What information is being collected?
Who is collecting it?
Me, Squarespace, Google and Mailchimp (all of which have their own GDPR compliant guidelines)
How is it collected?
When you click to comment or sign up for posts via email, you will be asked for your email address and first name.
Why is it being collected?
So we can keep in touch! Not for selling or trading of any kind with any third parties. If you wish to acquire my services as a copywriter, editor or graphic designer, I will likely ask for more information.
How will it be used?
To keep me apprised of website performance and metrics, who is viewing my site and how often, and what content gets the most page views and/or shares.
Who will it be shared with?
Me! And Squarespace, which hosts this blog; Google, which tracks google analytics and performance; and Mailchimp, which is my email list provider.
What will be the effect of this on the individuals concerned?
No effect, other than you sharing your name and email with me and our ability to stay in touch. You can opt out at any time via the contact form, clear (or choose not to track) your cookies, or unsubscribe from posts via email.
Is the intended use likely to cause individuals to object or complain?
No, I intent this only for fun, community and a peek into our life overseas. If anything, my children will be the ones complaining. :)
