Just wondering how users are dealing with the GDPR which is becoming mandatory on May 25 2018.
If you have any data on users in Europe, it will affect you.

I had originally intended to add a notice to my terms and conditions along the lines of...

If you don't agree to us keeping your data (although we never share it) you won't be allowed to use the site.

Apparently this is unacceptable as it can't be 'bundled' in with the terms and conditions.

Additionally...

Consent must be informed, given freely and explicit; you cannot just assume it from inactivity or silence.

The fines for non compliance are substantial.

Up to €20 million, or 4% annual global turnover – whichever is higher.

Any thoughts, anyone?

You will be fine as you don't hold personal data.
PayPal handles any of my transactions.

Your fine as you do not hold a name and address.

We just hold the weird bit, user name and location.

A Guy I work with is a GDPR Consultant. I ran it past him and he said I should be fine.

Hope that helps.

Ah, but I do. A lot more than just name and address actually. frown
