I’m a UK citizen, I live in the UK and the servers this site lives on are UK based. So the GDPR absolutely applies and hey, I have no clue who see’s this site. I NEVER look at stats or that stuff.
I couldn’t give a shit.
Apparently I have to though.
Yeah yeah yeah the EU will go after the big guys but illegal is still illegal, yes?
The fucking problem is that no-one is telling personal fucking bloggers what they can or should fucking do.
“Talk to a lawyer”. FFS.
I could delete everything and have a 404 page but if you visit that I still get data. Is that data governed by the GDPR? I have no fucking clue.
My Cpanel has some stats thing. At least I assume it does (never looked) – I couldn’t give a monkey’s about stats (I posted years ago that I’d rather have one visitor and one comment than a thousand visitors and no comments) – and I have zero control over what it collects. Does it violate GDPR? No fucking clue. Am I going to pay to find out? GTFO.
As I see it the only 100% safe option is to point my name servers somewhere else. Then no traffic hits me so no worries.
“Hey fuckwit, you are over-reacting!!!”
Then you tell me how my site is GDPR compliant. And indemnify me.
