Dear Noisily Followers
As of May 25th new laws are coming into effect to protect your data, called GDPR = General Data Protection Regulation.
This is a great new piece of legislation, as it protects you from spam emails cluttering up your inbox.
You are on our list because you’ve attended one of our events or past associated events such as Glade festival or Liquid record events. If you do not want to hear anything more from Noisily, please let us know now by unsubscribing now, or any time in the future – there is always a link at the bottom of every newsletter.
