2. European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (here after “GDPR”) replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and was designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens data privacy and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy.
The key articles of the GDPR, as well as information on its business impact, can be found on the dedicated site by clicking here (opens in new window).

Note that we may integrate to third party when processing your data (storage of email contacts MailChimp). Please refer to their Privacy Policies to ensure these meet your requirements.
3. GDPR Chapter 2: Principles
This chapter covers some basic things about the GDPR that you should know and that we need to adhere to. It covers terms like ‘Data Subject” (You) and ‘Controller” and “Processor” (Us).
3.1. Scope (GDPR Article 3)
The GDPR covers the protection of EU citizens regardless of where this data is stored or processed. Even a website on the other side of the planet, if it is intending to process data for EU citizens, must conform to the GDPR regulations.
3.2. Principles (GDPR Article 5)
In protecting EU citizens’ data the GDPR looks to the following principles regarding your data:
“Data is specified, explicit and legitimate”– (Art 5.1). When we ask you for your data we are required to tell you what it is for in terms that specify exactly what it is we need, why we need it and that when we explain this it is written out in clear and understandable terms.
The 5 main principles the GDPR sets out are as follows (all from Art 5.1 unless otherwise noted):
3.3. Lawfulness of Processing (GDPR Article 6)
This article essentially lays out that we have to ask you for your consent to process your data, that the processes we’re going to put that data through is relevant to our activity of providing the services we have for you and that there’s a real need for the data collection in order for us to proceed.
3.4. Conditions for Consent (GDPR Article 7)
This is one of the more important articles that you should be aware of. There are 3 main parts to it as follows :-
3.5. Conditions Applicable to Child’s Consent (GDPR Article 8)
There are very specific GDPR rules governing data capture for children. At this point and going forward we’re not going to ask for any data from children. As such this means that only adults, who can give their data willingly, will be allowed access to our site. The GDPR lays out that a child is “below the age of 16 years” – (Art 8.1). So you must be 16 years old or over to access our site.
3.6. Processing Special Categories (GDPR Article 9)
The “Special Categories” cover data which reveals any of the following (Art 9.1):-
We must have your consent before acquiring any of the above types of data. There’s exceptions to this but essentially we won’t be asking you for any of the above anyway.
4. GDPR Chapter 3: Your Rights (Rights of the Data Subject)
This chapter covers your rights under the GDPR. We’ll highlight the bits that we are required to and bits we think you should know
4.1. Transparent Information, Communication and Modalities (GDPR Article 12)
The GDPR allows you to request information about your data from us. It lays out regulations on what we are required to do when fulfilling this. Where you ask us we are required to provide:
So you can ask us what you need to know and we should reply in a fair and honest way without trying to dupe you with legalese.
4.2. Information to be Provided (GDPR Article 13)
Here’s what we need to tell you when we ask you directly for any of your information (All Art 13.1):
We are also required to tell you (all Art 13.2):
4.3. Right to Rectification (GDPR Article 16)
Where there are omissions in the data we hold you have the following two rights (Art 16.4):
We only hold details for as long as needed to process and return an answer to you. Should the exchange of emails constitute an ongoing conversation your details will remain with us until we consider the conversation over (or you tell us so). All data at that point is deleted
4.4. Right to be Forgotten (GDPR Article 17)
Article 17 calls this ‘Erasure”. You have the right to have your data removed from our systems. We can do this where:
If, prior to us processing your request, you wish to withdraw your consent simply let us know and your data will be immediately deleted.
4.5. Right to Restriction (GDPR Article 18)
We’ve covered some of this before but GDPR details more specific information here in Article 18. Under this article you have the right to request restriction of processing where:
We’ll store your data when you request us to restrict it (Art 18.2) and will tell you if this restriction is going to be lifted (Art 18.3) if restriction has been previously requested for legal reasons
4.6. Right to Object (GDPR Article 21)
There’s a couple of specific clauses in Article 21 we’re obliged to tell you about. Here they are:
