Privacy Policy

Last updated: November 25, 2022

Please read this policy to understand what data I'm collecting and how I use it in accordance with the data protection laws (also known as GDPR) of the European Union.


Who am I?

My name is Laszlo Vad, and I am the sole proprietor of the laszlovad.com website. You can reach me at hello@laszlovad.com or by physical mail at 1088 Budapest Vas u. 7. as. 2., Hungary.

What personal data am I collecting?

If you subscribe to my newsletter, I collect and store your email address so I can send you the emails.

What other, non-personal data do I track?

How do I protect your personal data?

I store your email address in TinyLetter—a newsletter software developed and maintained by Mailchimp, which itself is an Intuit company. Mailchimp is a respected company in the field that applies numerous security measures to keep your data safe. You can read more about their practices here.

As for myself, I am the only one with access to the TinyLetter dashboard, and I keep my login details in a secure password manager. I also rotate my password in a set interval.

Do I share your data with third parties?

Apart from TinyLetter, no.

I won't sell or trade your personal information with anyone.

As mentioned above, I use TinyLetter to manage my email subscriber list and to send emails to my subscribers. TinyLetter is a third-party provider, which may process your data using industry standard technologies to help me monitor and improve my newsletter.

TinyLetter's privacy policy is available at https://www.intuit.com/privacy/statement/.

You can unsubscribe from my newsletter by clicking on the unsubscribe link provided at the end of each newsletter.

I also use Cloudflare Web Analytics, but I'm not sharing any personal information with them and they don't collect anything personally identifiable on their own.

How can you control your information?

You have a right to access the data I hold about you, request changes to it, or delete it altogether.

You can unsubscribe from the newsletter anytime by using the unsubscribe link in the footer. You can also email me at hello@laszlovad.com and request that I delete you from the subscriber list. I'll do so in 30 days.

Bottom line: if you want to exercise your rights over your data, shoot me an email and I'll help you.

How long do I keep your data?

As long as you're a subscriber of my newsletter.

How will I notify you if this policy changes?

I'll send you an email and give you an opportunity to review the revised policy before you choose to continue using my site and/or my newsletter.

What happens if there's a data breach?

TinyLetter is required by law to notify me in 48 hours if anything should happen to their operation. In turn, I'll notify you by email within 72 hours (from the moment I became aware) or make a public announcement.

I'll also alert the proper authorities. In my case, this is the Hungarian National Authority for Data Protection and Freedom of Information.

Where can you reach me if you have any questions about this privacy policy?

Via email at hello@laszlovad.com.
