Who We Are
Due to the GDPR change that came in on the 25th of May 2019, this page was created to show you how I use your data, what I do with it and why. It’s a legal requirement that I share this, so here it is.
What’s being collected?
For the newsletter, I use MailerLite to hold the details of your first name and email address securely.
For the website, if the blog comes back, you’ll be subscribed via an email address which the WordPress plugin will use to send you a notification
For a reading/consultation, I’ll usually need a name and a contact method (email or mobile) to send you a video chat link. I don’t use it after the reading.
I’ll keep the records for as long as I’m required to legally, which in the UK, is seven years.
Who is collecting it?
- MailerLite for the newsletter
- The WordPress database to send you blog notifications
- Me, so I can contact you to let the consultation can go ahead
How & why is it collected?
- By you filling in the forms via the website or giving it to me directly.
- MailerLite can’t send you my newsletter if it’s not on the list. I don’t do that unsolicited nonsense.
- I’ll need details to verify you’re over eighteen and sometimes I’ll want to do your birth cards, which requires a quick calculation on your birthdate.
- Your contact details so I can contact you at the time arranged.
How will it be used?
- MailerLite is GDPR compliant, so they’ll keep your details safe.
- Me: And only for the brief moment in time I need to contact you. I might check if you’ve received something via text, but after that, I won’t be in touch.
What’s the effect?
- Nothing, if it all stays secure! Which it ought to as I don’t contact people back unless they’ve reached out to me again.
- Just a double opt-in on the Newsletter (It’s a British thing)
Am I going to regret signing up?
If you do, it won’t be because of your details being scraped.
I don’t want to be on the mailing list anymore.
That’s okay! You can unsubscribe and if you want to sign back up, you can. It’s okay, I’m good with it, I promise.
