We Are GDPR Compliant – GDPR Policy
We are in compliance with GDPR and our email service provider(s) MailChimp are too.
The Right To Be Forgotten
The right to be forgotten is a GDPR mandate that allows subscribers to ask to delete all of the data associated with them.
You may unsubscribe from our emails at anytime, and request that we remove all of your information and data associated, and we will delete it in it’s entirety
Under GDPR, each of our subscribers in the EU has the right to erasure (or the right to be forgotten), meaning they can contact us and we, and our mail service provider will delete all of their personal data from all systems.
As well, an unsubscribe link is at the bottom of each email sent
Also in the bottom of our emails, we remind you why you are receiving this email, reminding you where you opted in to receive them in the first place.
Proof Of Subscriber Consent
When a subscriber opts-in to join our mailing list, they are given a double opt-in where they must confirm their subscription to join the list, and to receive the opt-in incentive.
Our MailChimp signup forms automatically create a proof of concent by capturing the IP address, location, date, time, and the source of the consent form. This information will solidify your documentation of where, when and at what time subscribers consented.
Identifying EU Citizens
ActiveCampaign provide a rule in the subscriber filter where we can sort our subscribers by location, to help us easily sort GDPR subscribers.
We are aware of the chance that a EU citizen could be living abroad in a non-EU country. In these cases, it is impossible to identify them as EU citizens. But we are compliant in our efforts to be within all GDPR laws, and to the best of our ability use the tools that are available to identify EU citizens.
Thus, we apply the GDPR compliance factors mentioned above to everyone on our list, no matter their citizenship.
Your Acceptance Of These Terms
