Privacy Policy

David Grayson: Sole Trader

I am committed to protecting and respecting your privacy.

This Policy explains when and why I collect personal information about people who sign up to my newsletter, or contact me via e-mail, how I use it and how I keep it secure.

I may need to change this Policy from time to time so please check this page occasionally to ensure that you’re happy with any changes. By remaining as subscribers to my newsletter, or contacting me via email, you’re agreeing to be bound by this Policy.

Any questions regarding this Policy and our privacy practices should be sent by email to david@davidgrayson.net

How do I collect information from you?

I obtain information about you when you register to receive my occasional e-newsletter. I only use that information to tell you about stuff you’ve asked me to tell you. I don’t rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses.

I use a third-party provider, Campaign Monitor, to deliver the newsletter. I gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help monitor and improve the e-newsletter. For more information, please see Campaign Monitor’s privacy notice. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of the E-news emails or by emailing david@davidgrayson.net

What type of information is collected from you?

If you sign up to the newsletter, I collect your email address so that I can deliver the updates to your inbox. We may also collect some or all of your name, phone number, job title, company name, website address, so that we can provide you with updates that are relevant to the interest you have expressed.

If you contact me for other purposes, I may keep a record of that correspondence. If you send me personal information which identifies you via email, I may keep your email and email address. I may also keep CVs or other information about yourself that you have provided for specific purposes.

How is your information used?

Your data will only be used for the purposes indicated when you submit the data or as detailed under this privacy policy.

I may use your information to:

I will review retention periods for personal information periodically. I may be legally required to hold some types of information to fulfil statutory obligations. I will hold your personal information on my systems for only as long as is necessary for the relevant activity.

Who has access to your information?

All the personal data is processed in the UK. I will not sell or rent your information to third parties. I will not share your information with third parties for marketing purposes.

If I use third party service providers, I disclose only the personal information that is necessary to deliver the service and have a contract in place that requires them to keep your information secure and not to use it for their own direct marketing purposes. Please be reassured that I will not release your information to third parties unless you have requested us to do so, or I am required to do so by law, for example, by a court order or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime.

Your choices

You have a choice about whether or not you wish to receive information from me. If you do not want to receive my newsletter or updates, you can unsubscribe via the link on the email or choose not to sign up initially. You can also contact David@DavidGrayson.net

Your rights

You have the right to withdraw consent to the processing of your personal data. You also have the right:

How you can access and update your information

The accuracy of your information is important to me. If any of your details change or any other information I hold is inaccurate or out of date, or you wish to exercise your rights, please contact David@DavidGrayson.net


You have the right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office (the “ICO”) which can be accessed via https://ico.org.uk/concerns/ or their helpline on 0303 123 1113.

Security precautions in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of your information

When you give me personal information, I take steps to ensure that it’s treated securely. Non-sensitive details (your e-mail address etc.) are transmitted normally over the internet, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

As a result, while I strive to protect your personal information, I cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to me, and you do so at your own risk. Once I receive your information, I make best effort to ensure its security on my systems.
