With regard to including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that went into effect on May 25, 2018 in the European Union, nothing is changing about your access to Washington Photo Safari's website or receiving the WPS newsletter due to these regulations. 

The GDPR regulates the “processing,” which includes the collection, storage, transfer or use, of personal data about EU individuals. Any organization that processes personal data of EU individuals, including tracking their online activities, is within the scope of the law, regardless of whether the organization has a physical presence in the EU. Under the GDPR, the concept of “personal data” is very broad and covers any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual (also called a “data subject”). An identifiable person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as – name, email address or location, and also online identifiers like IP address, types of website cookies and other device identifiers.

Additional information about the GDPR is available on the official GDPR website of the EU <https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection_en>

WPS will do its best to ensure that it complies with the GDPR.  We maintain limited data about our customers, and how it is managed is outlined as part of our Privacy Principles below.
