It’s important to understand that while the GDPR is a European regulation, its requirements apply to all sites and online businesses that collect, store, and process personal data about EU residents no matter where the business is located.

    Okay, I’m good with this.

    Have a great day. ♥

      Thanks. It took a while for me to figure this out. A message popped up in the Dashboard portion of ThusNSuch along with instructions on how to comply. In the meantime, I noticed a Privacy Policy on other sites and thought it a good idea for my sites.

    I feel less ignorant because it took YOU a bit to figure it out. 🙂 Things have gone a bit bonkers since Microsoft and Google were “exposed” on 60 Minutes. Quite Frankly, I expected a MUCH harder hit on Google from 60 Minutes than they received. #major disappointment.

      I didn’t see the 60 Minutes show but Google and some of the other tech giants seem to think they can continue to operate unfettered.

      I’ve recently seen a slew of my social media sites pop out new privacy policy statements, which I scan them briefly and move on. Then I noticed a few of those I follow sending an email regarding the GDPR compliance. Soon after, the WP suggestion that I establish a privacy policy (including instructions) popped up in the Dashboard my blog ThusNSuch.

      Their wording was confusing and portions seemed to be more applicable to a blog that sells products and services, which mine does not.

      I combined some the suggested wording and the wording used by another blogger because this stuff has to make sense to me before I publish it.

      Since ThusNSuch is on WPs Business Plan, that’s probably the reason for the WP pop up.

        The 60 Minutes episode turned out to be a DUD. Leslie Stahl, one who knows no Fear, waster a ten minute interview. And anyone who has actually tried to Communicate with Google as I have knows the Frustration of trying in Vain to find a phone number. I finally found one by going through the “Press Office” and after charming a Secretary I was able to get my problem partially solved…..but it took HOURS of my Time. By comparison, I can call Apple 🍎 and in less than 15 minutes I can have a small Country overthrown or the largest problem on Earth fixed.

        I gave up Facebook long ago and have ONE post on Instagram…..Social Media needs a total Transformation…..and a Mandatory IQ Test should be given before anyone is allowed to post. 🙂 🍎

        I agree with you about social media. It definitely needs an overhaul.
