Privacy Policy


Hello, I’m Kit Daven. I am a sole proprietor operating as Eager Eye Books. I am simply a writer, and Eager Eye Books is my author press. If there was another way for readers to be informed of my updates without giving me their names and emails addresses, I’d be first in line to implement that kind of set up. I truly have no interest in your personal data except for the purpose of keeping an email list of “true fans”.

I do not sell anything directly through my website. All buy links are redirected to merchants sites (e.g. Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc), where your personal data is subject to their privacy policies. If at any time in the future, I do decide to sell books directly, all payments will be handled securely by a third-party payment processor (e.g. PayPal). Also, I am an Affiliate of Amazon, so most links to products on my website are affiliate links.

My mailing list uses Mailchimp as its platform; they’re opt-in and you can unsubscribe at any time. Emails are automatically generated every time I update my blog, and I send out about 2-3 newsletters per year.

Below are more in-depth explanations regarding my online information practices. Your data protection and privacy are important to me, so please read on.

Data Collection & Usage

What data do I collect from you?

I collect the following personal information:

  • name (optional)
  • email address

How do I collect your personal data? 

I collect your personal information via the following forms:

  • contact form (supported by WP-Spamshield, a WordPress plugin)
  • subscription form (supported by Mailchimp)

How do I store your personal data?

The personal information I collect is stored on the following data servers:

  • MailChimp – This is my system for distributing blog updates and an electronic newsletter. Mailchimp requires a double opt-in. That means that after a subscriber signs up, they have to confirm their opt-in via email. And in compliancy with the General Data Protection Regulation, European residents must consent to being added to my email list. MailChimp’s servers are based in the US but are registered with the EU-US Privacy Shield.
  • 1&1 – This is the server that hosts my website. Their privacy policy can be found here:

How do I use your personal data?

I use the personal information I collect as follows:

  • to contact you in response to your inquiry or comments
  • to give you immediate access to content published on my blog
  • to give you access to information only available in my electronic newsletter (e.g. discounts)

I will never use this data for marketing or promotion purposes without getting your permission in writing first (for example, to publish your testimonial for me on my website).

With whom is your personal data shared?

Absolutely no one. I will never lease, distribute or sell your information to third parties unless I am required to do so by law.

How long do I keep your personal data?

You can unsubscribe at any time through MailChimp, or contact me directly at and I will do it for you.


A cookie is a small file placed on your computer’s hard drive. It enables my website to identify your computer as you view different pages on my website. Cookies do not provide me with access to your computer or any information about you other than than which you elect to share with me.

You can use your web browser’s cookie settings to determine how my website uses cookies. If you do not want my website to store cookies on your computer or device, you can amend your settings. Please note that this may affect how my website functions, and some pages may become unavailable to you.

I currently do not intentionally use cookies for any purpose. However, the WordPress theme I use might.

Embedded Content from Other Websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Third-Party Links

This website includes links to third-party websites, plug-ins and applications. Clicking on those links or enabling those connections may allow third parties to collect or share data about you. I do not control these third-party websites and are not responsible for their privacy statements. When you leave my website, I encourage you to read the privacy notice of every website you visit.

Affiliate Links

I am a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means to earn fees to and affiliated sites. This website contains Amazon affiliate links.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Eager Eye Books may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, at my discretion. I encourage visitors to frequently check this page for any changes.
