General Data Protection Regulation And Privacy Policy

May 26, 2018

Word Press blogs are accessible worldwide.  On May 25, 2018, a European law went into effect that is called General Data Protection Regulation, (GDPR).  It is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union and the European Economic Area.

To comply with this law, Word Press has provided a Cookies and Consent Banner to appear on blogs that they host.   You will see that banner on this blog beginning today.  You can read the Word Press Privacy Policy at this link.

Because some people are unfamiliar with IP addresses, I want to say a little about them.  An IP address traces to the Internet Service Provider, (ISP).  That is the company that connects you to the internet.  If there is an emergency, law enforcement can contact the ISP for account holder.  An IP address does not tell anyone your exact address, your name or other personal things.

This should not make anyone afraid to visit Word Press blogs, but rather, give them more confidence that Word Press respects our privacy.
