How Personal Information is Used:
Liking and Commenting on Posts and Pages on Kait’s Bookshelf:
If you create a WordPress account and like or comment on blog posts or pages on Kait’s Bookshelf, then your likes, comments, and profile name will be visible to anyone who visits the blog posts or pages of the Kait’s Bookshelf website. If you would like to delete comments once you’ve made them, then you just need to visit your comment on the page or blog post, select “edit,” and choose the delete or trash option. If you do not see an “edit” option or are unable to delete the comment, then feel free to email me at kait at kaitsbookshelf dot com with the specific comment and blog post title and request that it be deleted. You will receive a confirmation email once the comment has been deleted.
Subscribing to the Kait’s Bookshelf Blog:
If you create a WordPress account then you will also have the option of subscribing to the Kait’s Bookshelf blog. You can do this by clicking the Follow Kait’s Bookshelf button on the Home page or any other page on the website. Once you’ve clicked the follow button, you will receive a notification to the email address associated with your WordPress account each time a new blog post is published on Kait’s Bookshelf. If at any time you wish to stop receiving notifications, or unsubscribe, you may opt out on the website by clicking Following Kait’s Bookshelf. You may also use the Unsubscribe link that is at the bottom of each notification email. Once unsubscribed, you will no longer receive notifications from Kait’s Bookshelf, and your email and WordPress profile will not be stored by Kait’s Bookshelf.
In the past, visitors to the website have been able to subscribe to the blog via email as an alternative to creating a WordPress account. However, Kait’s Bookshelf is not accepting email subscribers at this time. This is due to the amount of spam subscribers that were being received and has nothing to do with privacy issues. It was really just becoming very time consuming sorting through all the spam email addresses. WordPress is working on this issue and once it is resolved, email subscriptions will open again. Anyone who has previously signed up for a Kait’s Bookshelf email subscription will continue to receive an email notification each time a new blog is published. If those receiving the emails decide they no longer wish to receive them, an unsubscribe button can be found at the bottom of each email. Once unsubscribed, your email address will be deleted from the Kait’s Bookshelf subscriber list.
