New GDPR regulations. My Privacy Policy

You might well be one of my readers who has, for the last few weeks, been constantly bombarded with emails from companies etc regarding their stand point on the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and there is a lot of conflicting information out there on the internet. This new regulation starts tomorrow the 25th May 2018. Many of the GDPR’s main concepts and principles are much the same as those in the current Data Protection Act (DPA) but there is much confusion as to whether we, as Bloggers, have a duty to share a Privacy policy with you. In the interests of transparency and openness many of us are doing just that, including me.

The data held by Blogger is very limited, and I assure you I do not and never will use your data for anything but sending you notification of a new blogpost, or for clicking through to your blog for a return visit. As stated in the Privacy Policy, all Blogger blogs use cookies, and these can be disabled in your internet settings if you choose.

If you are a follower by email, you are of course entitled to unsubscribe at any time of your choosing by linking on the unsubscribe bottom of the Bumblebees and Butterflies email post you receive.

Over the course of time as and when I find out more information and become better informed about the expectations I will update my Privacy Policy which you can find HERE or by clicking on the Privacy Policy link in the header bar at the top of this page.

Thank you for being one of my followers and readers and part of my creative journey. I hope you will continue to pop in to see what new ideas and projects I have for you and hopefully to learn from the step by steps and tutorials I provide.
