The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect on 25 May 2018. The data protection law states that we are allowed to use personal information only if we have a proper reason to do so, and that we must have one or more of these reasons:

  1. To fulfil a contract we have with you, or
  2. When it is our legal duty, or
  3. When it is in our legitimate interest, or

Our legitimate interests:

  • Keeping our records up to date, working and informing ourselves on what our readers or customers are interested in seeing from our products or services
