Please read all of this important message. It concerns new legislation that comes in effect on May 25th this year.

It is a positive message and I have kept it as brief and to the point as I can whilst giving you all the information that is relevant.
I have a legal duty by 25th May this year to become compliant with the new GDPR legislation. See more detail at the General Data Protection Act page I wrote for students. GDPR gives you more rights and control over your data.
Please update your email preferences should wish to stop receiving emails from me. Opt out before May 25th this year you can avoid being moved to the new mailing list which will replace this one.
Why? I need to send this message to you now so that I can legally contact you after GDPR comes into effect. After the transition to GDPR is complete organisations and individuals will have to ask you, explicitly, to opt in the first time they collect your information.

In the past it was acceptable to add people to mailing lists by default if they hadn't explicitly said they did not want to be contacted. In other words people could assume you opted in. This change is therefore very good for all of us as individuals.

This email constitutes me offering you a 'soft opt in' option. The 'soft opt in' option is a good compromise for entities with mailing lists to keep their list intact whilst complying with the new GDPR legislation.

Why the new list? It's not a requirement for me to create a new list for GDPR purposes. It's been a personal aim to improve the mailing list preferences before GDPR was announced. It is now a good opportunity to make those changes. The new list will have clearer groups for you to configure your contact preferences with.

Warmest Regards
