    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?
