It is my policy to respect your privacy regarding any information I may collect from you or which you may provide to me, in the circumstances set out below.
I will only collect and use your Personal Data where:
- I have lawful grounds to do so, including to comply with my legal obligations;
- I am performing a contract with you for my services; and
- I have legitimate interests in using your Personal Data and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests.
For the purposes of the EU General Data Protection Regulation ((EU) 2016/679) (“GDPR”), I, [Margarita Morris], am the “data controller”. If you have any questions about this policy or about how I use your Personal Data, please contact me via my contact details at the end of this policy.
Personal Data I collect via my website margaritamorris.com (the “Website”)
I only collect Personal Data where you choose to interact with me on the Website in the following ways:
When you sign up to join my mailing list (readers’ list), I collect:
- Email address
- First name
- Marketing preferences
I do not store your personal information. My list of email subscribers is managed on a third party site called MailChimp. I use a double opt-in sign-up process to add you to my Mailchimp list. MailChimp forms collect your email address, IP address, and add their own timestamp which serves as evidence that you have provided consent. I do not have access to the Distribution Lists of other MailChimp users and they do not have access to mine.
Use of your Personal Data
I will only use your Personal Data when the law allows me to. Most commonly, I use your Personal Data to:
- Email you about new releases, special promotions or blog posts, according to the marketing preferences you have selected.
Sharing of your Personal Data
I take your privacy seriously and will not share your Personal Data with others.
