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

Size matters - especially if you don't have a lot of space - and N gauge is the answer!

Mr Sprue

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:

All EU legislation goes through our Parliament and is passed into UK law. So when we leave, this legislation and whole truck-load more, will stay UK law unless/until repealed.

This is due to interpretation of the GDPR by each organisation

Basically, if you want to remain subscribed and there is a link use it

If you now receive an unwanted eMail, simply use the link provided AND the organisation MUST remove you

However, you may still receive eMail depending on your relationship with that organisation
If the content is important, then no link needs to be provided

Sadly I have now found some organisations are getting round this by moving their server from the EU to USA (for example)
Equally, some organisations have revised their website specifically for EU content, by removing any and all tracking scripts

It was all very similar when cookie consent was required previously, and that was swept under the carpet and replaced by a simple notice that there is now a cookie applied
