Who we are
Hi! I’m Megan Your one-click for romance, humor, healing and love. I value and guard your privacy as if it’s my writing time. The only information I store on my website, (www.meganganesh.com) is information you provide freely, (our own little meet cute) like your name and email address when you sign up for my rocking newsletter (sorry, I had to, my son loves Pete the Cat). If you have any questions or concerns you can contact me here, which leads me to…
Interested in seeing what I’m doing or what’s coming soon and don’t feel like logging on to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and more? You could give me your name and email address and I could send you some teasers for new books I have coming out. Or maybe sometimes something about me. I’m a woman of mystery in other things, but for my newsletter what I send you will be clear cut.
Decide you’re not interested in what I have to say? Lucky for you, you’re not my husband who has to stay. (jk) You can leave whenever you want. No need to give me half. To make a clean break Click unsubscribe at the bottom of any newsletter.
In the effort of transparency, to be clear and be honest, the newsletters do send a message back to my website when opened. This information helps me learn what you like, Red or White, dogs or cats, HEA or HFN (HEA all day!) to better design future content.
I’d love to hear what you have to say so please post comments and let’s discuss. When you grace me with your comments on the site, we collect your vital statistics shown in the comments form. The information collected includes your name, email address, ip address also known as your computer’s address or digits as I like to call it, and your comments. If you ever wish to have your comments removed, (I mis-spell things all the time), or after some thought you don’t want it up, send me a quick note through the contact form and I’ll remove them.
My site is protected by SSL which ensures that everything sent to or from my server is encrypted. In addition, I use very powerful security software to maintain security on my site to the best of my ability.
Sadly, there are many people who would love to fill any website with spam comments. My site is no exception. I use CleanTalk to provide anti-spam services. As such, your comment information will be sent to them for the sole purpose of checking it for spam. CleanTalk works hard to keep data sent from the EU in the EU and data sent from other continents on that continent. If you are concerned with their processing of your data, I urge you not to leave comments.
To protect my site from spam, your information is compared with a list of known spam senders by CleanTalk. CleanTalk only stores your information for a few days to give me time to contest its decision as to whether you are a spammer or not.
I use Wordfence as my bouncer (Are there still bouncers out there?), we share data with them and they send data to the EU. This is a security plugin and keeps this site free from spammers and attack bots making this site and our HEA’s safe.
This is a public website. Once you post a comment, anyone can read it. Please use caution when posting any sensitive information.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of this or other Web sites you visit.
But let’s be real. The only cookie that you’ll probably want set is the one to remember who you are the next time you comment. That’ll make your life easier. Now if only it delivered real cookies.
Website Activity Tracking
We’re all busy, I’m currently keeping up not just with the Kardashian’s, because really who has time? But I’m keeping track of a two and four year old, a husband, travel plans, meals I want to make, my hopes and dreams for the future and the stories I want to write. Since I’m up to my ears in lists and tasks, my hosting company gives me basic data on those who access my site. Data stored in this manner is not traceable back to any individual and is deliberately generalized, so no one knows that you don’t actually enjoy chocolate…the horror or that coffee puts you to sleep, true story…from a friend.
It provides me with information related to the country of origin of site visitors, what browser they are using, and how long they stayed on the site. If you want to read about what I use and if you’re still here it means you like to read. Or you think I’m funny and who wouldn’t agree. Here is a good article.
I’m also using Google Analytics to learn why you are visiting my site. (It’s because I’m cool and cute in a quirky way…right?) How did you get here? (Train, plane, but probably a search engine) Why are you here? (My witty sense of humor, steamy scenes, or food.) Do you like me? (I’m betting you do 😉 ) Scary, but Google knows these things. I figure, I might as well look at the information. It will help me write what you like and who doesn’t like it when someone does exactly what they want? (Hint: Nobody said, ever!)
Along with Google Analytics, I am using Google AdSense which may customize the ads you see on my site to things that might interest you and are relevant to what my site and blog posts are about. (I don’t know how they do it, but fingers crossed for lots of ads for sweet vacations, chocolate and get out of work passes.)
In addition, Google and other search engines track website visitors. This is something that happens whenever you use the internet. If you do not want to be tracked, because you are looking for stealth, please consider using a private browser window. The information that these search engines store is not traceable to one individual and is very generic in nature. I do not store this information, however I do occasionally look at it to see what people are searching for when they come to my site.
This helps me provide more relevant content.
Don’t want me to know? Consider using that private browser!

Changes to this Statement
Change happens to us all. I may occasionally update this privacy statement, like if I add a new plugin or feature that might also collect some data.
When I do, I will also revise the “last updated” date at the top of the privacy statement.
For material changes to this privacy statement, I will notify you by placing a prominent notice on the home page of my Web site.
I encourage you to periodically review this privacy statement to stay informed about how I am helping to protect the personal information I collect. Also, I might have actual cookies, but I will probably be eating them so you better be quick
Your continued use of the service constitutes your agreement to this privacy statement and any updates.
