Hi. your spider is one of the orb weavers, Araneidae family, possibly Larinioides genus, furrow spiders.
They are all quite harmless. Having played with these as a kid, if they web my porch in an inconvenience, I just take them out of their web and try to get them to make home near a window out of the way.
Nothing like a face full of spider coming in late at night. I welcome them and leave them undisturbed out of the way. Hardly call to move,easier getting the spider to move.
