Privacy policy

People who have a WordPress.com-blog are not in control of technical aspects of their sites, like cookies. Our websites themselves don’t set the cookies, but WordPress.com does, and all our sites are merely subdomains of WordPress.com. Consequently, I wouldn’t think we can be held liable in any legal case arising from this particular issue, as something completely out of your control cannot possibly be your fault.

If anyone is not complying with the law by not giving an option to opt out of cookies (which, frankly, is impossible to prosecute if actual guidelines haven’t been issued yet), it is WordPress.com, not individual bloggers, as individual bloggers simply don’t have the ability to add such an option.
