When you visit our website https://www.JoLinsdell.com, and use our services, you trust us with your personal information. We take your privacy very seriously. In this privacy policy, we seek to explain to you in the clearest way possible what information we collect, how we use it and what rights you have in relation to it. We hope you take some time to read through it carefully, as it is important. If there are any terms in this privacy policy that you do not agree with, please discontinue use of our Sites and our services.

This privacy policy applies to all information collected through our website (such as https://www.JoLinsdell.com), and/or any related services, sales, marketing or events (we refer to them collectively in this privacy policy as the "Services").


Please read this privacy policy carefully as it will help you make informed decisions about sharing your personal information with us.

We do not knowingly solicit data from or market to children under 18 years of age. By using the Services, you represent that you are at least 18 or that you are the parent or guardian of such a minor and consent to such minor dependent’s use of the Services. If we learn that personal information from users less than 18 years of age has been collected, we will deactivate the account and take reasonable measures to promptly delete such data from our records. If you become aware of any data we have collected from children under age 18, please contact us at jo_bins@yahoo.com.

Data Breach

A privacy breach occurs when there is unauthorized access to or collection, use, disclosure or disposal of personal information. You will be notified about data breaches when Jo Linsdell believes you are likely to be at risk or serious harm. For example, a data breach may be likely to result in serious financial harm or harm to your mental or physical well-being. In the event that Jo Linsdell becomes aware of a security breach which has resulted or may result in unauthorized access, use or disclosure of personal information Jo Linsdell will promptly investigate the matter and notify the applicable Supervisory Authority not later than 72 hours after having become aware of it, unless the personal data breach is unlikely to result in a risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons.

Fair use:

This website contains some quotations and excerpts from copyrighted material. These uses fall well within the copyright doctrine of “Fair Use.”
Section 107 of the United States Code, Title 17, specifies the conditions under which, “the fair use of a copyrighted work . . . for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching . . ., scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright.” It provides four considerations for determining fair use: (1) The purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes, (2) The nature of the copyrighted work, (3) The amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole, and (4) The effect of the use upon the potential market for, or value of, the copyrighted work.

The use on this website of other material is primarily for “criticism, comment, news reporting, scholarship or research” (and to some extent teaching). (1) (a) The “purpose and character” of the website (with no advertising) and any derivative book(s) (with few on-demand copies) are not “commercial.” (b) The overwhelming majority of the material is the author’s original work. It is in no way a mere collection of others’ copyrighted works, nor competitive with those sources. (2) The “nature of the copyrighted work” quoted is often “news” or “history,” categories given lesser protection in fair use cases than works of fiction. (3) Most uses involve excerpts rather than entire works.
Because the adverse financial impact on copyright owners is central to the purpose of copyright law, and the analysis of alleged violations, it’s relevant to note that, under factor (4), (a) no one in search of the quoted material would substitute this blog or book for the original source, (b) it is highly unlikely this website (or book created from it) will ever have more than a de minimis impact on any of the copyright works’ potential market, and (c) to the extent it might do so, it would be far more likely be a positive, rather than a negative, impact (by drawing attention to the work, crediting it, and providing a source where it may be found).
Finally, to the extent any copyright owner may wish, consideration will be given to all reasonable requests that copyright material be removed from this website and from future on-demand printings (there would be no back stock of books).

This blog disclaimer is subject to change at anytime.

The computers/servers in which I store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
