Firstly here's a short description why I had to add a privacy page

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a legal framework that sets guidelines for the collection and processing of personal information of individuals within the European Union (EU). The GDPR sets out the principles for data management and the rights of the individual, while also imposing fines that can be revenue-based. The General Data Protection Regulation covers all companies that deal with data of EU citizens, so it is a critical regulation for corporate compliance officers at banks, insurers, and other financial companies. GDPR came into effect across the EU on May 25, 2018. Read more: https://www.investopedia.com/terms/g/general-data-protection-regulation-gdpr.asp

Because of this regulation I am forced to either ask any visitors from the European Union for their consent re. the setting of cookies or simply tell everyone who visits that there are cookies being used by this website. Things may have to be changed again in the future - depending on the law(s).

What are cookies anyway? Here's a great website that explains everything.

The future: Cookieless Tracking

In the future most websites will use cookieless tracking, which means there may not be a need to save cookies on your computer or mobile device very soon. This technology allows any device connected to the internet to be tracked without the use of cookies by assigning it a unique device fingerprint, using data about the device without any personally identifiable information.

My attitude towards the visitors of this website

I personally don't need your information. You don't even have to register in order to view this website. I only offer it because it's integrated in Joomla (the CMS I am using) and for giving you the chance to receive emails from me (which doesn't happen very often anyway). You can always opt out of receiving emails or delete your account fully. The main reason for registering is the possibility to post articles on tallwomen.org. As a matter of fact I would love it if more of you would publish your own stories and views.
