Joe Seager is a "data controller". This means that I am responsible for deciding how I hold and use personal information about you. I am required under data protection law to notify you of the information contained in this notice so you are fully aware of how and why I am using your data.
Personal data, or personal information, means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data).
I may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of information about you including:

Please note that I may process your personal information without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.

I have put in place measures to protect the security of your information. Please contact me if you require further details.
