Cleaned up Mailing List Re-Add if needed + New Privacy Laws
Hi everyone! Here is a more technical / legal update: there were some new privacy laws made in the European Union so I added a privacy & site policy page and banner which should open when someone visits this Wartune blog. I am not a lawyer and I don’t have money to hire one – this is a Wartune blog so I just do the best I can.
Here is a link to the Site Policies page: //wartune.dolygames.com/site-policies/
Possible permission window popup in future but I don’t like it
A lot of websites have also started first showing a forced window with their policies where you must say OK to enter the website. I understand why they did that but I really hate that as a solution and I hope I don’t have to do that as it would be very frustrating to all people. These law makers sitting in their ivory towers have no idea about the consequences of their actions on the little people. That said I will try to keep monitoring what’s going on and if it turns out that such drastic actions are needed I will have to do that also. I also welcome any advice from any of you who might be legal experts or are very knowledgeable about this topic – feel free to comment below or email me directly.
I cleaned up the free Mailing List
I also took the opportunity to clean up the mailing list which automatically informs subscribers when I publish a new article. This is both to help respect these new laws and because I don’t have the money/resources for mailing to so many subscribers. I deleted around a thousand I think which looked like old – maybe subscribed long ago and not using anymore or didn’t bother to unsubscribe. It’s hard to tell because the tool I use is not very clear, so I did the best I can to take care. That said I might have deleted an active Wartune player – if so I am sorry – please just take 2 seconds to re-subscribe if you are not getting your emails. Note importantly that after anyone subscribers the system sends a confirmation email which must be confirmed before the email is approved to be emailed to – this is not new, it was always there and I just deleted about 500 of people who did not confirm their subscription. Also at the bottom of the newsletter is an unsubscribe link which anyone can use to unsubscribe.
Other stuff related to new laws – Account deletion requests
If someone has an account on this blog and wants their account and all information included fully deleted, which could be some older friends, older authors, new and old Patron supporters, then simply email me directly or via the contact form and I will try to find your account if it exists and will delete it if you requested it.
Note: I will not be wasting time deleting comments, so please don’t send me requests to delete your comments.
Any other concerns?
For anything just feel free to email me and I will do my best to support all people. Like I mentioned I am just one person and running this blog both content-wise and technical-legal-wise requires a lot of money and work so I just do the best I can and if there is some mistake or issue please just RESPECTFULLY communicate and I will do my best to solve all issues.
