Wow has anyone ever actually read one of these?
We have to have one of these dealios to explain how we comply with the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), the DPA (Data Protection Act) and the PECR (Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations) because God knows there’s not enough actual interesting things in the world to read, you need to read 1,000 words of legalese nonsense that makes literally not one bit of difference to anyone, ever.
Also we don’t really know what these things are. We’re just two under-heighted writers who thought we’d have a laugh and get other people writing with us.
Short words (written by short people)
So. Here we go…
I’m a tiny, super busy business and I don’t have the time or energy to do anything nefarious with your data. It’s not that I’m not evil – we’re as corruptible as anyone – we’re just too tired to think up a malevolent plot to steal your identity.
I collect and store the info I need to provide you with the service you buy from me. We occasionally stalk you via Facebook or Instagram adverts. That’s really it.
STALKY VISITOR TRACKING
Look, I’m following you, ok? I use Google Analytics, primarily to stare at the real time stats because they’re cool but also to see what stuff people looking at so I can write and create more of the stuff you like.
We also have the Facebook Pixel installed so that we can sell you stuff. Yes you heard it. I’m a business and – shocker – we want you to spend money with us. The Facebook Pixel means that I can see how people interact with our site and with Facebook adverts and then we try to flog you relevant stuff. If you’ve not seen the Facebook Ads analytics dashboard MAN ALIVE it’s stalker central. That shit is a terrifying Black Mirror horror show. If you’re not on Facebook – well bloody done but the pixel is tracking you anyway.
Don’t know if there’s a specific Facebook Pixel blocking thing but we accidentally discovered that if you use Freedom app to block social media while you’re writing it also blocks the FB pixel. Handy hints!
None of these things store any super personal data about you but probably they nab your IP address, not that we’d know where to look for it or what to do with it. All we see is that a person or many people have interacted with the website in a particular way. You can mess with us by doing something totally unexpected on the website and skewing our stats. Or you could do something way more fun and useful with your time.
DATA!! It’s all about the data, baby. A literal huge-tonne of petabytes whirring around the world and what? What’s it all for? WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN? What will future historians actually see of us and our slowly collapsing society? So. We store your data in a few different places and use it in a couple of different ways. You ready for this?
Here on this website! If you register with the site we will store your name and email address. If you buy stuff from us we will store your name, email address, postal address, phone number if you give it to us, and purchase history. Your payment details ARE NOT held on the site. We obviously go to the maximum effort to keep this data secure and only two of us ever have access to it. Only one of them ever actually looks at it and that’s to solve any technical problems you might have.
We’ll be honest: we do absolutely nothing unsurprising or radical with your info. We use your purchase history to target you with ads for stuff you might like. For e.g. if you buy a course, we’ll occasionally ask you if you want another course. Does that make us EvilMegaCorp? Idk, it’s fairly standard isn’t it?
ConvertKit! If you’ve signed up for anything or bought anything on our site – newsletter, free course, paid course, membership, merch, anything – your name and email address also wangs its way over to Convertkit, which is the system we use to manage our newsletters and emails. They are (allegedly) GDPR compliant. You can unsubscribe from emails at any time by hitting the unsubscribe button.
Teachable and Leandash! All our courses run on a learning management system called Teachable and / LearnDash. It’s rad. When you sign up for a course, your name, email address and the course you want to take is flung over to Teachable where it sits there and lets you access your course. Teachable and LearnDash are (allegedly) GDPR compliant.
YOUR PAYMENT DETAILS
When you buy stuff, you will either pay through Stripe or PayPal. The only payment-based details we hold on our site is how much you’ve spent and whether you paid with Stripe or PayPal. We have no bank or card details or nada here. Stripe is GDPR compliant. PayPal is being totally weird about it but will have to be GDPR compliant or everyone in Europe will have to stop using it and probably they don’t want that.
EMAIL MARKETING THINGIES AND NEWSLETTERS
If you sign up to our newsletter, we will send you a newsletter – generally around two a month, but occasionally more if there is more interesting stuff to tell you. You can unsubscribe at any time by clicking the unsubscribe button in every email. Your name and email address are stored securely in Convertkit.
If you sign up for a course, we will send you emails about the course. The frequency of which depends on the course. You can unsubscribe but you’ll miss important stuff about the course.
Convertkit automatically adds tracking things to links so if you click on a link I KNOW. If you open an email I KNOW. If you ignore me reminding you to be true to yourself I KNOW.
The most important thing about this is I have neither the time nor inclination to actually look at or do anything with these stats.
YOUR RIGHT TO BE DELETED
FINE LEAVE I DON’T CARE. If you want to go undercover, just chuck us an email at (hello @ rebeccaanuwen. com) and I’ll delete all the info we have on you from our systems while having a passive aggressive huff about what we could have possibly done wrong.
This does not include PayPal and Stripe. If you want to delete your PayPal or Stripe accounts you have to do that yourself via PayPal or Stripe. I cannot delete your purchase history because the taxman will be terribly upset.
Just so you know, though, you won’t be able to access our courses anymore. I’m not being funny, it’s because we need your email address so we know you’ve paid and that you’re allowed to access it.
SOCIAL MEDIA AND ALL THAT JAZZ
I use social media a lot, partly to promote our courses and products but mostly as a vehicle for my creativity and love of nature. If you talk to me in our Facebook group and we become familiar with you, I might find you on Twitter and say hello. You can ask me to be less friendly if you wish and I will of course respect your boundaries.
You are not required to follow my social media accounts and I won’t ask our employees to temper themselves in the service of us. If they turn out to be racist, bigoted dipshits then I wanna know so I can tell them to go to hell.
