Cookies notification in European Union countries

 For What It's Worth ~ I don't use cookies on my blog. Blogger and Google, as the owners of Blogger (and the host for Will Brady's Journal / Short Notes) DO make use of cookies, though I am not privy to their operational characteristics.

That said, European Union (EU) laws require me to give EU visitors information about cookies used on your blog. In many cases, these laws also require me to obtain consent.

As a courtesy, Blogger and Google have added a notice on the blog to help meet these regulations. The notice lets visitors know about Google's use of certain Blogger and Google cookies on the blog, including Google Analytics and AdSense cookies.

Learn about Google’s privacy practices and how Google uses data on partner sites.

Googles says that if I have edited your blog in a way that hides this notice, then I am responsible to notify visitors about cookies used on this blog and if necessary, obtain consent.

If, in the future, I have added other blog features that set cookies, including third-party analytics or advertising services, I will need to provide additional or a different notice.

It is your responsibility to determine, based on your cookie use, what else would be appropriate. If you choose to use a different notice, be sure you still comply with Google’s EU user consent policyLearn more on generating cookie notices.
