Purpose of Policy
Information We Collect
In operating the Site, we collect personal information from you in three situations. The first is if you sign up to receive a free cheat sheet, PDF, course, ebook or video, at which time we collect your e-mail address and name. The second is if you should contact us via the “Contact” page. In doing so, you will be asked to provide us with your name and e-mail address. The third is if you leave a comment on a blog post. In doing so, you may be asked for your name and other information. You are not required to provide us with information via these three methods to use and enjoy the site.
YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AND DATA PROTECTION UNDER THE "GDPR"

As a controller, we have certain obligations under the GDPR when collecting, storing and using the personal information of individuals based in the EEA. If you are an individual located in the EEA, your personal data will:
- Be processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner by us;
- Only be collected for the specific purposes we have identified in the ‘collection and use of personal information’ clause above and personal information will not be further processed in a manner that is incompatible with the purposes we have identified;
- Be collected in a way that is adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purpose for which the personal information is processed;
- Be kept up to date, where it is possible and within our control to do so (please let us know if you would like us to correct any of your personal information);
- Be kept in a form which permits us to identify you, but only for so long as necessary for the purposes for which the personal data was collected;
- Be processed securely and in a way that protects against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage.
If you believe we have breached the rights above, and wish to make a complaint please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and provide us with full details of this alleged breach. We will promptly investigate your complaint and respond to you, in writing, setting out the outcome of our investigation and the steps we will take to deal with your complaint.
We have the following measures in place, in accordance with the GDPR:
- Data protection policies: We have internal policies in place which set out where and how we collect personal information, how it is stored and where it goes after we get it, in order to protect your personal information.
- Right to ask us to erase your personal information: You may ask us to erase personal information we hold about you.
- Right to ask us to restrict data processing: You may ask us to limit the processing of your personal information where you believe that the personal information we hold about you is wrong (to give us enough time to verify if the information needs to be changed), or where processing data is unlawful and you request us to restrict the processing of personal information rather than it being erased.
