The blue 'Privacy settings' box in the bottom right corner is a new legal requirement under GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). It can’t be dismissed or hidden as the idea is that it must be easy to access at all times should you wish to change your settings.
Clipping box hedges
My late wife used to clip the box twice a year and I have forgot at what time of the year she did this. Some have told me April and October others different months altogether. What would you advise ?
Every day is a new day. Enjoy it.
