An owl and GDPR regs

I have another of the new LOTV watercoloured images to share with you today. I was in the mood for Autumnal colours for a change and used Nikki Sivil's tree love papers. The dies are Lawn Fawn stitched circle and MFT stitched leaves, the sentiment is LOTV. I was going to use some feathers but on looking in a box for them I came across a pack of skeleteon leaves which I must have had for about 10 years and haven't used for years so I added them instead.

So GDPR regs. I thought I would just add a bit again today as I have had a few people contacting me asking if they need to have a privacy policy and others asking if they can use mine. My initial thought when it was raised on Facebook was that it didn't apply to me. I don't sell on my blog but further reading and info from others who know more about it than me convinced me that all bloggers need a privacy policy. Mine is copied from some other policies, just tweaked to suit my style.  I am more than happy for anyone to copy mine or use it as a basis for theirs. You can find it on one of the pages at the top.  If you have people subscribing to your blog by email then you will need to contact them to gain their permission to continue and include something in your policy about it. I have never allowed email subscribers so haven't needed to do this.

Hi Marianne,

So kind of you to allow us to copy your GDPR text, I have been worried about what us bloggers need to do so thank you so much..

Love your owl card, these watercolour image are stunning, I think Making cards Magazine included some similar to these in their magazine a year or two ago and I loved playing with them.

Wonder if you could help, my reading list isn't showing all blogs when I click on it, just comes up with a particular blog and all it's posts. I've gone over to Help in blogger but can't find anything to help. I always turn to you as you seem to know about these techie things, any help would be appreciated... and if you have time, Kate x
