  • To send administrative information to you, such as changes to my terms, conditions, and policies.

I will engage in these activities to manage my contractual relationship with you and/or to comply with a legal obligation.

Providing you with my updates and facilitating social sharing

  • To send you marketing related emails, with information about my services, new products and other news about my work. To opt out of these emails, please see the section labelled Choices and Access;

  • To facilitate social sharing functionality that you choose to use.

I will engage in this activity with your consent or where I have a legitimate interest.

Allowing you to participate in quizzes, contests or other promotions

  • I may offer you the opportunity to participate in quizzes, contests or other promotion.

  • Some of these promotions have additional rules containing information about how I will use and disclose your Personal Information. Please read those additional rules before choosing to participate.

I use this information to manage my contractual relationship with you.

Accomplishing my business purposes

  • For data analysis, for example, to improve the efficiency of my Services;

I engage in these activities to manage my contractual relationship with you, to comply with a legal obligation, and/or based on my legitimate interest.

Aggregating and/or anonymising Personal Information

  • I may aggregate and/or anonymise Personal Information so that it will no longer be considered Personal Information. I do so to generate other data for my use, which I may use and disclose for any purpose, as it no longer identifies you or any other individual.

Combining Personal Information

  • To perform the above functions, I may match information collected from you through different means or at different times, including Personal Information and Other Information (as defined below, see the section labelled Other Information) and use such information along with information collected from other sources, such as demographic information and updated contact information. I or my third-party service providers may also use your information to assess the level of interest in, and use of the Services, my emails, and my other campaigns both on an individual basis and in the aggregate. I may also use and/or combine information we collect off-line or from third party sources to check the accuracy of, enhance and supplement your user records, and to better customise your experience with me.

Other Uses

Except for a few of my child- and teen-directed Services, these Services are not directed to individuals under the age of eighteen (18), and I do not knowingly collect Personal Information from individuals under 18.

For more information on my privacy practices for child-directed Services please refer to the Children’s Privacy Policy below.



I respect the privacy of children and I am committed to complying with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GPDR).

  • Email address: I may collect a child’s email address in order to respond to a one-time request from the child, such as if the child asks me a question. In such case, I promptly delete the child’s email address from my system once I have responded, and I do not use the child’s email address for any other purpose.

I may also collect Other Information automatically from your child’s computer or device, such as the frequency with which the child visits my Site and the pages visited, to support the internal operations of the Site.

These Services are published in the United Kingdom. I attempt to protect the Personal Information of all users of my Services and I attempt to comply with local data protection and consumer rights laws to the extent they may apply to JE Timlin’s services, but my family of Services are located and targeted to United Kindom citizens and my policies are directed at compliance with those laws. If you are uncertain whether this Privacy Policy conflicts with the applicable local privacy laws where you are located, you should not submit your personal information to JE Timlin.

If you are located outside the United Kingdom, you should be aware that your Personal Information may be transferred to and processed in the United Kingdom, the laws of which may have different levels of privacy protection from your country. By using my Services, you thereby consent to the general use of your information as provided in this Privacy Policy and to the transfer of that information to, and processing and storage of that information in, the United Kingdom. In certain circumstances, courts, law enforcement agencies, regulatory agencies or security authorities in the United Kingdom may be entitled to access your Personal Information.
