Privacy & Cookies

We strictly limit our use of cookies. We refuse to install any software on our site that will track you across the internet or invade your privacy. We do collect a little bit of information about the traffic we receive here on, but we use a private, self-hosted tracking system to do so. The data is entirely an anonymous. We cannot determine who you are based on traffic reports.

If you want to unsubscribe for our list, you may do so at any time. If you subscribe to one of our RSS feeds, we’ll show up in your reader.

Amateur Vaquero is affiliated with the following retailers:

  • Barnes & Nobe (via CJ Affiliate)
  • iTunes

This means that links to our books are affiliate links, which means we get a bit of credit if you click one of those links and then buy something.

We promise this isn’t creepy. Here’s are some true statements if you feel weird about it:

  • we can’t see any details about you
  • we are not able to contact you about your purchase
  • the books do not cost more because we recommended them to you
  • we have no idea who you are, what you are buying, or where purchases are delivered

The retailer you buy from will, of course, keep a record of your purchase. The privacy of that information rests with whomever you choose to conduct business with online. We are simply a middle-man connecting you to books you may want to read.
