EU, United States, Wordpress discussed on The WordPress Photography Podcast


Welcome to the WordPress photography podcast, the podcast for photographers who wanna learn how to get the most out of WordPress to grow their photography business. You don't need to be a geek to understand WordPress. Settled back and listen as we show you how. Now, here's your host, Scott widened kipah wits. Welcome to episode Eighty-one. My name is Scott widened give wit's end today. I wanna answer another question from you, the listeners of this podcast, as you know, quite often, we pay attention to conversations happening in around on Facebook, and on Twitter and everywhere, and we also ask you what you want to learn about in the podcast. And that's what I'm doing today. So today's episode I am answering question which was do I need cookie consent or opt out pop up on my page for the first time visitors now, my business is in the US. But sometimes I get e you visitors on my page GDP are is a law that was. Passed in in the EU. And it is something that it's worth addressing. This is something that image Lee has researched quite heavily since this came out since this was announced and since it was approved and and whatnot. And you might notice that imagery, we actually do not have any GDP our consent on the website. That's not to say, we don't respect people's privacy. Because if somebody does want their account removed their their Email address removed from our database or anything like that, we will respect it. We offer won't share people's content information because that's also a privacy issue. However, the laws do not require us at immensely to do it. So I won't talk a little bit about that U S businesses. United States businesses are not bound by the EU laws. However, many businesses do still follow GDP. You're just out of respect for their clients their customers. Now that doesn't mean that every business that follows these laws put the pop up on their site that notice on their site for consent. But it does mean that they will respect the actions that are placed by the our customers just like what we're doing an image. Now, large companies have physical operations in the EU do have to follow the GDP our laws that's companies like Google and and whatnot that have these major facilities. Now, you as a small business, if you have a physical operation, the United States and a physical operation in the EU, you probably should be following GDP consents as well. And I what I mean by that is actually putting the consent notice on your website. Now, I wanna point out that when you start reading things about GDP are online. You're going to see a lot of articles that will assume that majority of US businesses have to follow these guidelines. It's not true. If you you're outside of the EU, then you do not legally have to put consent notice on your website. Even if your customers are in the EU, for example, if you're a destination wedding photographer, but you're based in the United States, you only have a physical location the United States, but you do a lot of destination weddings in the EU. You do not have to put a GDP our consent on her website legally, you might wanna do that out of courtesy. If you do that much business in the EU, but it's completely up to you. That is the GDP our law of how relates to you summed up in two three minutes. Thank you for listening to this episode or watching this episode, and I'll see you in the next door.
