Your privacy is incredibly important to us. Below are specific details about what data we collect and why.
Who We Are
The website address of this site is: www.chosentoremember.com. This website contains information on books and other written materials and videos written by James Blanchard Cisneros, who is based in the United States.
What Personal Data We Collect and Why We Collect It
When you subscribe to receive our mailings, we collect your first name and email address so that we have the information needed to email you the newsletter. In addition, we collect the name of the state where you live, so that we can have an idea where our subscribers are coming from.
You can unsubscribe at any time using a link at the bottom of every mailing that says “Click here to unsubscribe.” In addition, you can change the frequency of the mailings you receive by clicking “Edit your subscription” at the bottom of every mailing.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
In the contact forms, we collect your name and email address to be able to reply to your comment. This data is stored indefinitely, unless you request that we delete it.
Book Purchase Form
When you purchase a book on our web site, we retain the name, mailing address and email address. The payment is processed through a secure purchasing system, which does not send us the credit card information.
If you check the box that says you want to be added to our mailing list, we will add your email address to our mailing list. Otherwise, we will only send you emails in regard to fulfilling your purchase. This data is retained indefinitely, unless you request that we delete it.
Ask the Author Form
In the Ask the Author form, we collect your name and email address to be able to reply to your comment. In addition, we collect the name of the town, state and country where you live, so that we can have an idea where the you are coming from.
The question and answer may be published on our web site and upcoming “Ask the Author” book, unless you specify that you would like your inquiry to be private. We will print your first name, town, state and country – unless you notify us to do otherwise.
This data is stored indefinitely, unless you request that we delete it.
Newsletters & Emails
We will send you emails which you have signed up to receive, or which pertain to the services you requested.
To send you newsletters, we use the name and email address you provide us. Our site also logs the IP address you used when you signed up for the service to prevent abuse of the system. We also store the name of the state that you registered from, so that we can have an idea where the newsletter subscribers are coming from.
Like most newsletters, there is code in the email to track opens and clicks. We use this information to improve the content of our newsletters.
Who We Share Your Data With
We do not sell or share your data.

How Long We Retain Your Data
Your data submissions related to comment, contact forms, newsletter subscription sign ups and on site book purchases are retained indefinitely. However if you request that your comment, contact form, newsletter subscription or purchase receipt is deleted, we will do that as soon as possible, and the data related to it will be removed.
