GDPR Privacy Notice–though really, I don’t collect your info.

Note re comments on this blog:

If privacy is super important to you, don’t use your real name on comments, don’t add your email to comments (maybe your blog address or Twitter page, etc), don’t sign up for an email here, and such. I don’t collect data. I don’t have an email sign-up list (yet). Just so you know. If you made comments you want deleted, email me at mirwriter (at) gmail (and you know to add dot com) and make the subject header very clear, such as: “Remove comment on X date and Y post subject by me– commenter name A–which begins with this sentence…”  The clearer you are, the easier for me to respond in a satisfying manner.


This is a GDPR notification.

As you may be aware, on 25 May 2018 the EU General Data Protection Regulation EU (2016)/679 (GDPR) comes into force in all EU member states. The GDPR applies to ‘personal data’ meaning any information relating to an identifiable person who can be directly or indirectly identified by reference to an identifier. It requires that personal data be processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner, and that personal data be collected for specified and legitimate purposes.

I do not at this collect emails for newsletters or email lists, etc. So, you should not have that issue here or with me at this time.

WordPress provides an RSS feed of blog posts and related information on various blogs for the purpose of providing that information to those who wish to access blog information via an RSS reader or similar program. Here is a link to the Mir Writes  RSS feed.

Mir Writes/Mirwriter does not own WordPress or its RSS feed and I have no control over these tools. I am not affiliated with WordPress beyond using its services as described and I do not collect any data as a result of their use. If you have any concerns with WordPress’ privacy policy, please go here  or use a search engine to find “WordPress privacy policy.” It’s updated for 2018.

I make no use of this RSS feed data.

In addition, some blog posts or comments left by this blog’s visitors may include personal data such as the names of commenters or their blogs sites or linked to other personal data. These posts may have been or may be shared on social media including my social media accounts as follows (though I can’t think of an instance right now where I did.)

MirWriter Twitter account 

MirWriter Facebook page.

The privacy policies of Twitter and Facebook will apply to information posted on their websites.

MIR WRITES respects your personal data and takes care to maintain its confidentiality.

If you would like removed any personal data which you or someone else has included in blog posts or comment, or if you have any questions not answered by this post, please email me at mirwriter (at) gmail (and you know to add dot com) and put a clear subject such as “GDPR Privacy –a concern ” so I do not miss it.

Although, again, I have not used anyone’s data for anything. I’m a pretty lazy blogger. I have not been doing anything with anyone’s data other than reading your public comments and responding at times to them.
