General Data Protection Regulation

If you are a natural person residing in the European Union then the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR) grants you certain rights concerning your personal data.

You have the right to only receive information from us if you have given specific consent to receive such information. At any time, you may choose to discontinue receiving information from us.

Windhorse Legal collects data for the specific, explicit, and legitimate purpose of sending you requested information concerning our programs, news items, and fundraisers. Any and all data that we collect is limited to the data necessary for those purposes and is reasonably required to enter into a contract with you.
