GDPR and Switching the Lights Off

Dear friends, I have been reading up about the upcoming GDPR legislation. That activity resulted in a sleepless night, and the decision to switch this blog off on 24th May. Let me say; I am a supporter of privacy rights for the individual, so I understand and support what GDPR aims to do. Also, this blog is probably right at the “invisible” end of the spectrum in terms of exposure to GDPR requirements. However, I have not been able to get a clear picture of the extent to which a simple blog such as this is required to comply. There are comments, likes, follows, stats, and social media links on this blog, all of which involve personal data (and a fair proportion of that data is from the EU). Personal data means GDPR compliance and a lot more action and responsibility than just a privacy policy. All this tips the scale from being a fun hobby to a worrisome chore. So that is why I am switching off. Thank you for all the views, likes, and comments. I wish you all the best.

Tom
