I am a small blogger with no attorney, or IT knowledge and no staff to help decipher the "legalese" of all of this.
I do not knowingly have cookies on my blog.
Chocolate chip or any other...
(I've got to throw in a little humor with all this, sorry)
...with the exception of my affiliate program participation.
Which allows me to support this blog and explore new things to share with you.
There is more information on this, below.

Communications are impossible if you are a no-reply blogger.
If you leave a comment and don't hear back from me, it's because I do not have
email addresses to contact you. You can always add it to the comment.
I suggest you post it on the lines of this...

That format makes it harder for robots to pick up and use.
Sad that this needs to be done but you did what appears to be a good job of it. Everything you said is understandable non legalese. I'll still follow you.ReplyDelete
Your the best!Delete
This is all so crazy. I'll still follow you too.ReplyDelete
Awww...right back at you! ;-)Delete
Should we resort to smoke signals.ReplyDelete
And i will have the chocolate chip cookies, please.
You have to, I'd miss you too much. I'm turning the oven on right now! LOL!Delete
I haven't done this yet. Does everyone with a blog need to do itReplyDelete
Honestly, I am not sure. The more I read online, the more confused I am. I'm playing it safe!Delete
I laughed out loud...I almost added "I eat cookies" on my policy. I'm with you, I'd rather just post this so I can move on to sewing.ReplyDelete
Well I plan to continue to follow you even if you don't supply me chocolate chip cookies but I won't argue if you do. I haven't posted any privacy rule blurb on my blog. Now you make me wonder if I should. My blog is my personal adventures and quilting.ReplyDelete
This GDPR is such a pain for everyone and very few (including me) understand how it will affect us and our "private" blogs. Does blogspot still notify you of comments via email and can you reply via email or only as a response on your blog? I know that unless I get an email, I don't know about comments nor do I go back to see if the blogger has answered my comment on their blog. Sigh, oh bother.ReplyDelete
Like someone else said, "If you don't want your stuff shared, then stay off the internet!" Just so ridiculous to me!ReplyDelete
I also value you and do hope that this change with GDPR will not change you sweet bloggers. Thank you for writing such a fun, informative blog. I look forward to more and more of the same. bull tulip 69 at gmail dot com (no spaces)ReplyDelete
