Good question? What is it all about? No doubt you are being inundated with emails about it. It seems it is something that so many of us have to do if we are dealing with people in the EU.
GDPR – what is it all about
Well, GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulations. The EU have brought this in to make sure that people’s information is protected. Also, so your private details, like name, email address, phone number, or address can’t be sold or passed onto others without your knowledge. You shouldn’t be signed up to a newsletter that you haven’t said yes too.
You can also request to see what information people have on you, and if you ask them to delete they are legally bound to do this. If not, then they face massive fines.
This really only applies to people in the EU, and residents. However, it is a fair bet that most countries around the world are going to adopt similar, so it seems like a good thing to just start treating everyone like they are in the EU.

The heading above is a link to the statement, though you can also find it in the pages section on the left, click the 3 lines above.
This is really important and you should read this. This will tell you how I gather information about some people, what I do with it, and how it is used.
The statement is so I am being transparent.
For those of you who are WordPress users, all this applies to you as well. I don’t have anything on people who already use WP except a web address.
Part of this is unsubscribing those from the EU and asking them to sign up again. I can’t do that, because I don’t know where you are in the world, not based on the information I have. However, if you no longer want to receive notifications of when this blog publishes new posts then you stop following it. Go the subscribe section and you should be able to do it there. If you have trouble, I should be able to help you.
Business side of it
It is all quite annoying, but it has to be done. Hopefully, I am compliant and can get on with things now.
If you have any questions, let me know, if I can help I will.
