Re: New GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and phpBB

Topic with 20 pages. And what is the result? GDPR for phpBB or not? (Now I expect another 20 pages on my question) The answer is buried throughout in bits and pieces. Also search the Ideas board. It looks like functionallity will be left out of the core and delegated to specific extensions, thankfu...

Re: New GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and phpBB

The USA is looking at the CONSENT Act As long as they define what "sensitive customer proprietary information" is, I don't see an issue here. And so long as that sensitive info is actually sensitive. SSNs, Credit Card numbers, banking info, etc. Well there is a new service for this GDPR: https://gd...

Re: New GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and phpBB

The furthest extent that the law should go is transparency. Past that, the laws that we should be making shouldn't be against providers, but rather the criminals that commit breaches, tools that assist in identity concealment (ie Tor), as well as the people that actually commit the misuse of the dat...

So, it just dawned on me that I never posted these here.

Re: New GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and phpBB

assuming that you are in the EU you would need to contact someone who is an expert on this new law in the EU. phpbb may or may not have to make any changes in order to be in compliance. if you are not in the EU then you simply do not have to worry about it in my opinion. robert A lot would have to ...

Re: New GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and phpBB

The right of archiving applies only to public goods strictly defined in GDPR, for example a medical clinic can archive patient cards. Your forum is your private business and you have no right to archiving for pubic goods. Sorry, but this is just completely false. I hate this law, and have no plans ...

Re: New GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and phpBB

Only minimum amount of people should have access to data (if it's not a firm, then only owner should have that access) & only need to use it when it is required. Disagree with only the owner having access to it. In the case of our forum, all top-level administrators currently have read access to it...

Re: New GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and phpBB

I don't know where you get an idea about e-mail address should be encrypted. Don't ask me, ask the EU. (Actually, unless I'm thinking about the EU ePrivacy regulation that's coming out soon after? This is a fun one as well, btw...) E: Andre, yeah, that's the "logic." But it's the same as saying you...

Re: New GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and phpBB

The password field in phpbb is not encrypted. It is hashed. Technically by the law, yes. It does all have to be encrypted. But again, not everyone wants to do that. Personally, I think that the encryption requirements will be one of the first to be shot down in court. For those interested, my site i...

Re: New GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and phpBB

This topic is getting way too long, and it seems to me that basically we just going around in circles. I probably already wrote these points before, but let's do it again so it might help out with creating a set of features that might be implemented in the core. What we could do: The data export, a...

Re: New GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and phpBB

This is not an obligation, because no one forces you to use phpBB. This is an element of competitiveness on the market. Which software should I choose - lawful or having a legal problem? Extensions are ok, but as I and others wrote, the extension is today, and tomorrow there is no because the autho...

Got away from this as I've been busy lately with work. I did find something out, though. This is how the EU plans on enforcing it in the US: http://www.uniformlaws.org/ActSummary.aspx?title=Foreign%20Money%20Judgments%20Recognition%20Act I'm once again torn if I want to believe any of the bs going a...
