What Information Does This Site Collect?

Newsletter, Blog, Giveaways and Contests:

If you voluntarily sign up for the Historical Tails newsletter, blog, giveaways and contests this site will record your email address and first name. If you win a physical prize, you will be asked to give your name and physical address. You can refuse to supply personal information, but that will exclude you from certain related activities such as receiving newsletters, blogs, and free offers. When subscribers click on a link in one of our emails or fills out a form, the site may record this information (see below how this information is used).

Subscribers may unsubscribe at any time. You may ask for all your data to be deleted at any time.

Non-personal Information

This website may collect non-personal information about visitors when they interact with the site. This information may include the browser name, means of connection to the site, and other non-identifying information.


This website may use “cookies” to enhance visitor experience. Typically, cookies may be placed on visitors' hard drive for record-keeping purposes and sometimes to track information about them. Visitors may choose to set their web browser to refuse cookies, or to send an alert when cookies are being sent. If they do so, note that some parts of the site may not function properly.

How Is the Information Used?

Newsletter, blog, giveaway and contest subscribers’ names and emails will only be used for receiving the newsletters, the blog, the giveaway or contest, or communication from Historical Tails.

Information on which email links are clicked on the most will help Historical Tails choose links that interest readers in future emails.

Historical Tails may use affiliate codes in some of the emails or on the site. 

Sharing of Personal Information

Subscriber information is never shared with a third party. The only exception is that email addresses may occasionally be used to create lookalike audiences for online marketing. This in no way distributes the emails or signs subscribers up to any other services.

Third-party links

Sometimes Historical Tails will include third-party links through email or on the website. These sites have their own policies and you should read those before subscribing or purchasing from them.

Security of Information

All information is saved by GoDaddy (host of this site), MailChimp (email list provider), Google Drive and Dropbox (computer systems backup), and our office laptops and computers and only Historical Tails and Vicki Tashman can access them. Should a data breach ever occur, subscribers will be notified within 7 days.
