A few housekeeping issues, if I may…

This page covers a range of topics:

This is the uninteresting small print, so you probably want to stop reading and go and look at the rest of the site unless you have a particular interest in any of the topics covered.


I collect limited amounts of data. This data is held in order:

  • to respond to questions
  • to tell people about my books and other activities that may be of interest; and
  • to understand how this website is used and improve the effectiveness of my marketing

If you have any questions or directions about the use of your data, please contact me directly at: privacy AT simon cann DOT com.

Readers’ Group

Contact details for members of my readers’ group are held so that I can tell you about my books and other projects (usually this contact will come when I can send you Simon Says, my monthly readers’ group communiqué).

The membership list is administered by a specialist company, MailerLite, and the data is held subject to their terms of use and privacy policy.

You may remove your details from my readers’ group mailing list at any time by using the unsubscribe link that comes in every email. When you use this link, your details will be immediately removed. You may also direct that your details are removed by getting in touch at the email address above.

I maintain other mailing lists (for instance, for my review team). These are also maintained by MailerLite and held subject to similar conditions.

In highly limited circumstances personal data will be shared with these third parties in connection with these specialized tasks.
