As most of you will know, new data protection laws will come into operation on 25/5/18. Your data stored in my online shop has never been shared, and will never be shared EXCEPT for those who have subscribed to the newsletter, and for delivery information sent to any delivery service used, when your email address and/or telephone number may be required.
To date news letters have been sent out via the MailChimp platform, which always offers an unsubscribe link on emails. The email addresses of customers who subscribed to newsletters in the shop have been shared with MailChimp, which has always been trusted and reliable platform. I am removing ALL email addresses hitherto sent to that platform immediately, so that I can start afresh ready for when the new law comes into operation. HOWEVER, some people who unsubscribed from the mail chimp newsletters previously received (by clicking the 'unsubscribe' link at the bottom of the newsletters) have not changed their preferences in the shop itself. I have removed many of these, but there are almost certainly still some remaining who have unsubscribed by the newsletter, but not changed their preferences directly in the shop.
IF YOU ARE A REGISTERED CUSTOMER, would you pease check your preferences on the newsletter tab. If you do not wish to receive any newsletters, please disable the newsletter tab as soon as possible. If you would like to continue to receive newsletters (and I don't send these out very often, so customers are not bombarded with newsletters) please make sure you have the newsletter tab enabled.
I will send out a newsletter reminder to all those who still have the tab enabled later in the month, before the new law come into operation on 25th May, reminding people to unsubscribe if they no longer wish to receive emails. I will endeavour to update any unsubscriptions manual myself in the shop for anyone who unsubscribes to that specific email, but it would be really helpful if you could do it yourself in the shop a.s.a.p. Anyone who disables the newsletter tab in the shop will definitely not receive any more newsletters, but if the newsletter tab in the shop is enabled, you will receive this l last newsletter which I will send out shortly before 25/5/18.
TO CHECK YOUR PREFERENCES, just log into the shop, go to your account personal information and check or uncheck the newsletter tab.
If you think you may be registered but have forgotten your login email address, please contact me and I may be able to find it for you. If you've just forgotten your password, then just click the 'forgotten password' link and you will be able to reset your password. If all else fails, please message me. I will respond as quickly as I can.
