Hello! Heard about the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that kicks off May 25th 2018?
Whether you’re in the EU or not, this is really good stuff in terms of privacy in a world online.
That’s me up there – Divya Marie Kato 🙂
I write newsletters to family, friends old and new and students of my When In Doubt, Draw drawing programme.
I write these letters to share art courses, drawing classes, events, projects, paintings and inspiring Art For Hope stories.
Most of you receive my letters by opting in to receive my free beginner guide to drawing via my website.
I’m happy to be in touch with you and respect your privacy. I want you to be happy too!
I treat your privacy as I do my own.
I use MailChimp to send out my newsletters. You can read their commitment to GDPR and privacy updates here
If you’d like to continue hearing from me, or if you’d like to use this opportunity to view and update your information, please take a minute to update your subscription settings over here via my newsletter addressing this issue. Click on the big, blue button that says I Want To Update My Settings!
I want to be as transparent as possible, so if anything is at all unclear below, know you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
To a safer online world!
