Unless you've been living under a rock, on Mars or have possibly been abducted by The Polaroid Stalker, you will have no doubt heard about changes to Privacy and Data Protection in Europe called General Data Protection Regulation (or GDPR for short). The legislation in reality effects and improves the rights of everyone.

As you would expect, we have always respected your privacy and the processing of your personal data/information, and we will continue to do so. 

Our community software suite recently received additional functionality and tools to better facilitate compliance with the new GDPR legislation.

We have therefore recently made enhancements to our Privacy Policy, which take effect from May 26th, 2018.

Our Privacy policy increases transparency, explains our role and responsibilities in terms of storing, using and safeguarding your data. It explains what you can expect if you make contact with us and use our services. It also serves as an introduction to your rights under GDPR.

There are understandably lots of interpretations, wild claims and opinions on GDPR. However, we believe GDPR isn't about ruining your enjoyment of the internet, it's good news for all of us.

We manage an awesome website, we're open and transparent,  but we're not lawyers or GDPR experts. So for further information and better understanding, we highly recommend reading the guidance available at the ICO website, which you can find here.

We have also taken the opportunity to review and update our Guidelines.

Thank you for your time, understanding and for your continued use of our website.
