Privacy Policy - Use of Information

1. How I Use Your Data:
I will only use your Personal Data when the law allows me to. Therefore, I use your Personal Data:
• to respond to your questions, comments and requests;
• where you have opted-in to receive newsletters from me in the form of email, thus delivering communications that are relevant to your preferences / may be of interest to you

2. How Your Data is Stored/Shared
Your privacy is important to me. When you subscribe to my newsletter, your information (name and email address) is entered into the Mailchimp site and stored only by them. I don't store your information with the exception of you emailing me directly in correspondence. By your emailing me in this fashion, you are consenting to me having your information in my email server and responding to you. Any information received in this manner is never shared.
All information collected for the newsletter is done in a GDPR compliant method, whether you're in the EU or not. For MailChimp's most up to date privacy policy and how they store your information, please click this link:

​Specifically, "MailChimp participates in and has certified its compliance with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-U.S Privacy Shield Framework.

To learn more about the Privacy Shield Frameworks, and to view our certification, visit the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Privacy Shield website: A list of Privacy Shield participants is maintained by the Department of Commerce and is available at:"

3. Your Right To Control Your Personal Data
​As always, each email you receive from me will contain an opt-out link for you to unsubscribe at any time you choose. Additionally, the decision to stay on the subscriber list or opt out can be done at any point by emailing me at and let me know your decision. 

4. When you choose to follow this blog by entering your email address into Feedburner subscription box, you are agreeing to have each blog post sent to you via the email you entered.
