NEW European Union (EU) laws

 European Union laws require you to give European Union visitors information about cookies used on your blog. In many cases, these laws also require you to obtain consent.

As a courtesy, Google has added a notice on Blogger, for those who have a blog hosted by them. The notice explains Google's use of certain Blogger and Google cookies, including use of Google Analytics and AdSense cookies.

You are responsible for confirming this notice actually works for your blog, and that it displays. If you employ other cookies, for example by adding third party features, this notice may not work for you. Learn more about this notice and your responsibilities at https://www.blogger.com/go/cookiechoices.

How to see the Notice if you are Outside European Union?

 Reference of below instructions are at http://www.mybloggertricks.com/2015/07/Custom-Cookies-notification-for-European-Union-countries.html (in case you need more information).
To see the notice if you’re outside of the EU, view your blog following the steps below:

  •  If you use a custom domain, you can use a EU IP Proxy address to browser your site. A Simple trick is to add the following string parameter just after your custom domain:
.prx.gb.teleport.to - You can see an example by using our domain name (www.gpttweaks.com). The URL would now look like http://www.gpttweaks.com.prx.gb.teleport.to (which you can click on to see it).


However, this trick does not seem to work for all websites as you can see below! 

(peoplesgpt.comhttp://peoplesgpt.com.prx.gb.teleport.to  (which you can click on to see this).


You may find needed help from Google at there Cookies Choices website at https://www.cookiechoices.org

Good to Know! (I'm in Chicago (US) and I wasn't wholly aware that such restrictions existed in the EU countries - Thanks!
