GDPR Privacy Statement

We take your privacy seriously at IDMi.

We are aware of the implications, rules, and benefits of GDPR.


Information We Hold
In 2019 IDMi celebrated 50 YEARS of 'Keeping You Informed' through various magazine titles following on from one another over the years, and sometimes, operating in parallel.


25th May 2018 saw the enforcement of the new GDPR act which supersedes the Data Protection Act.


Because of our historical legacy, we started gathering contact information in 1969. As the internet wasn't invented when the original issues of our forerunner title The Micrographics Newsletter were sent out in 1969, and as neither the UK's Data Protection Act, or the new GDPR were even a twinkle in the legislators eyes at that time, we only ever provided magazines or other collateral to those requesting it. An Opt In. This was not an electronic Opt In, but a manual written or telephone request.

Today, we only use electronic Opt In, and even then we only ever store contact name, address, and email address.




Our legacy data of contacts does go back to 1969, and is largely inactive legacy information and out of date.

We have deleted that historical data.
