I am developing my own website with a blog, portfolio and tutorials, which will be accessible to the public.
As I am the only person who is in charge (my personal site), would I have to oblige to GDPR?
What I want to do is make an administrator panel and track user IP address ONLY if they go to that page. I would then block their IP if there is suspicious activity. I would also need to store cookies to ensure that the person using the administrator page is authorised.
As I understand GDPR make IP addresses personal information. Also, there is the EU cookie law too.
Is the GDPR and Cookie Law applicable to me or not? Also, would I have to make Terms and Conditions?
