The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes in to force on 25 May 2018. This site is fully compliant with its requirements.
The only personal information I collect is the names (pseudonyms are fine) and email addresses of individuals who have chosen to subscribe to the blog in order to receive the daily post by email. This information is stored by the email marketing service I use, Mailchimp, which is both GDPR compliant and annually confirms its compliance with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework.
I never use this information for any other purpose and never will. I have never shared this information with any other person or organisation and never will.
Under GDPR I am required to:
- Erase any personal information on request. Every post has an unsubscribe option so that you can remove yourself from the mailchimp database. You can also email me direct to request this.
- Comply with any request from you to let you see what data of yours I collect. You can email me direct to request this, although as stated, this is solely your name (if provided) and email address.
- Inform you of any breach of data. I have installed a specific plug-in to inform me in the unlikely event of any data breach. In which case, you will receive an email from me detailing the breach.
