GDPR and ME

GDPR AND ME

In case you wonderful and faithful subscribers out there don’t know, something swooped down on us writers recently and shook some of us up with the force of an earthquake. I and several others spent a lot of time reading emails about it through our writing loop (ACFW), chased down links to get a better understanding of it, watched tutorials to follow the steps to come into compliance, and on and on. Sadly, many of us spent way too much time worrying about it.

 

GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation. It is a law that regulates the data protection and privacy of citizens in the European Union. I am convinced this new law may not apply to me today, but, yes, it may someday. I don’t sell anything on my website and I don’t send out a newsletter. However, I guess you could say I “collect data” because subscribers supply an email address to be notified when a new post is published on The Over 50 Writer blog and Patti’s Porch blog, and a new episode of Step Into the Light on Blog Talk Radio is broadcast.

 

I got very confused and lost in my attempt to comply with this new law. However, I have reached out to my webmaster and have been assured the necessary changes on the site will be made. They will essentially require my subscribers to re-subscribe with the option to receive only the content they wish to receive. For example, some subscribers may be interested only in notification about a new post on Patti’s Porch but don’t want notification of posts from The Over 50 Writer or a new Step Into the Light episode. Others may only want the Step Into the Light episode notifications and no information about the blogs Others may wish to receive email notification of all three.

 

The option to make these choices is not yet available on this website. When it does become available, I will send an email to each of my subscribers asking you to re-subscribe and designate your preferences.

 

Your email address is used only to send out notifications of blog posts and radio show episodes. It is also used to notify you if you win a book when a guest author offers a giveaway.

 

So, until I can provide more sophisticated information, this is my GDPR story.

 

Thank you for visiting my web site and may God bless you!
