GDPR – General Data Protection Regulation
The GDPR is Europe’s new privacy regulation. It gives you control over the data that organizations have about you and how they market to you.
As privacy advocates, our team takes this very seriously, and have to make very few changes to comply. This page outlines our approaches, and we welcome your feedback at firstname.lastname@example.org. (That’s me.)
We already apply strict policies and practices to protect all of our members’ personal data, including those promoted by the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, E.U. Model Clause Principles and the APEC Privacy Principles. Many of those international standards will continue under the GDPR.
We will not rent or sell your email with any third party, and we never have. However, in some cases, we may place a cookie on your side to enable us to better understand who is visiting our site and how they use them.
We don’t serve ads to our site visitors using any third-party tools. Actually, we don’t run any ads altogether.
At any time, you can opt out of hearing from us. You can always opt out of the collection and use of your information online. Just check our latest email and look for the unsubscibe button at the bottom.
What is GDPR?
GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation, a new privacy law that regulates the processing of personal data relating to individuals in the European Union.
GDPR strengthens the rights that individuals have regarding their personal data, and seeks to unify data protection laws across Europe.
What does GDPR mean for you?
We’re treating everyone as if they lived in the EU. This means that if you’re reading this, you can:
- Ask for a copy of the personal data we’ve collected about you — which is: Your email address.
- Request that we stop sending you emails. This is as easy as it has ever been. Unsubscribe/stop following, and we’ll stop. Our goal is simply to keep our promise, not to profit from your data.
We use Mailchimp to carry our email messages, and we’ll work with them in removing your name (and there’s an unsubscribe button in every email). Any texts can be stopped immediately via our text interface.
We’ll continue to educate, inform and work with our members the best we can, and will update this page from time to time.
Thanks for engaging with us.
