The GDPR bit

This website and this journalist respects the privacy of website users.

James Harrington is based in France and uses and retains information for business and professional purposes in line with that country’s data protection regulations.

So you know, I may in future make use of Google Analytics. Google Analytics generates statistical and other information by using cookies on users’ computers. Google stores this information. Google’s privacy policy is available here.

Personal information

I will only use personal information, such as your email address, to:

  • Provide specifically requested information (answer your emails, or contact you with pitches for articles or when otherwise necessary)
  • carry out legitimate business that may include consultancy and advisory services, education, training and preparing information with a view to publication.

Consent
Consent is sought wherever and whenever possible and required. However, some information may be held for journalistic purposes where consent is not required.

Disclosures
I will only disclose personal information where I am required to do so by law.

Information security
I take reasonable technical and organisational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of personal data, but – obviously – I cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the internet.

Data protection policy amendments
I may update this policy from time to time by posting revisions on this page. Feel free to check here occasionally for any changes – but it probably won’t get any more interesting.

User rights
Users may request copies of personal information I hold, subject to:

  • providing appropriate evidence of identity – such as a copy of the photo pages of a passport certified by a solicitor or bank, plus a copy of a recent (utility) bill showing your current address.
  • Please note, I may withhold information within legal limits.

By emailing me or contacting me via this site, you authorise me – and me alone – to retain such personal information within the scope of current legislation.

Other websites
I accept no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of other websites.

Updating information
Please email me if any personal or business information needs correcting or updating.
