No. The same are just an email and nickname because these are required by phpBB, but the owner / admin can collect other data - I use additional fields in the profile and this is personal data. Everyone can gather there what he wants, for example, date of birth, surname, illness.
No, if the information about consents is stored in the database, the technical solution of the extension does not matter.

Over the past year we've shared how we are preparing to meet the requirements of the GDPR, the new data protection law coming into force on May 25, 2018. The GDPR affects European and non-European businesses using online advertising and measurement solutions when their sites and apps are accessed by users in the European Economic Area (EEA).
Today we are sharing more about our preparations for the GDPR, including our updated EU User Consent Policy, changes to our contract terms, and changes to our products, to help both you and Google meet the new requirements.
Updated EU User Consent Policy
Google's EU User Consent Policy is being updated to reflect the new legal requirements of the GDPR. It sets out your responsibilities for making disclosures to, and obtaining consents from, end users of your sites and apps in the EEA. The policy is incorporated into the contracts for most Google ads and measurement products globally.
We have been rolling out updates to our contractual terms for many products since last August, reflecting Google's status as either data processor or data controller under the new law (see full classification of our Ads products). The new GDPR terms will supplement your current contract with Google and will come into force on May 25, 2018.
In the cases of DoubleClick for Publishers (DFP), DoubleClick Ad Exchange (AdX), AdMob, and AdSense, Google and its customers operate as independent controllers of personal data that is handled in these services. These new terms provide clarity over our respective responsibilities when handling that data and give both you and Google protections around that controller status. We are committing through these terms to comply with our obligations under GDPR when we use any personal data in connection with these services, and the terms require you to make the same commitment.
* Shortly, we will introduce controller-controller terms for DFP and AdX for customers who have online terms.
* By May 25, 2018 we will also introduce new terms for AdSense and AdMob for customers who have online terms.
If you use Google Analytics (GA), Attribution, Optimize, Tag Manager or Data Studio, whether the free or paid versions, Google operates as a processor of personal data that is handled in the service. Data processing terms for these products are already available for your acceptance (Admin → Account Settings pages). If you are an EEA client of Google Analytics, data processing will be included in your terms shortly. GA customers based outside the EEA and all GA 360 customers may accept the terms from within GA.
To comply, and support your compliance with GDPR, we are:
Launching a solution to support publishers that want to show only non-personalized ads.
Launching new controls for DFP/AdX programmatic transactions, AdSense for Content, AdSense for Games, and AdMob to allow you to control which third parties measure and serve ads for EEA users on your sites and apps. We'll send you more information about these tools in the coming weeks.
Taking steps to limit the processing of personal information for children under the GDPR Age of Consent in individual member states.
Launching new controls for Google Analytics customers to manage the retention and deletion of their data.
Exploring consent solutions for publishers, including working with industry groups like IAB Europe.

And I think maybe we will need more changes or improvements in phpBB to be able to display ads.Google wrote: EU user consent policy
Please note: The text on this page will replace the existing EU User Consent Policy on May 25, 2018.
If your agreement with Google incorporates this policy, or you otherwise use a Google product that incorporates this policy, you must ensure that certain disclosures are given to, and consents obtained from, end users in the European Economic Area. If you fail to comply with this policy, we may limit or suspend your use of the Google product and/or terminate your agreement.
Properties under your control
For Google products used on any site, app or other property that is under your control, or that of your affiliate or your client, the following duties apply for end users in the European Economic Area.
You must obtain end users’ legally valid consent to:
* the collection, sharing, and use of personal data for personalization of ads or other services.
When seeking consent you must:
* retain records of consent given by end users; and
* provide end users with clear instructions for revocation of consent.
You must clearly identify each party that may collect, receive, or use end users’ personal data as a consequence of your use of a Google product. You must also provide end users with prominent and easily accessible information about that party’s use of end users’ personal data.
Properties under a third party's control
If personal data of end users of a third party property is shared with Google due to your use of, or integration with, a Google product, then you must use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the operator of the third party property complies with the above duties. A third party property is a site, app or other property that is not under your, your affiliate's or your client's control and whose operator is not already using a Google product that incorporates this policy.
Vanilla phpBB does not have any mechanism to display ads - they are either by an extension or custom coding and totally at the discretion of the board owner, therefore it is the board owner's responsibility to comply with any law appertaining in their country.
Are you sure about that? There are many (possibly the majority) that don't.
Not everybody - only those where the law in their country require it.
Yes - me
Not possible - IP addresses are not accurate plus there is the problem of using a proxy - all IP addresses can be masked.

In my opinion, we need:
1. Additional box of consent for the collection and processing of data for the purposes of the forum's functionality accordance to forum regulations. This is to be the field required for registration. It should contains short descpription about forum regulations with link to full text of Regulation. Currently I have it done as an additional custom field. But this is not technically perfect. This field can be implemented on current register info form. Now this form contains agree and don't agree buttons but this seems not comform whit GDPR regulations.
2. Additional field of consent for sending marketing informations from forum.
3. Additional field of consent for sending marketing informations by biznes partners of forum.
