New Data Proctection Laws – GDPR


You may or may not know about the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in Europe, adopted in 2016, which will be directly applicable, starting on May 25, 2018. GDPR comes with significant changes compared to the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and will involve operational changes in organisations.

As a holder of this database, we have to comply with new rules.

So what does this mean to us and you as a reader and/or a contributor to The Waterhole? Obviously, we want to continue as we have over the years, receiving articles and points of interest from Botswana. Then compiling this information into this newsletter and sending to everyone on our current database. Unfortunately, to continue to do so we need your consent.

We will be sending an opt-in request email in the next few weeks to meet with the new compliance. With the reassurance that data is never shared with any third party and only used for the purposes of distribution of The Waterhole.

Thank you in advance for your understanding and we hope you want to keep receiving all the latest from our friends in Botswana.
