Akismet, privacy and more
I live in Canada, my website and domain provider are in Canada. Just outside Toronto.
So I don’t know how to do things. The EU has some new law about cookies. Google Analytics had a requirement that I have to mention that I am using Google Analytics, however when Google merged all their privacy policies from different products…the paragraph with that requirement is gone.
As far as I understand how Akismet works…Someone makes a comment on my site (I am using jetpack), the comment goes to the Akismet land, it gets checked out by clone mixes of Matt Mullenweg and Klingons, when they Qapla’ it, then it goes back to my website and appears.
What information does Akisment looks at, uses, etc…?
Would you even include it? What about Google Analytics, would you include it?
How do I find out about any cookies my advertising networks might put in my visitors computers?
I also put my tweets on the side bar and a facebook like page for my fan page.
Am I over-thinking this?
What would YOU do?
You raise very good points here and I applaud you for thinking about this, but in all frankness I think that you may be over thinking it a bit.
I think that companies like Apple need to have privacy policies because the gather, names, email, addresses, phone numbers, credit card info. etc…
I would look at other blog/sites in Canada that offer similar services to you and see what they are doing.
