Effective date: 28th September 2022
This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of personal data when you use my website and the choices you have associated with that data. I use your data to provide and improve the website. By using the website, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy.
What Personal Data I Collect And Why I Collect It
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.

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 email me at any time and ask me to completely ‘forget’ any information Mailerlite holds in connection with you.
Who I Share Your Data With And How I Protect It
Data collected is used only by me, or by people working with me. It will never be sold or used for any other purpose. I protect your data with secure passwords, regularly changed.
How Long I Retain Your Data For
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so I can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
If you have given me your email address by subscribing to my mailing list, I will keep you on this list until you ask to be removed. You will be removed instantly, and never resubscribed unless you ask to be.
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.
Your Data Protection Rights under General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)Rights
If you are a resident of the European Economic Area (EEA), you have certain data protection rights. I aim to take reasonable steps to allow you to correct, amend, delete, or limit the use of your Personal Data. If you wish to be informed what Personal Data I hold about you and if you want it to be removed from our systems, please contact me.
In certain circumstances, you have the following data protection rights:
The right to access, update or to delete the information I have on you.
The right of rectification. You have the right to have your information rectified if that information is inaccurate or incomplete.
