Privacy Policy of

Does the GDPR apply to me and this website?

We are committed to privacy, and support current industry initiatives to preserve individual privacy rights on the Internet. Protecting your privacy on-line is an evolving area and this website will constantly evolve to meet these demands. One area now fully evolved, is the new EU General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR. 2018. And from the guidance freely available on trusted websites, it appears that this website might fall outside the radar, due to its definition and use.

"Do you process EU residents’ personal data? If you do, then the GDPR probably applies to you. It doesn’t matter whether you are based in an EU state or not, if your company processes, stores or transmits personal data belonging to EU residents, then you will almost certainly be required to comply with it. Are you engaged in economic activity? The one caveat to that, the GDPR does not apply to people processing personal data in the course of exclusively personal or household activity. This means you wouldn’t be subject to the Regulation if you keep personal contacts’ information on your computer or you have CCTV cameras on your house to deter intruders. To fall within the remit of the GDPR, the processing has to be part of an “enterprise”. Article 4(18) of the Regulation defines this as any legal entity that’s engaged in economic activity. You must be careful not to mistake business conducted from home for household activity."

So, considering this website does not fall within the term of an enterprise, or business, and is purely for Family, household and personal use,
and is not engaged in economic activity, it would appear the websites of, and do not need to follow the GDPR. But, that does not mean i do not follow its principles, and always followed the old Data protection act and will continue with its replacement as best i can. Of course, if the men in bowler hats should knock on my door and advise differently, then i would have to fall in line like all the other "entities", even though i do not conduct a business activity or enterprise of any sort.
