For clarity and ease of reference, this follows a widely used guide to GDPR compliance, which constitutes the questions that follow. Our actual policy is our answers to those questions.
Who is collecting the data?
We actually collect no data whatsoever from readers of our site. If we id, “we” would be Adam Smith, Esq., LLC, a New York limited liability corporation, but we don’t so we is a rather undefined concept.
What data is being collected?
By us: None. Zero. Nada.
What is the legal basis for processing the data?
We have not researched possible legal bases for data processing because we have no data to process, so we would have no idea what the legal basis might be for something we don’t do.
Will the data be shared with any third parties?
Although we don’t house or maintain any data ourselves, we obviously have access to the MailChimp data referred to above. As far as that goes, we do not and will not:
- share, rent, sell, lend, barter, assign, disclose, release, grant access to, etc.,etc.
- that data in any way, shape, or form,
- to anyone living or dead or yet to be born, not for love and not for money.
How will the information be used?
To send emails to all opted-in subscribers, who can also unsubscribe at will.
How long will the data be stored for?
Not sure; see the MailChimp policy, which like all such policies written by presumably competent counsel, is subject to change.
What rights does the data subject have?
How can the data subject raise a complaint?
We hope you have enjoyed this tour through GDPR compliance as much as we have, We’re feeling much better, thank you.
