The Fine art of GDPRing a Privacy Policy

Last Update: May 23, 2018

Okeydokey folks, I have just titivated my Privacy Policy to suit (I hope) these confounded changes. It's probably a great idea I did that anyway as I noted quite a few other changes necessary.

In the confusion of getting this page done at the beginning of bootcamp I neglected to change certain words. Words such as going from we to I, our to my etc. After all I am not a two person website nor a company. Well I used Kyle's template, changed all that and modified it to suit me. (Oh and my site.)

I also on the advice of others who posted here gone to google A and left the 26 week retention as is.

To help out any people that haven't done the page changes yet, here is mine to give you a helping guide. So I hope it helps you.

By the way, please let me know if I stuffed up anywhere!

How do we make this "no-follow" these days?
The buttons below the edit page aren't there any more.

You didn't accidentally close up the SEO section did you. Where it says SEO go to the right where it says help. There is a drop down arrow beside that.

You're welcome. I did a lot of this political psycho babble when I worked. I cut out so much rubbish and never got pulled up on it.
