Information That We Collect
Newsletter and Info about Services
When you enter your name and email address in our subscriber box, you are agreeing to receive emails from us, including but not limited to our newsletter and information about our services. We do not sell or share our mailing list with anyone. In addition, we use the double opt-in method to ensure you only receive the mailings you signed up for. This helps in the war against Spam and also keeps undesirable elements off our mailing list.
When you subscribe, we ask for your email address, your first and last name and (sometimes) your city, state and country. New subscribers providing names that are obviously a hoax or a joke will be deleted.
From time to time we may make announcements to our mailing list or send you information on special offers that are not published within the framework of the regular publications you receive. If you do not wish to receive these notices, you can use the Unsubscribe link to remove yourself from all Writer’s Muse mailings.
Writer’s Muse uses the mailing service Mailer Lite (compliant with CAN-Spam) and provides an Unsubscribe link in every issue.
Writers’ Muse Coaching Service
Clients of Milli Thornton’s Writers’ Muse Coaching Service are required to complete an email survey and a consultation call before being accepted for a coaching program. Clients are also required to complete three steps in between the survey and the consultation call:
(a) verify they have read and understood all of the coaching service material at http://www.writersmusecoaching.com
(b) download Skype for the purpose of the recorded consultation call, or otherwise have informed Milli that the applicant prefers a telephone call (in the understanding that a recording of the telephone call cannot be provided).
Contact details requested from applicants and clients of Writers’ Muse Coaching Service will be used only for contact between Milli Thornton and the applicant or client. Should a reason for any third party contact arise (such as introducing a colleague who can help the client with a particular project or issue), permission will be sought first before contact details are passed on to the third party.
