This is not about private or public data. The definition of personal data is strictly defined in GDPR. It's about data that can identify you as a specific natural person. These can be direct data (name, surname, ID, address details, etc.) or indirect data (eg a description of the person, description of its features, behaviors, etc.).
You should read GDPR and then we can talk.

So if someone gives a phone number, it will be a personal data, regardless of whether it is written in public or PM. If someone will describe that the flowers are colorful, it will not be a personal data even if you write privately in PM (private data) or public in post.

Froddelaar that's right! Not many people understand it.
What we can do to prevent loose posts it's another topic.
Please do not mess with David's topic. I wrote about the GDPR in another thread and invite you there.
viewtopic.php?f=64&t=2419821

If David adds the feature to download and the ability to delete a user account or complete anonymization, it will be fine. But maybe it's too much for one man. There is another extension for deleting users from UCP by themself.
I agree that it destroy the flow of topics, but notice that FB or Instagram user can deletes whole thread which he started including comments of other users.

Major issue tonight. Installed this extension and had setting to not show the pop-up and to prevent clicking on any links. This included the admin control centre. Completely locked myself out of my own forum. Had to restore a previous backup to get access.

Should the administrator not be exempt from accepting the policy? At least I may have been able to get into the admin centre and change the settings.

No, because the Admin is also a user and as such is required to accept the policy. If you had accepted the policy then you would have been able to login.

OK, fair statement. Then maybe the option to disable the 'accept' pop-up and/or to disable 'all forum links' should be greyed out in the Administration Control Panel until the admin has accepted the policy to prevent admins from locking themselves out? Or could you make the Administration Control Panel the only available working link?

Posts are not Private Data... My users can ask me to delete, I'll never do it. That would ruin the conversation sequence of the topic and the forum itself.
Basically past posts are history... we can't erase history. ;)

This is great! Thank you, david63,so much for developing this extension. It addresses a majority of the GDPR requirements. The only thing I can see that is missing is the ability to opt out of cookie tracking while viewing the site. Is this something that will be implemented in the future?

That doesn't seem to be the opinion of the EU, and their absurd "right to be forgotten" which is actually expanded and reinforced by the GDPR. It all seems very Orwellian "Ministry of Truth" to me though; if something is true and honest then individuals should not have the right to expunge it from history just because it doesn't suit them or they feel it is now irrelevant.

EU can have whatever views that they want but nobody can make laws retrospective - therefore anything posted prior to these regulations does not have to be removed.

Unfortunately, that's not the case. For example under the EU existing law, which has been around for a few years now, the UK High Court recently banned Google from returning any search results about a crime committed (and tried in a British court case) dating back over 10 years, on the basis that the lawfully convicted person said it was now influencing his current standing. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-43752344 . That's why I think this legislation is Orwellian, it is trying to rewrite inconvenient history. :(

I will never delete posts if someone wants to leave the forum but the only thing I can be forced to is deleting the corresponding IP address. But in the passed I've got several letters from lawyers to hand over an IP address beacuse a poster posted prior knowledge or company-sensitive information... however I never handed over because they need a court order to force me. But what if a poster wants to delete the IP addresses and I can't handover any IP address :?

Does anyone translated the language file and is it easy to do? I have a cookie and privacy page but it needs to be updated to meet the GDPR regulations.
