About This Website
Effective From May23rd 2018
I am Susan Weeks, and this is my website for my digital technology training & mentor services.
This website address is https://virtualitytworks.com
I am a podcast producer (via https://podcastprogress.com) and digital marketing trainer and mentor. I am also a podcast host with Stitchery Stories podcast.
I provide this website to provide information about my professional services.
What Personal Data I Collect And Why I Collect It
Free Opt-in Offer “Tech Tips & Training”
I provide information around digital technology, tools, and apps.
When you signup for my email opt-in offer, you will receive the presentation ‘Cool Tools To Organise Yourself, Delight Your Clients & Attract Your Audience”.
You will be asked to provide your first name and your email address – that’s all.
Under GDPR terminology I am providing this free presentation (and videos of when I have made them 🙂 and I am processing your name and email address under the processing reason of Legitimate Interest. It is very clear what is being offered to you on the signup page, and in the follow up emails with related resources and information that you will receive from me, and when.
You can of course Unsubscribe from those emails whenever you want, there is always an Unsubscribe button at the bottom of every email.
My Contact Form
The contact form on this website sends the information you input, to me, via email.
I will use the email address you have provided me to reply to you and answer your questions.
I use CONSENT as the legal basis for processing that email – in fact using IMPLIED CONSENT because you have given me your email address so I can communicate with you regarding whatever it is that you entered into the contact form.
The contact form will add you onto my contacts list, but you are NOT added into any email marketing lists or processes.
You will NOT be marketed to.
I will follow up on your enquiry, but that is all. OK? 🙂
After 2 months if you have not turned into a client, then your contact details will be deleted from my contacts list.
I switched those off years ago ‘cos I was sick of the pathetic spam comments.
If you would like to make a comment about a blog post, or ask questions about one, then please use my Contact form, and we can have a proper chat about it. 🙂
When You Become A Client
When you become a client then as part of our ‘Onboarding’ processes I will be collecting and processing personal data – in paper notes and in electronic form.
When we have finished working together, then I destroy any paperwork and delete emails and entries from my password manager tool and remove myself from any other systems, tools, accounts and apps that I was using on your behalf. I will retain your contact details and may occasionally follow up to see how you are, what’s new in your world and if you need any help with anything, or if you could refer me.
I don’t actually do much with cookies, it’s all very straightforward.
This website only collects cookies from some very common website analytics software called Google Analytics. Most websites use Google Analytics. We have been using it for years.
This helps me to understand how my website visitors use my website, such as how you found it, where you came from, how long you visited, what you did while you visited. All this information is jumbled up together and made anonymous, to give me trends and statistics about how my visitors use this website. In no way can you be identified by any of those cookies.
Social Media Sharing Cookies
Another place where cookies are set is when you click on Social Sharing buttons. They log you into your social media accounts and then those accounts set cookies. It is not my site doing that, but your social media accounts.
Embedded Content From Other Websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
I am not responsible for what happens on other websites. Links were correct and working as intended when I first used them. BUT this IS the internet and things change over time, as well all know. So, if something doesn’t work then please let me know and I will fix or remove it.
Well Done – You Got To The End
More than likely you will just ignore all this stuff that we have to do these days, and just go and do something more useful instead.
But at least I have tried to do a ‘proper job’ and put this in place.
I think I fancy a nice glass of wine after all this GDPR stuff – don’t you? ?
