Personal information and data
I may use your Personal Information to contact you with newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information that may be of interest to you. You may opt out of receiving any, or all, of these communications from me by following the unsubscribe link or instructions provided in any email I send.
I only collect information I know I will genuinely use, and I collect it in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This information is likely to include your name and email address. It may also include responses given in surveys, and data collected from newsletter activity (such as whether you have opened it, or clicked a link contained in it). This information helps me understand what my readers like, and enables me to send more relevant communications.
When visitors leave comments on the site I collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name and email address 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.
I may also collect data via Google Analytics, which gathers visitor behaviour, such as which pages you visit, how long you spend on my site, how you arrived here, and what links you click. This information isn’t connected to any personally identifiable data, but helps me understand which bits of my website work, and which could be improved.
In summary, the data collected may be used for the following purposes:
– To provide and maintain my Website
– To notify you about changes to my Website
– To allow you to participate in interactive features of my Website when you choose to do so
– To gather analysis or valuable information so that I can improve my Website
– To monitor the usage of my Website
– To detect, prevent and address technical issues
– To provide you with news, special offers and general information through my newsletter
Do I share your data?
Data collected is used only by me, or by people working with me. It will never be sold or used for any other purpose. Your data is held securely.
Under certain circumstances, I may be required to disclose your Personal Information if required to do so by law or in response to valid requests by public authorities (e.g. a court or a government agency).
What rights you have over your data
If you have left comments on my website, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data I hold about you, including any data you have provided to me. You can also request that I erase any personal data I hold about you.
You can unsubscribe from my newsletter via the ‘Unsubscribe’ link at the bottom of every newsletter. You can also change your preferences using the link at the bottom of every newsletter. You can also write to me at any time and ask me to completely ‘forget’ any information Mailerlite holds in connection with you.
