Privacy and Policies

Welcome to our blog! 

Owner: Jackie!

GDPR

General Data Protection Regulation

Thanks to the people over at Writers' HQ for sparking the ideas for my own GDPR policy.

As of May 25th 2018 . . We have to have one of these policies to explain how we comply with the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), the DPA (Data Protection Act) and the PECR (Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations) because of the law set in place to protect the privacy of EU members and uphold their new law.

So, before we get on to the good stuff, let me explain.

COOKIES

When you clicked on to our site you should have seen a statement regarding cookies from Google. If you no longer want to see our content basically, please go in and block them. But do note if stuff starts going wonky, remember you blocked your cookies.

STATS 
We use Google Analytics to track real-time stats to see what type of content on our blog you guys are interested in. If we didn't, how would we know right? But, don't be afraid the most we see about you is your country / region / (I don't know any other terms), and your IP address. No big deal right?

Also, if you click our website link from a social media sites such as Facebook, Google Analytics tells us that as well and it tells us that you visited our site via Facebook. Not really much more to that.

So, to sum it up. We do NOT know your address...

We also use AddThis to show us what posts are being shared. However, it's not tracking you, it's tracking our content. So, don't worry..

DATA
We don't really store any of your information on our website. All of our add-ons on our side bar comes from Google.. The most we store on our website about you and your data is your email address when following us. And the only person that actually has access to that information is the owner, Jackie.

It's your right to have your information deleted. If you no longer want to follow our blog, you can easily unsubscribe, however feel free to send us an email at, fireandicebookreviews@gmail.com, to be removed from our system.

SOCIAL MEDIA

When it comes to social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Google Plus, Snapchat, etc. We do not store your information, at the most we may follow you and sometimes we may contact you via those sites.

Simple, easy, quick, done! We comply to the new laws and we definitely respect your rights and we will NEVER share your information.  As a follower or visitor of this site, we respect your privacy.

Now continue on to read more about our review policy!


On this blog we read a little of everything, but we love romance of all kinds. From young adult to erotica. We are always on the hunt for our next book boyfriend. 

We rate and review each book honestly. Reviews are our personal thoughts andd opinions of the book. We rate on a scale from 1 to 6. with 1 being the lowest, and 5 the highest.

Rating Scale:

  •  6 stars ~ ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! We want be forgetting this book any time soon. We will be raving about this book for a long time. (This rating is rare and very hard to earn.)

  • 5 stars ~ we absolutely loved the book. The writing style, plot, flow, and characters were all amazing. We can't stop raving about it. A must read for sure! Top Recommendation. 

  • 4 stars ~ loved it. A really good read. It just didn't have that extra umph to make it a 5 star read. We will still recommend it. 

  • 3 stars ~ It was OK. Not the best, but not the worst either. It had some good qualities about it. But it just wasn't enough or not our cup of tea. We still might recommend it! 

  • 2 stars ~ We didn't care for it. Something was missing, or it just wasn't for us. However we liked something about it. Maybe we know someone that might like it better, so who knows, it may get mentioned to them.

  • 1 star ~ No, we didn't enjoy it for the most part. It probably wasn't for us. Don't think we will be recommending this.

  • DNF (did not finish) ~ Sorry, we couldn't finish it. Wasn't for us or we just couldn't get into it. No recommendation coming from us. Sorry. 

We do not get paid for reviews, and we don't lie and say a book was great when it really wasn't. We give our honest feedback without any bashing of the author. We are not that type of blog.

If your book is rated below 3 stars, you get to decide if it gets posted to Amazon. But we will still post it on our blog and maybe Goodreads regardless. 

As stated above, we don't do any author bashing of any kind. So we ask out of respect that you do not bash or blacklist us in return. Let's please keep it perffessional.

We accept review request from authors and publishers. Due to our schedules and personal lives, it may take up to 3 months for us to read and review your book. However it could also take a week. We ask that you hold off on contacting us about a review at least a month after you have sent your book. 

We do not accept all review requests sent our way. That is because, we may not have time, we are not interested, or it's not a genre we like. So if your book gets turned away, it's not you at all. We promise! 

We do have a kick ass review team. You can sign up HERE if interested. Requests are submitted to the team on a first come first served basis. There is a bit of a list, so please hang in there. If you have any questions about the team or any issues regarding reviews written by our members, please contact Jackie. She speaks for the team. Our team has a two to three week tturn around time. Life happens so it may take up to a month.

You can submit a review request to Shrimalya and Jackie HERE!
