What personal data we collect and why we collect it

The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) took effect on May 25th 2018. The GDPR requires companies and site owners to be transparent about how they collect, use, and share personal data. It also gives individuals more access and choice when it comes to how their own personal data is collected, used, and shared.
It’s important to understand that while the GDPR is a European regulation, its requirements apply to all sites and online businesses that collect, store, and process personal data about EU residents no matter where the business is located.
Justmuddlingthroughlife.co.uk is in compliance with The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679.
