Thread: GDPR

  1. #1

    Default GDPR

    GDPR is causing me immense headaches.
    I'm tempted to close the site today in order to avoid getting a huge fine for non-compliance.

    I attempted to set up a mailchimp email list to contact everyone and get their opt-in permission, but mailchimp disallowed the list as there is a high bounce rate possibility.
    I really don't know how to go about cleaning up the list.

    I just feel it's just not worth the effort.

    I'd like to hear your views.

    Edit: I have done the following:
    1: Email all members giving everyone the option of deleting their account (all posts would then be converted to a guest post).
    2: Turn "Receive admin email" off for all members
    3: Remind members in the above mentioned email that they should set "Receive admin email" ON if they wish to receive admin emails. NOTE: notification emails such as Topic replies and PMs have not been changed as this is a beneficial function of the site. If you wish to turn these off, you can by going to your profile settings.

    If you have any privacy concerns or anything else related to GDPR, please do not hesitate to get in touch and I will do my best to help with your request.

    Thanks

    Kind of sucks even a tiny place like this has to be in compliance.

    Yep. I've seen sites just close or refuse access to EU residents.

    yeah, because who needs free flowing drugs and alcohol fueling adventorous sex with taut, lithe young bodies when you could wander around a dying town in the freezing cold with a can of asahi super dry in your hand while some toothless old farmer shouts at you.

    I wouldn't worry about it, specifically because you don't have enough money to warrant sueing.
