Gdpr - what?
I just read an article about the new EU regulations on websites.
My first thoughts were..."Dang, this is too confusing" and "How will this impact my own website which has barely even been started?".
Right away, I confess that when I go to a website, if one of those cookie bars pops up and tells me I can opt out of them collecting my information, my first response it to click whatever I need to, to keep my privacy as best I can. So, I click "no", or "opt-out" or whatever is appropriate.
If everyone is like me, how in the world are we ever going to make money with these websites? And how will our affiliate's websites handle this? Will all our cookies be lost in the process so we get no credit at all for any sales?
I did a quick search here in WA for GDPR and found a few articles with appropriate links to legal information about all this. But...what I'd really like to see is more people talking about this in more simple terms. It feels a little over my head to be honest, but I'm smart enough to realize I probably need to pay attention to it at some point.
My head hurts...
