I use the following social media as author Julia J Simpson:
Instagram (Instagram’s data policy)
As these are all separate web sites independent of my web site and author blog, and independent of one another, it is up to you to know and understand each site’s individual privacy policies. As with juliajsimpson.com, I do not knowingly personally collect, store, or process any personal data on these sites. All data collected via these sites and the tools and applications available to me on the site/page/profile management interfaces available to me through my accounts. Any data would be used through the tools and applications provided, such as to reply to a comment, send a private message, tag you in a post or photo, mention you in a comment/post/photo, or through analytical tools provided by the web site for the purpose of understanding who follows my page, where they are generally located, and how they interact with my page/posts.
With the exception of Instagram (see below), I do not personally use any third-party analytical tools or plugins to analyze or process your data, nor would I ask for your personal information beyond what you choose to provide to me for whatever reason.
If you wish to unfollow or unfriend me at any of these sites, you can typically do so by clicking on my profile and clicking on the unfriend/unfollow/unsubscribe button. If you wish to delete any posts, comments, likes, or other interactions, you will have to do that on a post-by-post basis. You can generally find instructions via the help section of the web site in question.
For Instagram, I do use a third-party application called Followers-Unfollowers. This application integrates with my Instagram account to tell me who I follow, who follows me, who I follow but who doesn’t follow me back, who follows me but I don’t follow back, mutual followers (I follow them, they follow me), unfollowers (who has recently unfollowed me), and also shows me how often people are or are not liking/commenting on my posts. I use this data to help me streamline my Instagram interaction. It allows me to limit the time I spend on those who aren’t reciprocating. It alerts me to followers I may have missed and may want to follow back, and it allows me to realize which of my Instagram friends I may have forgotten or unintentionally neglected. I do not knowingly personally collect, store, or process any of this data and only use it within the parameters of the application.
If you choose to leave a review on my book at Amazon.com, your review will be posted on the Amazon.com web site on my book’s sale page, and anyone may see or read your review, including me. I do not respond to reviews or personally use your data in any way.
