GDPR NOTICE: We do not currently offer any of our products/services within the EU, nor do we target visitors residing in member countries of the EU. Most of the products we write about are limited to the United States and Canada. As such, the below information is to assist in understanding our practices while operating within these non-EU countries. Any existing EU visitors from pre-GDPR campaigns and offers should no longer receive any marketing-related media of any kind. If you live in the EU and have recently received such media, please notify us immediately so that we can correct the error.
While The Senior List is an informational website and can be browsed from EU member countries, the content produced is targeted to the United States and Canada only.
Additionally, we have taken steps to ensure that the right to be forgotten – as well as other GDPR protections – exist for ALL USERS (including non-EU), so do not hesitate to contact us should you wish to view or update your customer data in any way, get more information on how we use it, or be removed altogether.
