Copyright Statement

All material on DCSHEEHAN.COM is protected by copyright owned by Dominic Shaheen (which is my legal name in case you were wondering who the hell that is). Here is the copyright icon © to make it look extra legitimate but bottom line – the words on this site are my work and I control the use of them.

Feel free to link to the material on this site, I’m trying to drive book sales so I’m happy for links to be shared freely. If you’d like to reproduce anything in full on your own site or elsewhere then get in touch. So long as you give appropriate credit and a link to my site I’ll usually give you permission depending on the use and who you are. For example, if you are racist, homophobic, misogynistic, or transphobic I’ll say no. If you are any of those things I doubt you’ll want to link to my work anyway.

Please do not try to pass off any of my work as your own. I’ll find you. I know you think I’m joking but I’m not. Or am I? Just don’t steal my work, please. There will be consequences. LOL, I’m joking! LOL, I’m so not joking.

You may not use any logos, emblems, and trade marks on the website or the website’s design elements or any photography and imagery without express permission from the original copyright holder, which may not be me. 

In other words, don’t re-use icons. Or site design. As for the pictures, I’ve linked to the image owners where possible and most of them are free to use, but if you’re going to re-use them give those owners credit because they deserve it.

If you see your image on this site and it’s not properly credited then let me know and I’ll rectify that! Also, thanks for making your images free to re-use – it’s very much appreciated.

Privacy Policy

I collect the following personal information from you: your email address. That’s it. 

I don’t want your home address or phone number or even your name. I’d only use it to add to the top of emails so they’d say ‘Dear [Your Name] to make it look personal when, in fact, we both know it’s just an algorithm that’s dropped in there. Plus some people feel icky about giving away their name and I totally understand that feeling. 

I collect this information in order to send you emails and newsletters. I won’t use it for any reason other to stay in touch with you. I will not provide it to anyone else, not even if they torture me. I cannot be bribed or bought either. Not even with really good ice cream. 

Your information is kept on a secure server. Hidden in a volcano. Guarded by a dragon. In my books there are several types of dragons so it’s extra, extra guarded.

All my emails contain an unsubscribe option so if you’ve had enough of me, just opt-out. I won’t take is personally. You can always sign up again when you realise you missed me. 

You have the right to ask for a copy of any personal information I hold about you, and to ask for it to be corrected if you think it is wrong. 

If you’d like to ask for a copy of your information, or to have it corrected, please contact me.

And please don’t think me not asking for your name means you don’t matter. Exactly the opposite. You matter so much that I’m prepared to be honest enough to tell you I’m dispensing with that faux-algorithmic friendliness. Also honest enough to admit there is no orange naga. Everyone knows nagas come in every colour BUT orange!
