With the introduction of the GDRP in the EU it seemed like a good time to update my Private Policy. You can find it here.
Also, I have cancelled my previous email newsletter subscription service. I was getting a lot of spam subscribers (why??) and I wasn’t confident it was GDRP compliant.
I have now signed up with Mail Chimp. As far as I could tell, the only way to get a GDRP compliant form onto the blog was via a popup. I am NOT a fan of popups. I hope I have alleviated some of the annoyance of it by setting (I think!) it to pop up after 20 seconds and not immediately. And, I’m told by Mail Chimp that once the pop up is seen, it won’t be seen again for at least a year if the visitor accepts/keeps the cookie which will be loaded after it pops up. If Mail Chimp offers a GDRP compliant option that is not a pop up in the future, I’ll switch to that.
If you would like to get blog posts from me in your inbox, please subscribe to the new service. You can unsubscribe at any time.
If you dismiss the popup and don’t see it again and decide you would like to subscribe after all, you can either delete the cookies and reload the site or contact me with specific permission about signing up and I can sign you up manually.
I’m sorry for any bother or annoyance but privacy is important and so it complying with the law!
