It’s been a good opportunity to cancel quite a lot of them. Sometimes that’s had a tinge of sadness when my unsubscribing has been because the Emails were from London galleries and I have to face up to the fact that most of the things they are telling me they’re showing will come and go while I’m up in my mountain eyrie. Still, it’s been good to purge most of them.
I guess I’m putting this here just to make anyone who follows this blog enough to have left comments or signed up for alerts pretty well 100% certain to have been given a pointer to the small print. However, to illustrate things, I am adding a gull.
Now if you want, you can pull that jpeg file down, get the GPS data and work out exactly where s/he lives (if the sign in the background didn’t give it away anyway). Do gulls have personal data protection rights?
And that brings me to link to a blog post that Emily, PhD student and much valued colleague in Roehampton has put up about GDPR. She has caught the anxiety she and so many researchers have been through over GDPR and how it impinged research data collection. She’s also brought her usual gentle wit to things, much better than my feeble gulling!
