Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is:


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with

If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

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 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.


Please carefully check colour/size/quantity before proceeding with order. No refunds can be given for order of incorrect products. Images of faulty products/quality issues may be required before a refund can be issued. Shipping dates subject to change based on manufacturer. No returns.

To report any issues or for queries, contact the email address below. Please allow up to 48 hours for a response.

Authors may withdraw their (accepted)submissions up to 48 hours before publication. Once published, we have exclusivity for six months, and then non-exclusivity indefinitely after that (in the event of works being included in a collected edition for example).

If the story is published elsewhere after six months, we will leave it at your own discretion whether or not you declare that it has been previously published with us.

Just to clarify with edits, these would just be line editing/cosmetic editing. We would not edit to change your story in any way and always keep the language written in the original variant (for example, we do not change American English to standard English).

In regards to promotional vouchers, these are issued at the discretion of Humour Me and the promotional offer may be withdrawn at any time.

For all successful submissions, a 30% discount voucher will be offered for use in the Humour Me online store. Each voucher will allow 5 separate uses in total and valid for 6 months from time of issue. The discount will be applicable to items only, not shipping costs.

For all rejected submissions (that follow submissions guidelines) a 10% discount voucher will be offered for use in the Humour Me online store. Each voucher will allow 3 separate uses in total and be valid for 6 months from time of issue. The discount will be applicable to items only, not shipping costs
