GDPR Update - May 2018
Your privacy is very important to me and I take great care to ensure that I am treating your privacy with the respect it (and you) deserve. General Data Privacy Regulations (GDPR) come into force for EU citizens on 25 May 2018.
The systems used to run the website have been evaluated and any not found to be compliant with the GDPR requirements have been updated to ensure that they are compliant.
Please be aware that most of the changes will be 'transparent' to the website visitor, i.e. they occur 'behind the scenes' - e.g. anonomising cookies, etc. Also, please be aware that there are different ways of complying - so for example just because you don't see a "check box" (tick-box) when signing up to receive an email doesn't mean the website is not compliant. I have chosen to take 'user experience' into account which will give you a better experience whilst still remaining compliant.
The below policy has been updated to take into account GDPR and to protect your personal and private data. Please contact me if you have any questions.
The information we may collect from (or about) you…
The website systems collect information from you when you register on our site, place an order, subscribe to our newsletter, respond to a survey or fill out a form. The minimum required information is collected, e.g. Name and email for the receipt of an e-book or email subscription.

Note: If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, we include detailed unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each email. Unsubscribe options also exist for all other forms of communication we use (e.g. text message updates, web notifications, etc). All forms of communication are provided by responsible companies that are known to take legal compliance very seriously.
• To administer a contest, promotion, survey or other site feature
• To promote my products and services, e.g. testimonials, for which specific consent for each occasion will be sought
How do we protect your information?
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you submit a request, place an order or access your personal information.
These security measures include: password protected directories and databases to safeguard your information, SSL (Secure Sockets Layered) technology to ensure that your information is fully encrypted and sent across the Internet securely or PCI Scanning to actively protect our servers from hackers and other vulnerabilities. As technology evolves, we keep these services updated as necessary.
We offer the use of a secure server. All supplied sensitive/credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our Payment gateway providers database only to be accessible by those authorized with special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential.
After a transaction, your private information (credit cards, social security numbers, financials, etc.) will not be stored on our servers. The www.rosetodd.com website does not retain any information associated with payment transactions.

Do we disclose any information to outside parties?
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information in accordance with the legal requirements that apply. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others’ rights, property, or safety. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
Third party links
Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third party products or services on our website. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.
We are committed to keeping your e-mail address confidential. We do not sell, rent, or lease our subscription lists to third parties, and we will not provide your personal information to any third party individual, government agency, or company at any time unless compelled to do so by law.
I will maintain the information you send via e-mail in accordance with applicable laws.
E-mail CAN-SPAM Compliance
In compliance with the CAN-SPAM Act, all e-mail sent from our organization will clearly state who the e-mail is from and provide clear information on how to contact the sender. In addition, all e-mail messages will also contain concise information on how to remove yourself from our mailing list so that you receive no further e-mail communication from us.
Our site provides users the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications from us by reading the unsubscribe instructions located at the bottom of any e-mail you receive from us. This can be conducted at anytime.
Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter or promotional materials may opt-out of receiving these communications by clicking on the unsubscribe link in the e-mail or e-mail us.
We have no wish to keep sending you communications if you do not wish to receive them. It is for this reason, that all major communication channels have automated systems in place to recognise when you are no longer responding to the communications we are sending. For example, if you haven't opened an email for a predetermined time (for example 60 days) then you will be prompted to 'unsubscribe' - if you fail to either open an email or manually unsubscribe, you will be automatically unsubscribed if we believe that you are no longer interested in receiving communications from me.
Online Ads Choice/Opt-Out
For more information on online ads and tracking and the method to opt out from these services please visit the site aboutads.info.
Once you have unsubscribed (or discontinued communication via other means) we will carry out periodic purges of our records to remove your data. Any data which is retained will be treated to make it anonymous, such that your personal data is not stored once you have indicated that you no longer wish to continue hearing from me.
You may write to me at any time to request that your data is erased. I will write back to you within 30 days to let you know that all of your data has been purged from any record systems we use to operated the website.
