Wouldn't this section of the user agreement apply in cases like this? Forgive my ignorance if I'm wrong.As a user you agree to any information you have entered to being stored in a database. While this information will not be disclosed to any third party without your consent, neither “[Site Name]” nor phpBB shall be held responsible for any hacking attempt that may lead to the data being compromised.
For a noncommercial board, probably not, though even if so, I don't think it would have much publicity.Marek Muc wrote: ↑Fri Sep 11, 2020 8:47 amWell my question was meant to be at a more general level, I guess there are some data protection laws in US as well. I'm referring to GDPR by EU only because I'm most familiar with it.
Edit: I now think I should have been even more general with my question:
Does anyone know a board owner who suffered any legal repercussions due to his board's database leak?
