On May 25, 2018 the Europeon Union is requiring websites to comply with some privacy laws tied to GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and another area that has been a requirement for awhile is the EU Cookie Laws (consent). In order to have HDBitchin in compliance with these new and older regulations we have added a couple of things.

We now have a Privacy Policy which should explain what data is seen and how it is handled by the website when you visit or agree to being a member. A link to our Privacy Policy is linked at the bottom left of every page on the website.

The other addition to the website is a Cookie Consent banner that will greet guests and members when you open the website but once acknowledged it will no longer be seen unless you clear your browser history which usually means that you are clearing cookies. If you clear the cookies from this website it will greet you again.

If you would like to know more you can click on the "Cookie Settings" link in the banner or the link just under the HDBitchin logo on the left side of the page. It looks like this...


When clicked it will open a "Privacy Preference Center" where you can learn more about the types of cookies we have and how you can select settings to turn some of them off. This ability to turn off cookies is the same as you can also do in your computer's browser but the tools we have added to HDBitchin will allow you to customize your settings here if you so wish.

Below is a picture of what the Cookie Consent Banner looks like. Note the "Cookie Settings" link that is in that banner. That also opens the "Privacy Preference Center" or PPC (more on the PPC below).


The above banner reads...

We use cookies to personalize content and ads, to provide social media features and to analyze our traffic. We also share information about your use of our site with our social media, advertising and analytics partners.


When the "Cookie Settings" link in the Cookie Consent Banner is clicked you will open the PPC and below is what you will see in the PPC...

Your Privacy


The above dialog box reads as follows.

Your Privacy
When you visit any web site, it may store or retrieve information on your browser, mostly in the form of cookies. This information might be about you, your preferences or your device and is mostly used to make the site work as you expect it to. The information does not usually directly identify you, but it can give you a more personalized web experience. Because we respect your right to privacy, you can choose not to allow some types of cookies. Click on the different category headings to find out more and change our default settings. However, blocking some types of cookies may impact your experience of the site and the services we are able to offer.

Clicking the tab "Strictly Necessary Cookies" you see and read the below...

You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will not then work. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.

Clicking the "Functional Cookies" tab you will see and read the below...

Please Note:

With these new legal requirements I have enabled a setting that forces all members to agree to the Privacy Policy and the Member Agreement anytime it is revised.

Since all this functionality is new code on the forum all established members will see the Privacy Policy and Member Registration Agreement screens and will need to agree to the current policy and agreement as a starting point.

GDPR requires that we maintain records of your consent.

The software for the Privacy Policy was updated this morning so therefore the Privacy Policy was forced to update. That means we will go thru the accepting of the Privacy Policy again. Not a big deal but necessary in these days of required compliance with Internet rules.
