  • New GDPR legislation

    Given the new GDPR legislation can you still justify your "WE WILL NOT EDIT/DELETE YOUR POSTS/ACCOUNT*" policy? This would appear to be a clear breach of the new Europe wide ruling.

    Hi Matt.

    I'm not entirely sure, but having briefly researched this I think that we're OK, since the forum provides anonymity for its users.

    Only the moderators have access to any 'personal data', and this only includes an email address.

    Perhaps Oversharedude can provide a more detailed answer.
    Just because someone's by your side, it doesn't mean they're on your side.

      On further investigation, I believe Reg^^^ is correct. This forum doesn't collect personal data other than email addresses. Interesting.

        GDPR is with respect to marketing.
        So, no it doesn't apply to a non marketing forum.

          I'll review the requirements of both the Relationship Forums and vBulletin, the platform which it's hosted on, to ensure we comply.

          We don't collect / sell personal information, because everyone is supposed to be anonymous by their own discretion.

          I will concede that the "will not" rule is a bit old school and is probably due for review anyway

              The GDPR legislation offers anyone the right to erasure, whether or not you consider their information be publicly available or not. They can request it be deleted from within your organisation and you have 30 days to action any request or you open yourselves up to prosecution. GDPR also considers usernames to fall under the domain of personal information, as do forum posts as they can reveal gender/sexual orientation/ethnicity or any plethora of personal information. Making it part of terms and conditions that it's your own responsibility to not reveal information doesn't release the forum owners from their responsiblities under the legislation. Any erasure requests will need to be honoured.

                And staff have been advised to do so.

                Also, (not having a go at you for this) can you quote your source please? As an Australian, I haven't had much to do with GDPR so I want to find a reputable source to be guided by.
                And I don't just mean "this is what I read so this is my interpretation" - I've been trying to find specific material which references forums so if you have anything that would be good.

                  Also, if I've missed anywhere that says "we don't delete your shit" let me know so I can update it.
