I realize I haven’t posted here for far too long, and I apologize. I hope to do better in the fall. In the meantime, thank you in advance for reading this post. It is important that I give you this information.
You may or may not be aware that updates to the European Union’s GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) are going into effect on May 25, 2018. These regulations affect any website or business that interacts with people in the EU.
If you have subscribed to my blog via email or RSS feed, please continue reading:
Since I am not able to tell which subscribers are from the EU, I regret to say I will have to delete all email subscriptions, so that we can all start over on the same footing with the double opt-in process through FeedBlitz. I apologize for this, but think that it’s necessary to ensure full compliance. I will be deleting the subscriptions as of 1:00 p.m. EDT (Eastern Daylight Time), Wednesday, May 23, 2018 by which time all the GDPR compliancy information will be live on my websites.
I am disabling the RSS feed for my blog. This will ensure that all subscriptions go through the double opt-in process that FeedBlitz provides.
