Data Protection – GDPR


What is it?

The GDPR, among other things, requires companies and site owners to be transparent about how they collect, use and share personal data. It also gives individuals more access and more choice when it comes to how their own personal data is collected, used, and shared.

It’s important to understand that while the GDPR is an EU law, its requirements apply to all sites and online businesses who collect, store, and process personal data about residents of the EU.

You can read the full text of the law here. These resources are also helpful in understanding the principles and specific requirements of the law:


Personal statement/Policy

On my blog I do not collect, keep, process or share any personal data from readers and visitors to my blog.

This is a private blog for reasons of enjoyment and inspiration.

Visitors and readers are here through their own choice and follow through their own choice.

Please see additional page regarding this here.

  1. Phew…all those rules, we just want to blog, nothing more, nothing less 😀 Do you think we all have to make a statement, Ute? I hope not…MOL 😀 Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend to you and Thomas 🙂 ❤

    • I don’t know really, it is private so it should not affect us, but I did just in case. Everyone seems to panic here with policies etc. Have a lovely weekend Binky!

      • We just checked on it in our language, Ute and you did a great job on this. We now have to make a statement too, except when you turn of the comments, so no-one can comment on our blog or otherwise. This really …peeeeeps… Extra Pawkiss for you 🙂 ❤

    • Oh dear. More rules and regulations that no one really needs. Sigh. Ralph already put a disclaimer on his blog and I guess I’ll do it too then, to be safe. MOL! Right Binky! We just want to blog. I would have thought those rules go just for wordpress as a whole, not for each blogger. But reading that insane fine that they would charge you with, millions and millions of Euros LOL! So I guess it’s better to be safe, like you said Ute.

      I wonder if we have to put disclaimers on our Facebooks and Instagrams too MOL?!

      Thank you dear Ute for writing this up and letting us know about it. And I like how you wrote your statement! Hope you and Binky and Granny had a lovely weekend!

      Love, Natascha ❤

  2. OMG ! Another fear based money grabbing EU law following the EU Cookie Law. ie it says in one ofm your links……. The importance of preparing and ensuring compliance with the new law cannot be overstated, not least because of the huge fines of up to €20m or 4% of worldwide turnover that could be levied for breaches…… So, I’ve written a little something on my sidebar.
    Thanks for this warning post Ute 🙂 ❤

    • I know, blogs are private so it should not affect us , but everybody is talking about it, some make their blogs password protected , I don’t want to do that. As long as we are not sharing etc and state that we are covered. Just in case!

Love to hear from you......
