European Union laws (GDPR) require me to give European Union visitors information about cookies used and data collected on my blog. In many cases, these laws also require me to obtain consent.
I am a hobby blogger. As such, I do not see or collect or retain any personal visitor information, such as email addresses.
In accessing my blog, you are accessing through the Blogger.com platform. Blogger has placed a notice on my blog as a courtesy in order 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. I do not subscribe to Google Analytics.
Please take a few moments to read this information.
I do not collect data for marketing and analysis purposes etc. I do not collect email addresses through give-aways and competitions. Thus I do not hold any of your personal information but like other websites on this platform, mine will collect page view data which is automatically generated by Blogger, e.g. location by country only, web browsers i.e. IP addresses, type of browser (Safari, Silk etc) and operating systems (Windows etc) etc. A blogger tool allows for limited analysis based on that information only and thus is produced on a totally anonymous basis.
Third party links
I have elected not to add my posts transparently through to Instagram or Twitter (although I have used the latter for a short period some time ago). I post a photo and title from posts frequently (but not always) on Pinterest. Within the narrative of my post I may create links to other sites which you may chose to follow. All of these sites (over which I do not have control) may utilise cookies. Those sites should provide information on their own privacy and cookies policies.
My posts are not transparent through to Instagram or Twitter, which I do not use for marketing purposes.

Please note that only the name you have chosen to made public will appear, e.g. "Anonymous" or "Jane Bloggs", and any Google/Google+ information you have elected to be made public will appear if your account name is drilled down, e.g. your hobbies, blogs you follow.
Only information you have elected to provide publicly on your account will be visible to me and readers of my blog.
