All that Eu Privacy Policy stuff

I don’t claim to totally understand it, I don’t sell anything thru the blog that I would be tracking personal information on, I don’t use affiliated companies that link ads that I get paid to use, but better safe than sorry and so I have added a privacy policy on the blog — being that I work in a law firm and try to keep things “legal”  — you will see a Privacy Policy in the top bar of the blog.    WordPress.com powers the blog and you can also find a link to their privacy statement within my privacy policy.

I’ve seen many blogs that have you accept the privacy policy re cookies.  Well hells bells I have no idea how to do that thru my blog set up in wordpress.com  so I’m going to deal with it the simplest way I know how.

The new policy goes in effect May 25 so between now and then I will be removing the “subscribers.”  Subscribers are the people who get my blog posts sent directly to their email.     You of course can (and I hope will) resubscribe and by doing so, that means you accept the privacy policy, etc.  Note that above the “sign yourself up” button on the top left of the blog (which is where you subscribe) I have added a blurb about agreeing to this as seen below.

I’m not sure if wordpress automatically generates an email to you when I remove the subscribers or not, but this is a heads up that if you normally receive blogs posts in your email, you will need to resubscribe in order to continue to do so.  Sorry about that but it only takes a minute to do.  If you don’t want cookies tracking, you can modify your own internet browser settings to turn them off.

So here’s the privacy policy which you can find in the link at the top of the blog.

  1. Thanks Denise, I’m from the Netherlands and read all your daily newsletters/blogs and love all youre craft and creative ideas, so I didn’t know if bloggers need also that privacy statement, but thank you to let us know about this.
    Lots off creative love Linda

    • I don’t truly know if blogs that don’t sell stuff or use affiliated selling links need to have them but I figure better safe than sorry.

  2. I put in my email, hit the “sign me up”, and it came back saying I’m already subscribed on this site. Not sure how to resubscribe, so hopefully that will do it.

    • The new policy goes in effect May 25 so between now and then I will be removing the “subscribers.”

      That’s because you tried to resubscribe before you had in fact been unsubscribed.
