The truth about Cookies - what you all need to know!

According to Blogger (Google) I am required to state something about reader's cookies in this post-May 25th age. In truth, I've no idea what it is that I'm meant to be saying...so here goes.

"Captain's journal: 'For the remainder of this voyage I shall refer to the crew as Cookies'"

This Blog displays messages that Colonel Bill's Wargames Depot posts upon Facebook, and will sometimes feature other snippets of information as and when received.

This blog no longer features clickable links to third party sites, so I'm afraid you'll need to copy and paste the above website addresses to use them. Please realise that by doing so you are using your own free will and I am not to be held accountable under European Union law for you doing so, nor to be viewed as coercing you via suggestion for doing so.

At this moment in time this blog only features two blog posts, including this very post. I am in the process of editing all previous (historic) posts to remove any links to third party sites, so I cannot be accused of crimes against cookies under European Union law (which I could be fined for).

Thank you for your continued support in this age of cookie protection.

Remember, under European Union law, cookies have rights!

I hope this blog post, and statement, satisfies Blogger (Google's) and the European Union's needs.

  1. Class! I think GDPR has got a load of companies running round like headless chickens...and most of it isn't necessary. Still it's fun to watch.

  3. Roy, All good, though I thought I had it all worked out, but now I'm confused. Let's just assume I am not on a diet, are your cookies better than my cookies? could we swap cookies? is a cookie for life? As far as I know, you have to have a warning banner on your blog that measures the full width of the screen and about three quarters deep. If you can get it to flash, so it is more noticeable then that is better.

    The banner must have the words cookie, third party, EU, notification, permission and then permission again, in fact you just can't have too many permissions on there. The order of the words doesn't matter as no-body understands it anyway, but having something to click on the banner that says 'there all better now' is probably the main thing.

    I have retired to my bunker and basically have told all he companies who have asked me do I want them to still love me and my data, to go away and all the software that asks me if I want location detection switched on, presumably in case I ever get lost, to switch it off. So far life this week feels pretty much the same as it did last week - except for the bunker bit, obviously.

  4. I took the easy way out and deleted my blog, such as it was. Or rather wasn't.

  5. Thanks everyone. However, I just remembered that I ate a chocolate chip cookie as part of my breakfast this morning ... do I need to make a blog post confession?!

    @Stu Rat: Yeah, I've deleted a few social media accounts pre-GDPR day. I didn't use them anymore, so that was the main reason, but all this nonsense helped me make the decision to have a 'spring clean' and delete things.

    Luckily my main wargaming is done via pen and paper play-by-mail gaming, which isn't effected by all this. Though if they ever do away with Cheque payments I'll be stuck.
