I've been trying to look into this whole bureaucratic legalistic EU nonsense too, and while the ideals behind the GDPR are highly laudable it's going to be close to impossible (especially for legacy systems which are no longer in development) for a lot of the web to become complaint.

On my own portorleans.org site for example I use the phpBB forum software, partly as a low-traffic bulletin board system for very infrequent questions (most people seem to use Facebook these days) and partly to push my own content onto other pages in a blog-like manner (such as News posts, etc.) However phpBB does not encrypt its SQL fields such as username, email and IP address (although it does hash passwords) so technically I guess the whole thing is non-compliant until such time as it does - whenever (if ever) that might be.

I've decided that from 25th May I'm going to have to block all access to my site from EU countries unless the user explicit consents to continue based on the site's Privacy Policy (which I've tried to write in plain English, which is something that the GDPR encourages and I fully support), but I've no idea if that will be enough.

It's a nightmare for a sports club I run on my own with over 100 members who sign to join my club then the national body. Am thinking of closing the club and just making it a pay and play session, not collecting any info, just posting info on Facebook. Hopefully bypasses this.

I wonder if the GDPR bureaucrats living in their fantasy ideal world see the irony in the fact that they are pushing relatively self-contained and private operations into using FACEBOOK to "improve" their users' privacy...

... and that is why it becomes so frustrating

I am currently avoiding reading a 68 page document that is trying to make this apply to my work - it has weblinks inserted, so I am now on page 9 after 3 hours. I have dibbed as an avoidance tactic. Doing my box in but I am the person responsible in the end

Am at the flippant point of- everyone having a number, and nobody knowing what that number is - think that encapsulated GDPR in just a line!

The document I was sent said you can be fined 10 million for non compliance!

I've been idly musing about the fact that the rules now appear to include photos of yourself within the category of "personal information" that EU citizens can request to have purged.

First, this would appear to be in direct conflict with British copyright law which states that it is the PHOTOGRAPHER, not the subject, who holds the rights to any image.

Second, think of all the people in the background in any holiday pictures, trip reports, photopass shots, etc. If one EU citizen who happens to be clearly visible in the background decides that they want all photos of themselves purged from the internet, could this new new law be stupid enough to even try to enforce that? <head explodes>

A little over a week to go now. Any idea when we will have access to these (apologies if I've missed them):

- Creating an easy access facility for members to see exactly what personal information we hold about them and to outline the process for change or removal of personal information.

-Changing our Terms of Use, Site Rules and Privacy policy. Please refer to these regularly as they may change to comply with GDPR and any additional data protection laws the UK may pass as we leave the EU.

-Creating an optional opt-in facility for things like marketing, offers, newsletters, etc.
