General Data Protection Compliance Statement

The Compliant Team Behind Notes from the Slushpile Present
Our Obligatory GDPR Statement

Dear Readers

You may well have been experiencing an inundation of GDPR emails from blogs / services / newsletters you subscribe to. Sorry. This is another one.

Not again! Why oh why?
For your own good. The new (European) General Data Protection Regulation, which comes into effect on the 25th of May 2018 is designed to put you in control of the information that companies hold about you whether you like it or not.

But you're just a bunch of authors!
Precisely. But we do have to collect your information to send you email alerts when we blog (which is becoming more and more infrequent from some bestselling members of our team ... ahem ... Teri).

What does one need to know?
• You need to know that when you sign up for alerts, the information is collected in a database on MailChimp.

• You need to know that we are actually too disorganised to sell your data to anybody else, nor would we do so because who would want to go to jail?

• You need to know that we use your data to send you email alerts. You also need to know that we have occasionally mentioned to each other that we really ought to alert our readers about our upcoming books ... but we never really get round to it, so you're safe from that sort of spam.

• When you email us via our contact form or individually, your information is automatically saved into our various inboxes.

So how do I control the data if you're keeping it?
Simples! Because you signed up via Mailchimp, you can easily unsubscribe from our database using the unsubscribe link on every email.

If you email any of the Slushpile team, and really, really, don't trust us to keep your data safe, please indicate on your email if you wish your email address deleted from our inbox contacts lists. We'll try not to weep.

Thank you for reading all the way to the end of the email.

Compliantly yours,

Candy Gourlay, Addy Farmer, Teri Terry, Jo Wyton, Kathryn Evans, Nick Cross, Maureen Lynas and Paula Harrison
