I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information.

personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
- Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change,
restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information

- Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about
my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
