GDPR information

Your privacy, and GDPR compliance, are important. BelEdit Consulting has done all we can to ensure that this site is safe to use and that any data you knowingly or unknowingly provide is safe. Continuing to use this site implies acceptance of the terms on this page.

Impartiality is not an affiliated website. I receive no compensation for reviewing or otherwise promoting books or authors.

However, as an active book blogger, I do regularly receive free books from publishers. I am not obliged to review the books I receive and receiving free books in no way affects which books I review, which links I provide or the content of my reviews or articles. All my reviews are my own original work, and completely honest and unbiased. I review books because I enjoy doing so, not for commercial benefit.


BelEdit Consulting websites do not carry ads and so no information whatsoever is shared with any advertisers.
