>You will almost certainly have heard a lot about GDPR just lately.
>Although the way this list is run means that I can be confident that
>everyone who is subscribed to it has done so voluntarily (i.e. you have
>consented to receive the list's mail), I thought it would be a good
>to remind you of what data is kept as part of running the list, how
>data is treated and your rights in respect of it.
>Data that is held:
>We hold your email address (and potentially also your name, if you
>provided this along with your email address) so that the list software
>can send messages to you. This is necessary for you to receive messages
>from the list. The list administrators (Mel and Mike) are the only ones
>with access to the list of subscribed email addresses.
>Messages sent to the list are also archived and are accessible to the
>public. If you have posted to the list, we hold a copy of your
>posting(s) and make it accessible as part of the list archives. It is
>possible that such postings may contain further personal data that you
>The mailing list software that we use (Mailman, and prior to that
>Listproc), requires confirmation of your subscription to make sure that
>nobody can subscribe other people without their consent.
>If you wish to leave the list at any stage, you can email
>lois-bujold-request at lists.herald.co.uk with a subject line of
>"unsubscribe" from the email address from which you are subscribed. If
>your email address has changed since you originally subscribed, please
>email lois-bujold-owner at lists.herald.co.uk and tell us which address
>needs to be unsubscribed.
>What we do with your data:
>We hold your data only for the purpose of managing membership of the
>list and distributing and archiving posts sent to the list. We will not
>sell your data, and we will not distribute your data except for the
>purposes named above.
>Note that although the list itself is managed from a server based in
>European Economic Area, posts sent to the list and distributed to its
>members will be sent to list members who may be outside the EEA, and
>list archives are accessible worldwide.
>I would like my data removed from the archives:
>(Note that this is a manual process and will likely take some time.)
>Please email lois-bujold-owner at lists.herald.co.uk and specify which
>personal data you wish removed. In general we will look to preserve
>discussion threads so much as is possible by anonymising posts
>(including personal data within) rather than removing them altogether.
>Note, however, that messages you send to the list will have been
>distributed to all other members of the mailing list and we have no
>control over their choices with respect to those messages, i.e. whether
>they keep them or not.
>I have a question:
>Please mail lois-bujold-owner at lists.herald.co.uk.
>Thanks for your attention...
