    How is The Media Team committing the forums to GDPR and when will it be implementing the 'download my info' and 'remove me and my data' (finally), required by the legislation?

    I've been wondering for a while about how forums (like this one) will deal with GDPR. It'll be interesting to see.

    Well yes, that's not what I'm getting at :D More whether they are going to be proactive and how (in a similar vein to the questions you've asked in the OP). Working in an industry where data protection is taken extremely seriously, I'm aware that not every company in every sector treats DP equally, hence my interest in how the likes of BT will.

    Would the download/delete it include any quotes under the members name?

    (because it probs should)

    The content of the posts isn't necessarily "personal data" in of itself though, just the user name that ties it to the rest of the user details.

    Can you point to the specific bit of legislation that requires those two features?

    Just realised this prevents me from taking the 25th off. My 21st is on the 24th and due to the 28th being a bank holiday I was hoping to get a 4 day weekend. Bloody EU

    So does that mean there will be a delete account and download data function?

    It won't be a magic button but there will very likely be a process to have it done.

    I was thinking the same thing! Traditionally, something non-routable like .local is better - or even example.com (or .net, or .org, or whatever), which will actually accept emails but dump 'em to /dev/null (at least, that's what you're told...)
