    The blog I need help with is jsbriz.wordpress.com.

  2. The following is from our legal team:

    We’re aware of the recent EU privacy directive and the related UK Cookie Law. As of now, the relevant authorities haven’t issued concrete guidance on the actions that are necessary to comply with the law. We’ll be watching as the situation develops and may make changes to our services in the future, if required.

    For now – since sites hosted at WordPress.com do make use of cookies, you may like to flag this fact for visitors to your site. One way to do this is to add a text widget to your side bar and include a link to our privacy policy (which contains information on the cookies that we use). You might also inform your visitors that they can refuse all cookies by changing the settings of their browsers.

    Our Privacy Policy can be found here:

  5. It has never been my intention to offend, I complain about an attitude, never about people. The link to the conduct code is a bit hard.

  6. Hello Javier! As what our legal team suggested, you may compose a disclaimer of your own and post it in a text widget:

    Be sure to place the widget somewhere noticeable on your blog.

    Let me know if you need help in getting this done. Thanks!
