As you may know, new data protection laws are coming into force in the UK and across the EU on 25th May. The so-called GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) will set new rules for how charities, businesses and other organisations use and store your personal data.
This means that if you would like to continue receiving newsletters and email alerts from us, you need to 'opt-in' by CLICKING ON THE BANNER AT THE TOP OF THIS PAGE and filling in a simple form. YOU NEED TO DO THIS, EVEN IF YOU HAVE BEEN RECEIVING NEWSLETTERS AND EMAIL ALERTS FROM US FOR YEARS. We're rebuilding our database from scratch to ensure that it is 100% GDPR compliant, so please click on the banner now and re-register.
Don't be fooled by the lull in activity in Ryedale after Third Energy's ignominious retreat from KM8 earlier in the year. The threat of fracking is real and present - and is now spreading beyond Ryedale and into other areas of North Yorkshire, particularly in the form of petrochemicals giant INEOS, who are looking to conduct seismic surveys between Malton and York.
To take on this expanding threat, Frack Free Ryedale are joining forces with the good people of Frack Free North Yorkshire (FFNY) to provide wider coverage of fracking-related issues across the whole of North Yorkshire in future newsletters and email alerts. Anyone who was on the FFNY database is therefore also invited to sign up to our new database by clicking on the banner at the top of the page.
Frack Free Ryedale have helped keep Ryedale and North Yorkshire frack free for the last four years through the combined efforts of hundreds of concerned local residents, farmers, businesses and landowners. Help us stop fracking forever by joining our mailing list today. Together we can stop fracking - but we can only do it together.
Please read the text on the left, then click on the banner above to join our new mailing list. To find out more about why we are doing this, click here.
