However, since I haven’t the faintest idea how to interpret legal jargon, I will tell you what I personally do with any e-mail addresses that I receive from readers of this website.
I do ask for your e-mail address if you would like personal feedback or a personal reply from me (only logical), if you would like to subscribe to a newsletter or any other offer which I may offer in the future or if you will be ordering a psychic reading from me or any other service which I may offer in the future.
So what do I do with e-mail addresses from readers?
Well, firstly, I will NOT be storing your email addresses in my computer address book.
I WILL be keeping email addresses from my Beloved Subscribers in the online mail service provided by my Mail Manager, Mail Chimp. So I suppose it depends on how much you trust in Mail Chimp to be secure and hacker-free. I obviously trust in them enormously or I wouldn't be using them, I understand that they most certainly make their best efforts to try to ensure that they will never be hacked.
My Mail Manager also automatically manages newsletters, automatic replies, vacation responses and mail-outs for me, so I need never look at the individual email addresses of people who subscribe to my publications or offers or who ask for automatic responses from me.
I do, obviously, look at the email addresses of people to whom I respond personally, but once again, I will not store your addresses in my computer. Your address will remain securely in my webhost mail service, which is what I will be using to reply to you.

Who We Are

Visitors may leave comments on the site. We are currently using the services of Disqus, a third party commenting service, but of course we do reserve the right to use other commenting programmes or services if we feel like it in the future.
We collect whatever data is collected and shown by Disqus when visitors leave comments. We personally don’t take note of any of the data that Disqus collects, in the sense that we don’t store it in our computer or anywhere else. But whatever data is collected by Disqus is there for everyone to see.
We do not disclose information about email or newsletter subscribers, clients or customers to any third parties, other companies or individuals. We will NEVER sell, share or even show your email address or other data or information with ANYONE. In fact, we very rarely even look at our email lists. We don't store the email lists in our computer, so you can be sure that no one else will ever acquire your email or other data or information from us.
You will be free to unsubscribe at any time, there is an "Unsubscribe" button at the bottom of every newsletter that we send out.
If you sign up to receive our Live Your Dreams Today Newsletter (which includes all the newest and latest articles), special, exclusive news or offers and updates via this website, your details are held at the Mail Manager service of our choice.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies by modifying your web browser; however, if you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the site.
A web beacon is a transparent image file used to monitor your journey around a single website or collection of sites. They are also referred to as web bugs and are commonly used by sites that hire third-party services to monitor traffic. They may be used in association with cookies to understand how visitors interact with the pages and content on the pages of a web site.
Browsers can be set to accept or reject cookies or notify you when a cookie is being sent. Privacy software can be used to override web beacons. Taking either of these actions should not cause a problem with our site, should you choose to do so.
Children's Online Privacy Protection Act
This website is directed to adults; it is not directed to children under the age of 16. We operate our site in compliance with the general data protection regulation (GDPR), and will not knowingly collect or use personal information from anyone under 16 years of age.
In some cases, we may collect information about you that is not personally identifiable. We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users' movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. The information collected is used solely for internal review and not shared with other organizations for commercial purposes.
Release of Information
If SeasOfMintaka.com is ever sold, the information we have obtained from you through your voluntary participation in our site may transfer to the new owner as a part of the sale in order that the service being provided to you may continue. In that event, you will receive notice through our website of that change in control and practices, and we will make reasonable efforts to ensure that the purchaser honours any opt-out requests you might make of us.
Embedded Content From Other Websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (eg. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
How Long We Retain Your Data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely (or as long as our Commenting services provider, Disqus, retains them, which I assume would be forever or at least as long as you hold an account at Disqus).
How You Can Correct or Remove Information
If you have signed up to our newsletter or made a purchase from our site, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase, modify or rectify any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
You may unsubscribe from our mailing list by using the "Unsubscribe" button located at the end of every newsletter that we send out, by using our Contact Me page or at our email listed below. Of course I wish that you will not unsubscribe, but in the case that you do anyway I hope you will use the unsubscribe button, because if you contact me then I will have to unsubscribe you myself, and I don't know how to do that. As mentioned earlier our Mail Manager is Mail Chimp, I don't keep a copy of my email list in my computer and I have no idea who is subscribed.
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
All personal (e.g. name, email address, postal address) and sensitive personal data (e.g. details of your current emotional state, health, relationships) shared with us by email, letter or consultations is stored and used in accordance with general data protection regulation (GDPR).
