Info on the Privacy Policy in compliance with the  GDPR (From the 25th May 2018)

– For EU Resident only –

This website currently uses the following third-party service providers that can also collect some of your data, more detailed info on the list below. This additional section is addressed to all the users coming from the EU community, in accordance with the GPDR law guidelines that are aimed to guarantee even more security and control over the private data collected and processed on this website. Even if this law falls under the European community and affects only part of my audience, I think it’s important for all my readers to know how I will process most of their data as well.

For example, from now on whether a reader is from the EU or not, if they want to comment or contact me via the contact form, they all have to read and agree to these terms to be able to send the message as there is no easy solution to only show the consent button only to a certain audience. This sentence is NOT part of the privacy policy, but just my own opinion: I think that knowing that ALL of my reader’s data is secure and will never be shared (which is part of this policy) is a good thing anyway.
