THE COLLECTION OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

Every time you log on to our website your IP (Internet Protocol) address is registered on our servers. Your IP address reveals no information other than the number assigned to you. This information is used to help manage web traffic, report errors and assist with security on our website, or (in case of criminal activity or misuse of our information) to cooperate with law enforcement. We do not use this technology to get any personal data against your knowledge or free will (i.e., automatically recording e-mail addresses of visitors).

Mailing List:

As part of the registration process for our newsletter, we collect personal information. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to tell you about things you’ve asked us to tell you about; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you're happy and satisfied. We don't rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses.

We use a third-party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our newsletter. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our newsletter.

For more information, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails or by emailing our administrator at:info@lynnetruss.com

General Correspondence: If you contact us, we may keep a record of our correspondence.

HOW WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

We will only collect and process personal data about you where we have lawful bases. Lawful bases include consent (where you have given consent) and Compliance with a legal obligation.

Where we rely on your consent to process personal data, you have the right to withdraw or decline your consent at any time.

DISCLOSURE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION TO THIRD PARTIES

We do not share any personal information we collect with any other organisations or individuals, except of course in the unusual event should we be required to do so by law.

HOW WE SECURE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

We use third-party security software to help secure our website against malicious activity and applicable technical measures such as encrypting transfers of data to or from our servers, via a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).

Whilst we take all reasonable precautions to protect any personal data users may input via this website we cannot be responsible for and therefore exclude all liability for loss or misuse of personal data which is intercepted or otherwise accessed by unauthorised persons.

To the extent you have provided us with your email address, we may notify you by email and you agree to our use of email as a means of such notification.

HOW LONG WE RETAIN YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

Whenever we collect or process your personal data, we’ll only keep it for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected, unless we are otherwise required to do so for legal reasons.

At the end of that retention period, your data will either be deleted completely or anonymised, for example by aggregation with other data so that it can be used in a non-identifiable way for statistical analysis and business planning.
