Making websites safe & secure

On May 25, 2018 the Gen­er­al Data Pro­tec­tion Reg­u­la­tion was imple­ment­ed for all web­sites in the EU to clear­ly dis­close any data col­lec­tion, declare the law­ful basis & pur­pose for data pro­cess­ing, how long data is being retained, & if it is being shared with any third-​parties or out­side of the EU. Does­n’t this per­tain only to Euro­pean coun­tries? No way! Just about every web­site can be viewed in any coun­try, so it applies to all web­sites worldwide.

Basi­cal­ly, it means if you col­lect per­son­al infor­ma­tion — any­thing from an email address to a birth­day to cred­it card num­bers — you must state exact­ly what the infor­ma­tion will be used for, & ask per­mis­sion to receive it.

There are heavy fines for non-​compliance. Here is a com­pre­hen­sive arti­cle about GDPR on Wikipedia.

It’s a good idea to also update a web­site’s pri­va­cy pol­i­cy & terms & con­di­tions state­ments to reflect the new standards.

Safe & Secure…until past due

Coin­ci­den­tal­ly, as I was cre­at­ing Amper­Art #126 Safe & Secure, a friend asked if I could cov­er her rent this month for a stor­age unit before it went to auc­tion, so I did. (I lost every­thing at a stor­age auc­tion on Feb­ru­ary 8, 2014, & it has dev­as­tat­ed me ever since & will con­tin­ue to dev­as­tate me for the rest of my life. So I know how it is.) Stor­age — anoth­er mean­ing for Safe & Secure.
