GDPR and Me

I do not collect peoples’ data for marketing or other purposes and if I decide to in the future I will make it clear on this site that I am. I will abide by the new data protection law that came into force on 25 May 2018.

In the mean time I am aware that WordPress uses cookies. I do not know how this impacts on my website, but to comply with the law I am publishing these notes which I have copied from another WordPress blogger…..

This is a short post re: GDPR which comes into effect on May 25, 2018.
Any cookies on my website are used to ensure normal website functions. These cookies cannot be switched off because the website wouldn’t function properly without them. However, it is my understanding that these identifiers do not store any personal data.
When you leave a comment on this blog WordPress will automatically store your gravatar name, IP Address, comment, and email address. Therefore, leaving a comment is considered a definite intention, as defined by the GDPR giving me consent to store this information, and permission to contact you in the future.
But please rest assured that your personal information will not be sold or shared with any third parties under any circumstances. If you wish me to remove your data for any reason please get in touch.
If for whatever reason you do not consent to the above, please don’t leave a comment on my blog.
If necessary I might amend this policy in the future – I don’t currently have an email list – but I may do this at some point. Therefore don’t forget to pop back and check this page from time to time to see any changes that might have occurred.
