Re: Txp cookies, visitor logging, and GDPR stuff in general

For those on WF and wondering, they anonymize the IPs in their own server logs of general web visitors, but not the IPs in the logs of their clients’ websites (e.g. my situation). So you do need a DPA from them and write all the blah, blah, blah in the privacy policy about how you use (and not) the data. I have been informed they will be providing a DPA ‘in the next few days’. So I’ll have to wait to launch.

Re: Txp cookies, visitor logging, and GDPR stuff in general

The article might be wrong but…

Nowhere in GDPR does it state that you need ‘consent’ for email marketing. For some reason, everyone got confused, and the big guns started their opt-in process and confused the heck out of everyone else. (www.spaghettiagency.co.uk/blog/gdpr-youre-doing-it-all-wrong/)

Re: Txp cookies, visitor logging, and GDPR stuff in general

This article admits that no one knows anything.

Facebook has rearranged how it asks users for permission to collect data, but it also tells consumers to either submit or leave the service. That’s a violation of GDPR, according to Ryan and others. “Access to a service cannot be made conditional on data tracking,” he says. Facebook disagrees. “We’ve been preparing for more than a year to ensure Facebook complies with the GDPR,” a Facebook spokesman says. The wording of Facebook’s user agreement could just be a feeler from the company, seeing where the line will eventually be drawn once regulators start enforcing the laws. It’s similar to how many of companies are approaching GDPR. “It’s all a game of chicken with regulators,” Ryan says. – Playing Chicken with Regulators: Some Companies shrug off GDPR

I actually looked into geolocation technology a few weeks ago in order to see if I could come up with a way to block anyone from an EU country as a proof of concept.

On visiting the article my FF plugins blocked a number of tracking attempts from the particular page.

It’s Advertising Age. Not too surprising they would have 7 forms of Analytics (Crazy Egg, Google Analytics, Quantcast, comScore, Chartbeat, new Relic, siteCatalyst) and 3 advertising networks (Doubleclick Campaign Manager, Doubleclick for Publishers, and Google AdSense).

And I wasn’t actually going to block anyone. Especially after I watched this YouTube Video and the host said he still hasn’t bothered to put the cookie warning up on a lot of his sites.

This is the first I’ve seen of this: hellobar.com has a Terms of Use, a Privacy Policy, and a GDPR Notice.
