Adobe Portfolio & cookie Banner in Europe and GDPR

Just build a quick website with some photos -freelance photographer- (right now unpublished) and having problems to find any legally correct banner options for adobe portfolio (opt in ) as I can just enter a simple text and this seams not to enough.

Is it possible to use Adobe Portfolio in Europe ? I am not using any tracking, Google Aanalytics and so on but I guess Adobe does. Adobe Fonts I guess are on an US Server so I would have to mention all this in my GDPR.

 Love Portfolio for his simplicity but when it comes to cookies and GDPR I am lost. Simple design with my pictures, one link to Instagram and a contact form. 

Any suggstions would be welcome. Thanks

you're welcome.

 

p.s. others may weigh-in and give specific advice but, in general, it isn't easy to customize portfolio.

in the future, to find the best place to post your message, use the list here, https://community.adobe.com/

p.s. i don't think the adobe website, and forums in particular, are easy to navigate, so don't spend a lot of time searching that forum list. do your best and we'll move the post if it helps you get responses.

You can add the optional Cookie Banner to your landing page if it makes you feel better.

GDPR is just there to raise awareness about cookies & other tracking scripts.  Ultimately, end users must decide to accept or delete cookies from their browser settings or not.  That's their choice.

Thank you Nancy.

Unfortuanetly it is not enough at least for Germanny as Adobe informed me that 2 performance cookies will always be active and cannot be disabled. So the viewer cannot decline these 2 cookies and as these are 3rd party non technical cookies it goes against german law.

There are even more points as a cookie banner would not be enough anymore and so on but this is not the place and I guess the problem exists just in Germany maybe Europe.

Thank you ... is there any chance to close the thread ?

Keep in mind that thousands of German residents use Portfolio for their personal website without undue concerns over GDPR.  At this point, it's a tempest in a teapot.

 

Do whatever you think is best.  Nobody is forcing you to use Portfolio.  However, you'll likely encounter the same issues no matter which site service you use — Squarespace, Webflow, Wix, WordPress, etc..

 

Good luck.

I am not  judging Adobe Portfolio. as it was my 1st choice because of it simplicity and I know plenty of freelancer who use it.  I am not a huge fan of the data privacy rules as they are super complex in Europe and the fines are heavy. 

My question was regarding to businesses/freelancer in Europe and here Adobe and the one you mentioned are not GDPR conform. Would have loved if I cold use a cookie consent tool plug in for portfolio.

That said, Wordpress ( I do not mean wordpress com) offers you the option of 3rd party plug ins ( Cookie Consent tools). They are a lot and it seams the better one are not free (starting at 59 Euro) but they are up to date with the new regulations. 

Everybody can do what he wants but if you have to pay a fine of 5000 Euro or even just 500 Euro as a freelancer, it makes sense to inform oneself.  Have a nice weekend

I prefer to deal in known facts, not hypothetical scenarios.

 

Name one freelancer you know who has been fined for violating GDPR.  You probably can't because it doesn't happen. 

 

GDPR goes after big sites that collect & store mountains of data.  They would be more interested in Facebook, Amazon or Adobe than what your personal website does.  Adobe has millions of global customers.  You don't.  Adobe complies with GDPR because they have to.  Their business requires them to protect private documents and personal data.

https://www.adobe.com/documentcloud/trust-center/general-data-protection-regulation.html

 

Your website probably gets fewer than 100 unique hits per month if you don't count the robots.  If you're not collecting sensitive user data, you're golden. So relax and stop worrying about GDPR.  If it makes you feel better, add a cookie banner and privacy policy to your website.  

 

Use this free Privacy Policy Generator.

Good luck.
