With effect from the 25th May 2018 the new EU (European Union) GDPR regulation (General Data Protection Regulation) came into force.

 I do not fully understand this as everything I have searched for on the topic of GDPR leads me to information for businesses. I am not a business and do not promote or sell anything. I am just blogging about my hobbies and interests and showing my own artwork.

However, it would appear that EU laws require me to give EU visitors information about cookies used and data collected on my  blog.  

 Out of courtesy Google  have added a notice at the top of my blog to explain Google's use of certain Blogger and Google cookies, including use of Google Analytics and AdSense cookies, and other data collected by Google. see  How Google uses cookies
and also further information can be found here Policies on how Google uses information

I do not collect any personal information...  however some things will be visible on this blog to  visitors such as :
1) The  'Followers' button on the blog shows your icon and blogger name and when clicking on the icon may also show the blogs you follow . You can 'unfollow' using the 'unfollow' button option at anytime if you choose to.

2) When leaving a comment in the 'comment box', please note that  moderation is enabled so that what you write is not visible immediately and that when the comment is published  on my blog that your name and blog links may be visible to anybody who visit here and see your comment.
