Blogger & GDPR

Hi everyone,

You can count on the fact that Google is committed to GDPR compliance across products, including Blogger. We are always working to stay compliant, which helps make compliance easier for your blog. We are also committed to providing robust privacy and security protections built into our services. We know security and privacy are important to you, and they are important to us, too. For Google, it’s a priority that your private information is safe. 

You can find more information about privacy, data and security at privacy.google.com, or by visiting Google’s Privacy Policy.

As we cannot provide you with legal advice, we encourage you to consult an attorney to understand your status and obligations under GDPR. If you are a data controller for a blog, you may find guidance related to your responsibilities on the website of your national or lead data protection authority under the GDPR (as applicable), as well as by reviewing publications by data privacy associations such as the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP). 

Should you have specific, technical questions in regards to GDPR, please feel free to let us know here and we'll do our best to answer your questions.

Thanks!

Kelly
Your Blogger Community Manager

Hello, I am not particularly expert with this, since I am only do writing, and I am collecting data for newsletter porpuses using MailChimp but very rare send emails using MailChimp since I am more focusing on writing my content, may I ask if what is your opinion about the Privacy Policy we have on our website, and if we abide the GDPR, here is the URL of our Privacy Policy.

How has the GDPR changed our ability to receive Blogger comment notifications by email?  NONE of us are receiving them as we used to and we miss them.  What is the tentative timetable for this issue to be fixed and how will Google/Blogger let us know the fix is available?

Hi! On my italian blog I see the new banner (with cookie advice/GDPR) at the bottom of my page... but it's wrong: I see the html tag of the link on the word "cooking", and it isn't a link really... this is the banner on my page, automatically puts by Google:
Questo sito utilizza <a href='https://www.blogger.com/go/readercookies' target='_blank'> cookie </a> di Google per erogare i propri servizi e per analizzare il traffico. Il tuo indirizzo IP e il tuo agente utente sono condivisi con Google, unitamente alle metriche sulle prestazioni e sulla sicurezza, per garantire la qualità del servizio, generare statistiche di utilizzo e rilevare e contrastare eventuali abusi. Ulteriori informazioni OK
Is there the possibility to correct it? Thanks!

Thanks for your information Kelly, regarding Googles GDPR notifications, I'd like to see the following opt-out check boxes: on the EU cookie and data collection notification, Blogger comment form, and the Blogger contact form. I hope that this is the right thread for this comment. Thanks

Hola, yo tengo un blog personal en España y me gustaría saber si los comentarios estarían permitidos sin incumplir la GDPR.

Hi,

Where can I find the privacy notice you've amended on my blog?  It dosen't come up?  So I can check it and don't know where to find it in order to amend it.

This statement answers no real questions.
 
For instance, when people are asked to upload their ID to prove ownership of a blog, only to still be denied access, how long is that data kept?
 
When will google begin deleting inactive blogs that have not been used in decades? There is no business reason for doing so.
 
For those with legacy blogs that were not migrated, will those blogs still be kept indefinitely even though the real owner will probably never be able to prove ownership without an expensive lawyer?
 
I am glad to hear google has recently been fined billions for GDPR noncompliance. I hope this will continue until we get a better answer on GDPR from google regarding blogspot.
