Well, another week ends. A point on the equator has travelled 280532 km (174 352 miles) since our last week link round-up and I’m officially calling it a series now that N°3 is here. In this post, we cover legal stuff for our European readers and some photographic stuff for all.
GDPR: Although this concerns commercial companies more than leisure blogs with no financial income, I thought you might be interested in understanding what data is collected by DearSusan. In a word, none. But that’s not really true or so simple. The fact is that we don’t knowingly collect or use your data. We don’t sell it out to evil partners, we don’t use it to target ads … but we do have visitor stats which we occasionally look out to try to determine which topics and post types you find more interesting. Also some of the tools used in the blog (image carousel, visitor stats …) do use some data, although we don’t use that. If you’re interested in the specifics, here is a Privacy Page created with the help of WordPress. Also, there should be a unsubscribe link in each email we send you.
