Privacy Policy

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The GDPR is Europe’s new privacy regulation. It gives you control over the data that organizations have about you and how they market to you.

As the original permission marketers, our team takes this very seriously, and have to make very few changes to comply. This page outlines our approaches, and we welcome your feedback at alex@hrnews.co.

We apply strict policies and practices to protect all of our customers’ personal data, including those promoted by the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, E.U. Model Clause Principles and the APEC Privacy Principles. Many of those international standards will continue under the GDPR.

We will not rent or sell or share your email with any third party, and we never have. However, we use third party analytics software from Google or Facebook. In some cases, we may place a cookie on your side to enable us to better understand who is visiting our sites and how they use them.

We use cookies to enable you to have a better experience with our workshops and our content. We use those cookies to avoid showing you the same thing twice, for example.

We don’t serve ads to our site visitors using any third-party tools. When we run ads on Facebook, we may use audience data to serve you and people like you ads based on your visits to our sites. Facebook’s Data Policy provides much more information on how your Facebook data is used on their platform

At any time, you can opt out of hearing from us. You can always opt out of the collection and use of your information online. Check out these two resources to help you: YourAdChoices or Your Online Choices

Analytics

We may use third-party Service Providers to monitor and analyze the use of our Service.

  • Google Analytics

    Google Analytics is a web analytics service offered by Google that tracks and reports website traffic. Google uses the data collected to track and monitor the use of our Service. This data is shared with other Google services. Google may use the collected data to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network.

    You can opt-out of having made your activity on the Service available to Google Analytics by installing the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on. The add-on prevents the Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js, analytics.js, and dc.js) from sharing information with Google Analytics about visits activity.

    For more information on the privacy practices of Google, please visit the Google Privacy & Terms web page: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en

Links To Other Sites

Our Service may contain links to other sites that are not operated by us. If you click on a third party link, you will be directed to that third party’s site. We strongly advise you to review the Privacy Policy of every site you visit.

We have no control over and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites or services.

What is GDPR?

GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation, a new privacy law that regulates the processing of personal data relating to individuals in the European Union.

GDPR strengthens the rights that individuals have regarding their personal data, and seeks to unify data protection laws across Europe.

What does GDPR mean for you?

We’re treating everyone as if they lived in the EU. This means that if you’re reading this, you can:

  • Ask for a copy of the personal data we’ve collected about you. The answer is: Your email address.
  • Request that we stop sending you direct marketing messages. This is as easy as it has ever been. Unsubscribe/stop following, and we’ll stop. Our goal is simply to keep our promise, not to profit from your data.

We use Revue or Mailchimp to carry our email messages (and there’s an unsubscribe button in every email). Any texts can be stopped immediately via our text interface.

We’ll continue to educate, inform and work with our readers the best we can, and will update this page from time to time.

Thanks for engaging with us.
