Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is:

Sales data

We use your personal information as you have supplied in order to facilitate your purchases. We may use it to facilitate deliveries of products or services, such as a postal address. As such, we will need to keep a record of such to administer your purchases. We will take reasonable measures to protect this from access from third parties by use of security such as SSL certificates, passwords, and other encryption methods.

We do not, and will not, sell your purchasing data to third parties


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service Privacy Policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

All comments will be moderated for quality and any that appear to be spam, unrelated to the page commented on, harassing, hateful, or derogatory to our brand may be deleted by Ghost Moth Press at their discretion and without right of appeal.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

Other third party cookies, such as finding how many site visitors we have had may track such things as where you are in the world. You can opt out of these by selecting “select cookies” or “reject all” in our cookie options settings.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with

If you subscribe to our newsletter, your email address will be used by the company “Mailerlite” in order to facilitate the sending of said newsletter, but they will not have access or permission to send you any other emails except for official Ghost Moth Press subscribed emails. You may unsubscribe at any time, and for any reason.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

If you make a purchase from the site, the system may retain the information in order to facilitate that order or save for future purchases. You may email us to ask for this data to be removed from our website systems, however we may retain contact details in our accounting systems for the length of time required by the UK government for taxation verification.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
