Ongoing Site Changes

By Bob Schmidt

9 August 2023

As you have no doubt already seen, there is a new feature on ACCU's website - a privacy pop-up with options to accept non-essential cookies containing personal data and the sharing of your IP address.

The pop-up is required by the EU's GDPR, which mandates that web site users have the ability to affirmatively opt-in to process their personal data.

A new requirement, as found by a German court (LG München I, Endurteil v. 20.01.2022 – 3 O 17493/20) prohibits a website from sharing a user's IP address without the user's permission. Accepting the sharing of your IP address will restore the thumbnails on the video pages, and some book covers on older reviews.

ACCU's new Cookie Policy can be found here. ACCU's Privacy Policy can be found here. Both are accessible via links on the pop-up. You may change your permissions at any time through the button at the top of the Cookie Policy page.

Site Changes

I have made several changes to the website in order to comply with new GDPR mandates.

The video pages no longer show thumbnails of the video; a generic image has been put in place temporarily. The same has happened with book covers in older reviews. I hope to be able to restore these images in the near future.

I also have had to change the default font for the website. The Roboto font has been replaced with either Helvetica, Arial, or your default san serif font, depending on your browser support. (Arial is most likely to be used.) If you see any problems with how a page has been rendered with your default san serif font, please let me know.

July's C Vu Journal has been published.

The July 2023 ACCU C Vu journal has been published and should arrive at members' addresses in the next few days. C Vu 35-3 and previous issues of C Vu can be accessed via the Journals menu (ACCU members only). The ePub version also is available.

New magazine indexes are available.

There are two new magazine indexes available on the site. 'By cover' indexes are available for Overload and C Vu. Both indexes are available from the Journals drop-down menu at the top of each page. Clicking on an image takes you to the issue's table of contents page. You must be logged in to access C Vu contents.

Please note that we don't have cover images for some of the older issues of the magazines. For those issues, a placeholder image is used. Hovering over the image will reveal the issue's publication number, and clicking on the placeholder will take you to the issue's table of contents.

If you have digital copies of any of the issues for which we have no covers, or a paper copy and access to a scanner, please consider emailing me an image file: Thank you.
