Terms and Conditions

In keeping with my general philosophy for straight-talking, these terms and conditions and privacy statements are purposely brief and in plain English. If you are in any doubt as to any aspect of the statements below, email me at miles@milesallen.net.


I use industry standard measures to secure and maintain security of your data. As for all companies using the internet there is an inherent risk, however small, of a breach. By using this site or services, you accept this risk.

I use third-party providers of online services, for example, website hosting, email providers and development tools, and your data will inevitably be stored either briefly or long term on their secure servers. I only use well-established companies who I believe use appropriate measures to protect your data. It is, after all, in their best interest to do so.

I have an innate dislike for high-pressure and ‘spam’ marketing techniques, and promise your data will not knowingly be shared with marketing companies that would use your data to advertise separately to you or pass on your data to any marketing lists.

If you have any reason to believe any service I provide has played a part in any form of a breach in this policy, contact me using miles@milesallen.net and I will apply reasonable effort to investigate the issue and report back to you me findings within 28 days.

If you wish your data to be permanently removed from my systems then please instruct me through an email to miles@milesallen.net. Your data will be deleted within 28 days.

While I endeavour to keep all information and advice on this site, up to date, the self-publishing industry still evolves at breakneck speed, and therefore any material I provide, in any format, in all ways, is used entirely at your own risk.

You’ve no doubt heard of cookies. They are used to hold snippets of information about you so that websites can provide a better and more focused experience for you. There is an opt-out/opt-in pop-up that allows you to use or not use them. If you opt-out, some of the features on this site may not work.
