New surveillance warning required for international websites like this

To follow up the Electronic Freedom Foundation article, this notice from WordPress was just posted on the administration page for this website:

“Akismit and Privacy

To help your site be compliant with GDPR and other laws requiring notification of tracking, Akismit can display a notice to your user under your comment forms [that they are being tracked]. This feature is disabled by default; however if you or your audience are located in Europe, you need to turn it on.”

This is information WordPress collects. Now there will be a warning on the website.

Welcome to the Brave New World.
