In addition, we may use third party services such as Google Analytics that collect, monitor and analyse this information to help us improve our Site and services for you.


What is a ‘cookie’ and do we collect them?

For almost any modern website to work properly, it needs to collect certain basic information on its users. To do this, a site will create files known as cookies – which are small text files – on its users’ computers. These cookies are designed to allow the website to recognise its users on subsequent visits, and are automatically generated.

You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to let you know when a cookie is being sent. However, if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use some portions of our Site. 


Our security policy

The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. 


Our communications policy

By signing up to the Rachel Abbott newsletter, you agree for us to use your Personal Information to contact you with newsletters and any information we deem pertinent to readers of Rachel Abbott's books.

This Privacy Policy is effective as of 22/05/2018 and will remain in effect except with respect to any changes in its provisions in the future, which will be in effect immediately after being posted on this page. 


We reserve the right to update or change our Privacy Policy at any time and you should check this Privacy Policy periodically. Your continued use of the Service after we post any modifications to the Privacy Policy on this page will constitute your acknowledgment of the modifications and your consent to abide and be bound by the modified Privacy Policy.
