What personal data do I collect?
When you subscribed to the VIP Readers group, I asked you for your name, so I know what to call you, and your email address, so I know where to send the newsletter. When you sign up, you will be asked to provide your explicit consent to receive email communications.
If you email me directly via the contact address of firstname.lastname@example.org, I will use your personal data only to respond to your question, comment or request and you will not be added to the subscriber list.
Certain information is automatically collected when you visit my website – such as the type of browser and operating system you are using, and the domain name of your Internet service provider. This serves a number of purposes, including helping to keep the website secure and to improve the website through analysis of information. I do not link this information with any Personal Data.
What do I do with your information?
I take your privacy very seriously and will only use your personal information to send you the newsletter emails containing updates, exclusive information and giveaways. I require this information to send you the newsletter. If you want to unsubscribe from my newsletter, you can do so at any time by clicking the link at the bottom of every email sent to you. Your personal information will never be shared with third parties for marketing purposes and will not be used by me for marketing purposes without your explicit consent.
How long do I keep your information for?
I will only keep your information for as long as you wish to remain a member of the VIP Readers group. Your personal information will be deleted if you wish to be removed from the list. You can email me at any time on email@example.com you wish to unsubscribe to the list.
Your rights over your information
In accordance with UK and European law under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), you have the following rights:
to see what Personal Data I hold about you (if any), including why I am holding it and who it could be disclosed to;
to ask me to change/correct your Personal Data;
to ask me to delete your Personal Data;
to object to the processing of your Personal Data;
to ask me to restrict the processing of your Personal Data;
to withdraw any consents you have given me to the processing of your Personal Data;
to express any concerns you have about third parties’ use of your Personal Data; and
to complain to a supervisory authority. If you consider that my processing of your personal information infringes data protection laws, you have a legal right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority responsible for data protection (in the UK this is the ICO). You can find out more about your rights under the GDPR here.
Should you wish to exercise any of these rights, please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org
