If you are business owner with a website, you are no doubt painfully aware of the madness surrounding the EU User Consent Compliance Update. If you are coming to this site, please note that you will see ads (through Google AdSense) and you may encounter cookies. You can visit Google to find information on how cookies are being handled by their advertising partners. Currently, I do not have a way to give you an option to accept/not accept cookies within this site, but am working toward that goal. I do not have an option for you to sign up to receive notifications so I do not gather personal information of that nature. If you contact me through the contact form, that information gets stored within the database for this site but is never “mined” or shared with anyone – and in fact I’m 100% sure I would have no idea how to pull up that information if my life depended on it. I don’t create websites – I create art. I passively accept the pennies (literally) passed along through the Google Ads that you click on – but I’ve been doing that for over 5 years and have yet to make the first $100 before they will cut me a check. You should check out Google’s advertising policies though as they, being the “Big Guys” in this situation are making every effort to comply to the letter of the new compliance regulations.
This is an enormously complex and difficult process, with precious little documentation that is helpful to the small-time blogger/business person like myself. I simply appeal to your good will to be patient while we wait for all the rules and regulations to settle down and for sensible and useful information to be made available to “little people” like me and countless others with a website. My wife will then dutifully try to figure out how to incorporate that process into this website.
Please note that I do not ship products outside the continental US and have no plans to do so in the future. I strongly doubt anyone from the EU has ever come across my little website. If you have, howdy and welcome and I hope you are doing more on this website than reading this particular blog post.
