New GDPR Regulation

Dear Sister,

In our effort to comply with the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) laws, we must let you know how we use your data. As you are our elder sister, we may contact you in the future to update you on all our trials and tribulations. Things like defaulting tenants and ISP servers going down, which probably means we will use your mobile phone number to scream at you via SMS. We might also post things to your Facebook timeline, tag you in our cat photos or send stickers to you in Messenger.

We assume you will still want to be signed up to all this. If you don’t, we will have to send you to complete an 88-page webform on the internet when we get it ready. That might take months.

Until then, we will send you regular invitations to shop for us, weed our garden and take us out for coffee.

Yours sincerely,

The CEO of Generally Messing About

  1. One unintended benefit to all these privacy notices: I closed probably a dozen accounts so old that I didn’t even remember opening them. I imagine quite a few sites have pruned their customer list.

    I have my blog, and I have an email address, and that’s pretty much all of my online presence. I don’t even shop online anymore. Somewhere along the way, the fun just went out of it for me.

    1. Yes, I unsubbed from one outfit yesterday which doesn’t email me very often anyway… I knew I’d never buy from them again, so there’s no need for them to email me at all.
