Whenever you accept to read, download content, and participate in e-courses in Borrowmybrain.eu, you might be asked to give your name and e-mail, to receive information on a regular basis.  These (newsletter) emails contain content on the latest marketing, communication, branding trends, as well as thought leadership, offers, newsletters, and invitations to events.  We will always ask you for permission to stay in touch and send you such content.
  • We inform users/visitors what do we do with their data. The General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), the new EU law, requires us to inform you what do we do with your personal data. Tasospagakis.com maintains personal data files that are sent by the visitor/user solely for communication and knowledge-sharing purposes.
