There is new Legislation for Data Protection called the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). It is extremely comprehensive, and is still a work-in-process for the Legislators. It comes into force on 25th May 2018.
Our Privacy is extremely important to each of us, especially in the context of this high Tech world of Information that we now live in.
Personally, I am taking steps to become fully GDPR compliant. Currently I do not offer a newsletter subscription.
