UnitedMind is keen to comply with the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) which is in place from 25 May 2018, and we are currently assessing all our data handling processes.
Please be assured that we are following the guidelines for complying. ICO 12 Steps for Preparing for GDPR
UnitedMind have requested all our registered contacts to kindly complete our subscription form in order to consent to receiving our news and allow for us to store your information.
We do not store data in spreadsheets, this is a thing of the past and all spreadsheets holding information including name, email, address and phone numbers have been or will be deleted permanently from our data storage no later than 25 May 2018.
As of 25 May 2018 information will be kept in two places only, online on MailChimp which is our choice of solution for our newsletter and general information distribution, and with a backup on a password protected hard drive.
MailChimp writes the following about their compliance:
What is MailChimp doing to prepare?
We’ve been researching the GDPR and modifying many of our internal practices and policies over the last year, because we are committed to achieving compliance with the GDPR in 2018. For example, we’re in the process of updating our Data Processing Agreement and third-party vendor contracts to meet the GDPR’s requirements.
We’re also assessing the impact of the GDPR on MailChimp’s tools to see if we can make them more practical for users who are subject to the GDPR.
As further guidance is released and our research progresses, we’ll continue to look for ways we can help our users around the world get ready for the GDPR.
