    GDPR New Privacy Policy.

    You will be getting the first part as an email, but in accordance with the changing laws I have to make you all aware of all of this... If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me.

    GDPR Regulations

    Please note you need to act soon!

    With the new changes in the regulations I am bound to ask you to agree (or disagree) to the way that collects, stores, uses and deletes your information.

    To make this easier for everyone I am asking you to LOG IN to your account to AGREE to the new privacy policy.

    If you do NOT log in to show you agree then your account will be hard deleted at any point after the cut off date of 25th May 2018.

    A complete new privacy policy can be found on the forum:
