I need help from my EU readers

26 May 2018

Hello ladies and gentlemen of Europe. Privacy laws are in a state of change at the moment and as a blogger, European Union laws require me to give European Union visitors information about cookies used and data collected on my blog. 

I must display a cookie and privacy notice on my blog and Google emailed me saying they'd added one as a courtesy.  However, as I'm not in the EU I can't see it - it only shows in EU countries. If you're in the EU, I'd appreciate you commenting here to tell me if you see this notice, or not. Tell me what country you're in as well, that may help identify problem areas if it's not on display. Thanks to you all.

No more comments needed. Thanks everyone.

  6. We too have changes ahead. One recommends we back up our blogs as some could get lost during the change over.

  13. Yes, it´s up there for Swedish readers Rhonda. I´m so used to seeing this, I wouldn´t have reacted. We have had a long spell of Australian weather here. Temps up to 29C since 3 weeks back and more to come according to the forecast. Too hot for me so it´s early morning and late evening gardening for us right now.
    Have a lovely weekend
