An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it.

Newsletters may consist of author updates, press, blog updates, deleted scenes, Advanced Reader Copy information, contest information and direct marketing materials.

The information collected will be kept until the subscriber requests the removal of their information by mail or by using the unsubscribe button. We do not give provide names and email address collected to third parties.
