IMPORTANT: Compliance with GDPR Regulation

Dear Friend,

I know you have been bombarded lately with these notices but everyone, including me, is trying to be compliant with the new EU rules on privacy. Bottom line, you will need to give me permission if you’d like to continue receiving my blog, newsletters, giveaway offers, emails, and all correspondence from me.

If you are subscribed to my blog, Matters of the Heart, via Networked Blogs or any other venue, please contact Networked Blogs or your subscription venue and notify them that you wish to continue receiving my emails. Unless you do so, you will be removed from my mailing list. You may have already received a notice from Networked Blogs or your RSS feed regarding updating your subscription. If so, please respond if you wish to continue receiving my blog posts. Again, if you do not respond, you will be removed from my mailing list. 

If you subscribed to my monthly Author Newsletter through MailChimp, you should have received a notice whereby you submitted your approval to remain subscribed to MailChimp.  

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) goes into effect May 25 and requires me to obtain your explicit consent to send you my emails, newsletters, announcements, giveaway offers, and any other information. I apologize for the inconvenience, and I trust you understand my need to do this in order to continue to minister to you. 

Even if you are in the United States or non-EU countries, I need you to opt-in since I have no way of knowing where an email address originates. Sadly, if I don’t hear from you, your email address will be deleted and you will no longer receive my newsletters or other information. 

To recap: To continue receiving my blog posts, you will need to notify Networked Blogs, your RSS feed or other subscription venue  by May 24th. To continue receiving my monthly Author Newsletter, you will need to respond to the request from MailChimp to stay subscribed. If you do not do so, your name will be removed from my mailing lists. 

You will notice that I have added my PRIVACY POLICY on each page of my website. 

Thank you very much for your kind cooperation. I deeply appreciate it. If you have any questions, please let me know.

Many Blessings,

MaryAnn Diorio
