So by having this enabled - my forum is compliant with GDPR, depending on any relevant wording changes?
Or, are there any other steps as a forum owner that I will need to follow? I notice a lot of forums, including this one, that don't have anything this significant for GDPR compliancy.
In any case, the data protection regulation must contain everything that is used and offered as well as needed in the forum.
For example, I read on a legal page that you are considered commercial as soon as you insert test reports or link to this in your forum. Why in this case, then in the data protection regulation should definitely follow a notice in this regard. That this is a non-profit forum, that the test reports only serve for comparison and information for the members, so that they don't have to search the Internet for long and you don't get any commissions, discounts etc. from the various companies.
In any case, it is better to cover all possibilities.
The regulations seem to be quite different in some countries.
In the Extensions are the conditions normally occurring available in a forum . If the content of a forum deviates from the mass, you have to make adjustments yourself as a forum operator.
