Service Providers
Love and Literature does use some third party companies to monitor and analyse the content performance and usage of this website. These third parties have some access to your data, yet only to perform these tasks and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose. The third party/analytics services currently in use are:

- Visitor Analytics
Visitor Analytics is a simple website analytics service which measures the traffic and visitors' general details of the customers' websites. Collecting these statistics, a website can make their visitors' experience better (e.g. which pages they visit and when, where they are approximately located, where does a user land first or if they are coming from a specific referral). Basically, as a website owner using Visitor Analytics, we are using cookies to collect data about visitors' device type and screen size, approximate location, browser, OS, IPs, page visits, bounce rate, conversions and popular content on the website. All this data is pseudonymous and Visitor Analytics will never use the collected data to identify individual users or to match it with additional information on an individual user. Each visitor has control over the cookies placement. You can control and/or delete cookies as you wish by checking your browser settings on each device - for details, see aboutcookies.org. For further information, please visit https://www.visitor-analytics.io/ and check Visitor Analytics’ Terms Of Use, Cookie Information.

- Google Analytics
Google Analytics is a web analytics service offered by Google that tracks and reports website traffic. Google uses the data collected to track and monitor the use of our Service. This data is shared with other Google services. Google may use the collected data to contextualise and personalise the ads of its own advertising network. You can opt-out of having made your activity on the Service available to Google Analytics by installing the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on. The add-on prevents the Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js, analytics.js, and dc.js) from sharing information with Google Analytics about visits activity. For more information on the privacy practices of Google, please visit the Google Privacy & Terms web page.

Our Service may contain links to other sites that are not operated by us. If you click on a third party link, you will be directed to that third party's site. Love and Literature does advise that you review the Privacy Policy of every site you visit. We have no control over and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites or services.

Additional Information
Unless otherwise stated, all of the books which I have reviewed are purchased using my own money and I have not been asked to review them. I am not affiliated with any publishers or authors, and I do not receive anything for my reviews. If an author asks me to review and/or if I receive something in exchange for a review, I will clearly state this within the blog post regarding such book, and/or through marking said book with an asterix symbol ('*') on the 'Book Reviews' page of this website.
