your right to privacy

What changed with the GDPR? – In a nutshell, your rights to privacy are now more protected. You are legally entitled to ask for a report on how your personal information is being held and handled, as well as request updates to your details. Your data is now required to be securely stored and only held on record for as long as reasonable. You also have the right to ask for your details to be deleted.

GDPR is a positive step towards security and privacy for all of us. This means however, that any site using cookies—which is most—will now (again) ask for your permission, this time there is no assumed consent like we saw with the cookie law some years ago. We will see the fixed panels, pop-ups and similar appear again on sites across the web, this time driven specifically by legislation applying to all EU citizens.

your data is safe

When you visit this site, an analytics script will log your IP address (a number unique to your computer) and technical information, such as the device (desktop computer or mobile), operating system, browser and screensize. The purpose of collecting this data is to observe activity on this site and keep improving its structure and functionality for you all. It will only be used internally, exclusively by me for work on this very site.

opting out

With the new legislation in place, you could now request your data to be erased in any case.
