GDPR, Privacy and the Norfolkinworldwar1 blog

As you are probably aware there is a new data protection law (commonly called GDPR); as part of this we have been updating our regulations and ensuring that in all things regarding your personal data, we are transparent, fair and lawful.

We have always wanted to make sure that the Norfolkinworldwar1.org site was a community project and we thank everyone who has shared their stories, left comments on the site or emailed us over the past few years. Rest assured we plan on continuing to share stories, histories and events with you up until the end of this year at the very least.

Please also be assured that we do not share your contact details without seeking your permission first – I know that in several instances friendships have been made through stories published on the blog and we are very happy to have facilitated this.

As part of GDPR we are responsible for ensuring we have your consent to keep your comments and their associated email addresses on our blog. Please ensure that you email norfolkinworldwar1@gmail.com to give us your consent again otherwise we will need to delete your comments.

Comments and usernames are in the public domain, as you are aware, but if you wish us to remove your comments at any time please email the above address. Your email addresses are stored in the WordPress software which a few members of Norfolk County Council staff have access to. We do not share or use your email addresses; please be aware that to leave a comment on our blog your email address will need to be stored in the software.

WordPress are owned by a company called Automattic, and they are the data controllers. For their privacy notice please visit: https://automattic.com/privacy/ or https://automattic.com/privacy-notice/
