Our website address is: https://wavemaker.co.uk
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
I’m going to keep this simple and basic.
The most recent Wavemaker App does not store any of your novel information on our servers – it’s all under your control. Whether it’s stored locally using or in your personal Google Drive account.
The same applies for Version 2 of the app, but it required a google login
I only store user details for login purposes – It usually consists of your google ID (or Facebook ID and email address if you have provided one in version 1).
The Version1 CARDS app which I am planning on closing down in the near future does store your novel information. However you can download that and export it. I will be deleting the app soon but will send an email to active users with a warning in advance. This will delete all copies of that data….. forever.
Information we hold on you (only applies to the VERSION 2 Web App )
- Your Google ID
- Your Google Email
- Your Name
- Your Last login date to the app
- The Date you first used the app
Please Note : the current app stores NO data online and the rights and ownership of anything you create using our app is YOURS.

Who we share your data with
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
