Word Press blogs are accessible worldwide. On May 25, 2018, a European law went into effect that is called General Data Protection Regulation, (GDPR). It is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union and the European Economic Area.
Because some people are unfamiliar with IP addresses, I want to say a little about them. An IP address traces to the Internet Service Provider, (ISP). That is the company that connects you to the internet. If there is an emergency, law enforcement can contact the ISP for account holder. An IP address does not tell anyone your exact address, your name or other personal things.
This should not make anyone afraid to visit Word Press blogs, but rather, give them more confidence that Word Press respects our privacy.
