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

I can hold to it, as long as i don't turn into money making platform. https://gdpr-info.eu/art-3-gdpr/ Art. 3 Section 2a: This Regulation applies to the processing of personal data of data subjects who are in the Union by a controller or processor not established in the Union, where the processing ...

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

Hmm.. i'll update my post later, but one thing i can say now. Members/customers are only using service we provide, they don't own anything. It has been mentioned before, that when you submit your data after or at the registration time, you accept/accepted and are responsible for your own actions. T...

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

All this convo here or in any other topic with at least small amount of info about this gdpr, is just a way to do nothing but talk. Waste of time and energy. Talking doesn't solve anything. So, I thought about this... and yeah, you're right. A lot of bitching by us all (myself included) without any...

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

If you want to contribute and help with this, then contribute by making a PR. Or an extension. Stuff like PM encryption, e-mail encryption, etc should all be left out of core. Same thing with how some software packages are changing everything to opt-out by default - if someone wants to set notifica...

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

Your fear and compliance means more money for them If someone doesn't like something, they can always quit/delete their account. They can quit, but a lot of forums don't offer account deletions. Some (like ours) will offer a deactivation, but never a deletion. We always permanently retain and log a...

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

Why doesn’t someone who is interested in this invite an EU legal guy who knows about this to comment here? It seems there’s lots of opinions but not much else, the neighbourhood is divided. Because this is a law for lawyers by lawyers. Your fear and compliance means more money for them. Of course t...

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

Since large IT companies are US companies, the EU wanted to protect its interests and take taxes from these companies based on the place of providing the service, not the company's headquarters. But it's up to the US to enforce it, which isn't (or, at least, shouldn't be) happening. If China wants ...

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

GDPR does not make exceptions for proxies/VPN use. It's not a question of where the site was accessed from, but rather where that natural person is. Again, you are responsible for knowing. This is the nbest answer I could get out of multiple people when I was first researching this mess. What if eve...

Re: EU Privacy Law Compliance

I was happy when there were no stupid requirements. I kept my website calmly. Every day I work in the field of legal metrology (devices for billing, such as water meters, heat meters, etc.) and I have a lot of legal requirements there, so that someone who uses such a meter is not wronged. I have ch...

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

Unless your wording is imprecise: next time ask the lawyer what distinguishes a person from a user. If I need consent of a person , and a user can withdraw that then this only raises more questions. It is one issue to follow all GDPR principles, but it is another issue to identify a person (interne...

Re: EU Privacy Law Compliance

thus a better option would be to just allow to not collect them in some contexts (e.g. for post validation/moderation purposes). This could create a huge security risk, and could create a very unsafe situation when anyone is free to go on a forum completely untracked. Would be a very dangerous opti...

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

Sir, how dare you underestimate the stupidity of the regulatory bodies of the EU? There's probably a regulation against doing that somewhere... :lol: I run a gamer forum. we use gamer nicks. why should I care about GDPR, a bureaucrat nightmare ? We're in the same situation. We're ignoring it comple...

Re: GDPR regulations

After driving my self even more insane from reading the Three Volume Novel (ie the regulations) my PERSONAL opinion of the GDPR in relation to the phpBB software is:- 1) A person needs to be delegated as being responsible for the security for the data entered by the user (thats you as the admin) 2)...

Re: GDPR regulations

When all sites registered with European reseller or hosted by a European host are forced to comply. If a US based domain registrar or host tried that against an American website/company for not complying with a bs EU law, they'd be hit with a lawsuit faster than roadrunner evading a coyote trap.

Re: Clever quote testing

extension the duty to eventually do some magic here. No need for any "Extension magic", if only the post_id would be referenced. If a user is renamed, the new name will show up. If a user is deleted with posts retaining, the quote would show "Guest" or the former username - depends on the implement...
