Privacy Policy

I am told that if I use an email list to sell a product (like books), a service, or a program online or through my blog, the GDPR requires me to let you know how I use your data. (GDPR, General Data Protection Regulation, an EU law, pertains to those located in, doing business with, or making contact in the EU; it protects against spam and unwanted data sharing and went into effect May 25, 2018.)

For those who have signed up to receive my blog posts by email, please note: I do not use this email list to sell any product, service, or program online or through my blog. I do not use this email list to send you newsletters. (If you signed up to receive my blog posts by email, please note: Blog posts are not the same as newsletters.)

Just to be clear: If you signed up to receive my blog posts, Blogger uses your email addresses to send you my blog posts. If you wish to unsubscribe, click on “unsubscribe” at the bottom of the email.

I do not share email addresses with others. In fact, I don’t even know where to find your email addresses! (I’m just an old woman trying to keep things simple and legal.) Blogger sends my posts to those who have signed up to receive them.

The following notice has appeared on the inner workings of my blog for at least a couple of years, written by and posted there by Blogger:

“European Union Laws require you to give European Union visitors information about cookies used on your blog. In many cases these laws also require you to obtain consent.

“As a courtesy, we have added a notice on your blog to explain Google’s use of certain Blogger and Google cookies, including use of Google Analytics and AdSense cookies.

“You are responsible for confirming this notice actually works for you blog, and that it displays.” [end of Blogger notice]

FYI, I did confirm that this notice works and displays for my blog.

The following notice appeared March 22, 2018, on the Blogger Help Forum at this link: https://support.google.com/blogger/forum/AAAAY7oIW-wxgO0UefwfIE?hl=en

“…you can count on the fact that Google is committed to GDPR compliance across products, including Blogger. We are always working to stay compliant, which helps make compliance easier for your blog. We are also committed to providing robust privacy and security protection built into our services. We know security and privacy are important to you, and they are important to us, too. For Google, it’s a priority that your private information is safe. You can also find more information about privacy, data and security at privacy.google.com or by visiting Google’s Privacy Policy.” (Signed by Ricky – Community Specialist)


Just a reminder: If you don’t want to receive my blog posts by email, please click on “unsubscribe” at the bottom of the email you receive.
