Coton Connection, Issue #080 - Privacy policy update and a little break
May 25, 2018
Welcome Coton Lovers:

Privacy Policy Update

I hope you love reading these newsletters and want to stay connected with us. You may have heard that the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will take effect across Europe on May 25th. This is trickling down to all websites including those here in the US (even our teeny tiny Coton website) to make it clear how your info is used and how important your privacy is.

That's a good thing. And because of this, our Privacy Policy has been revised. You can read it here.

And I want to make it very clear that you can opt out of this newsletter at any time by hitting the unsubscribe button at the bottom of this email. Also, if you would like your personal data deleted from the Coton Meetup map at any time, contact me and let me know and your information will be deleted ASAP.

Thanks again for being part of this community.

Celebrations and Shoutouts

Happy Birthday Wishes:

Luc and I are moving next month! So there won't be a newsletter in June due to all usual moving busyness. But don't worry, we'll just celebrate June birthdays early along with all the May birthdays.
