GDPR Compliance
« on: May 09, 2018, 09:56:53 pm »
Dear all,

We need to make sure that this forum follows the new GDPR regulations by the 25th May 2018.  To do this we need you all to accept the policy that we've put on the forum, otherwise we'll be forced to delete your accounts.

For more information - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_Data_Protection_Regulation

Many thanks for Only Me's help in setting this up.

Any problems them please say so here, or feel free to message myself or the team.
Cheers,
Tank.

I get forced to accept the policy each time I access the forum from a difference device or browser.

Is the acceptance stored as a cookie or somewhere in the database ?  As it seems to behave like a cookie at the moment ?


Thanks

Its a DB 1 or 0 dependant... I've tried three browsers this morning and they don't ask me to re accept it?

I blame the network............ I'll pop over and turn your screen off for you.. :D

Thats odd.

A number of times yesterday evening you may have had to click the policy a few times whilst we were setting it up.... this has been rectified and this morning onward multiple clicking shouldnt be the case.

For some reason I am getting slightly disorientated about all this. The past month or so I have had a barrage of bloody emails warning of GDPR and that I must act or have my details deleted from various databases.

So what do I do? Well I have clicked on links within these emails and only but a few contain a link for me to select to acknowledge and give permissions on my personal data.

As for the rest I fear a lot of information I receive in my mailbox is going to cease purely because a simple link saying "Click here to agree" or what ever wasn't there for me to select!

And yes NGF I agree to the GDPR as listed.

P.S So what happens when the UK leaves the EU then? :confused1:
