GDPR STATEMENT OF COMPLIANCE
I have read the Information Commissioner’s Office guidelines for compliance with the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) rules. This document that follows explains how I comply. If you have given me your email address (by emailing me, buying something from my website or subscribing to my website, for example) you should read this to reassure yourself that I am looking after your data extremely responsibly. I value the security of your information extremely highly and will never intentionally breach the rules. However, the rules are designed for organisations and most authors are sole traders just doing our best to keep up.
I am a sole trader so there is no one else in my organisation to make aware.
The information I hold:
Email addresses of people who have emailed me and to whom I have replied.
I do not share this information with anyone.
Communicating privacy information:
I have put this document on my website, with a link on every page.
On request, I will delete data.
Data Protection by Design and Data Protection Impact Assessments
I have familiarised myself with the ICO’s code of practice on Privacy Impact Assessments as well as the latest guidance from the Article 29 Working Party, and believe that I am using best practice.
