General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – Oh No! Not another one!
Rest easy, my friend, you do not need to do anything.
The Reflectionary is not a commercial enterprise, so GDPR laws do not apply to us. “The rules don’t apply …[if] there is no connection to a professional or commercial activity.” So you are saved from yet another ‘please click here to give your consent’.
However, just so that you know, and so that we’re being ultra-transparent, here’s a quick run-down of how your personal data is kept safe by The Reflectionary.
You are seeing this notice because you have joined the mailing list on the blog website or you have ‘liked’ the Facebook or Twitter page. You can at any time remove yourself from any list in the normal manner. Please ask if you have any problem.
WordPress stores email addresses of subscribers, and Facebook / Twitter keep a list of followers. These are used to send you the blog posts that you have asked for. They will never, ever, ever be sold to third parties. Really. I hate spam as much as you do.
Some blog posts may tell you about new books from the Reflectionary, or be reviews of books or other resources that you might find useful. Such posts may contain link to places where you can purchase those resources, but The Reflectionary does not sell anything.
If you’re still happy to hear from The Reflectionary, to receive free resources, including the lovely Richard’s ‘Look See Pray’ posts (also available on his own blog) you don’t need to do anything. You can update your preferences or unsubscribe at any time by managing your ‘follows’ on Facebook /Twitter or clicking the link at the bottom of any email.
There, that’s done. Now we can get back to real life.
