Thank you for visiting my website and taking an interest in my business.
Like most legal things, it is quite a long read. So you might want to make some tea and maybe grab a biscuit.
Browsing my website
It is possible to read all of my website content without giving your name or email address. If you want to subscribe to my mailing list to receive the newsletter, then I will have to process your personal data.
When somebody visits the website I use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet information such as your IP address, browser type, time zone and location, your operating system and your visitor behaviour patterns. These patterns cover what time you are looking at my website, how long you read it for and what pages you read.
This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. I do not make or allow Google Analytics to attempt to identify those people visiting our site.
When you ask to subscribe to the e-newsletter, as part of the registration process I collect personal information – your first name and your email address. I use that information to keep you informed about the things you’ve opted-in to know about. I will also check in with you every now and then to check you are happy to still receive stuff.
I don’t rent, sell or trade my email lists with any other organisations or businesses. Ever.
I use a third party provider, Mailchimp, to deliver the e-newsletter and your data is stored safely within my Mailchimp account on their secure servers.
You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of our emails or by emailing our Data Protection Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org
When you open my emails, I collect information via Mailchimp, to see which links you are clicking on. This helps me to monitor and improve the future newsletter content that I deliver to you.
Data Protection Officer
The Data Controller is Toni Horton and I can be contacted on 07801 698498 or by email at email@example.com
And in the real world, I am trying to wean myself off the other cookies.
Links to other websites
When writing blog posts and newsletters, I occasionally use links to other websites that I feel are both relevant to the content or enhance what I am offering to my subscribers.
Access to your personal information
Under GDPR, you are entitled to view, amend or delete any of the personal information that I hold. Just email your request to the Data Protection Officer, Toni Horton.
