Our Privacy Policy

The Squirrel’s Eye

May 24, 2018

It appears that with the passing of the GDPR by the European Union that this little blog (used for no other purpose but to entertain) must provide you with a privacy policy, explaining just exactly how we at The Squirrel’s Eye use your private information. So with the threat of a 20 million-pound fine for non-compliance hanging over our heads, we offer you this quaint, but effective policy. (I’m not even sure that this is necessary, but it doesn’t hurt to play it safe.)

First, you should know that this blog, like almost all websites, uses cookies to collect information. What cookies are, or how they work, I really can’t tell you. Until I started blogging, I thought that cookies were tasty, little treats made by Little Debbie, Archway, and Grandma. This new breed of cookie is composed of ones and zeros rather than flour and sugar. They collect information necessary to make your viewing of websites more pleasant and personal. I’m just guessing, but this is probably what makes a website look great on my Kindle and also great on my laptop.  We at The Squirrel’s Eye don’t collect and store the information provided by these mysterious cookies, but WordPress.com that sponsors this site through their free blog program may. Review their privacy policy here.
