    Admin,

    I see you have not applied the new GDPR privacy changes to SB and this needs to be done urgently considering 90% of the users here are European based.

    Regards.

    GDPR will affect every company that uses personal data from EU citizens. If you’re collecting email addresses and send email to subscribers in the EU, you’ll have to comply with GDPR—no matter where you’re based.

    Do you collect email addresses? You are a Data Controller.

    Do you use the email addresses for any reason? You are a Data Processor

    Every forum in the world probably falls under these 2 items alone.

    This is not true. EU law can not be enforced outside their own borders. If the United States passes laws that forces compliance or comes up with their own version of GDPR, we will happily comply with that.

    Members information has always been safe and secure.
