You may also consent to have your data used in order to receive information such as my newsletter, if available.
Except where you have consented to my use of your information for a specific purpose, I do not use your information in any way that would identify you personally.
I continue to process your information on this basis until you withdraw your consent, or it can be reasonably assumed that your consent no longer exists.
