Privacy policy

mail server providersDB Recovery Resources takes the issue of safeguarding your privacy seriously across all its addiction-recovery tools:
the daily/weekly DB Recovery+ eNews
Recovery Plus print journal and e-mag and
annual DB Recovery+ UKESAD conference.

DB Recovery Resources welcomes the opportunity to remind readers that we work continuously on improving our services, including with regard to data protection. Due to new legal requirements resulting from General Data Protection Regulation alongside which runs the UK’s Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations, we want to give greater clarity on how we use your personal data for direct marketing purposes as well as the information we disseminate for the public good on addiction recovery.

A limited set of the information that you have provided to us (your name, edress and your fields of interest) will be used to inform you via email about the above offerings from DB Recovery Resources. This usually includes information for the public good on addiction recovery and information on our journals, conference reports and trainings, as well as updates on our databases and online platforms; your personal data will not be shared with any 3rd parties.

The use of your personal information is based on our “legitimate interest” in providing you with additional information and direct advertising about our services (under Article 6 sec. 1 sent. 1 lit. f, sec. 4 of the GDPR regulations).

You can let us know that you would prefer not to receive direct marketing by email at any time, simply by clicking on the Unsubscribe link provided in all our emails and in any other marketing email in the future. If you do so, we will not use your personal information for direct marketing purposes.

You can finesse what information you receive when you CLICK LINKS ON THE RIGHT.
