Ever thought to upgrade that http to https? You might want to check with your attorneys regarding if it helps with GDPR compliance.

Nice update, bug fixes are always welcome.

I also work in IT and see the GDPR as being a good think long term, as it means one set of data protection rules for the hole of Europe including the UK (which makes doing business easier with people in other countries), but a right pain in the short term while we all have to work hard to get things implemented.

Plus Facebook, Amazon and Google should now at lest be more transparent about what they are doing with all our data in exchange for the services they are providing us, which again I think is a good think.

I don't have a problem with us agreeing to allow our data to be sold as payment for a service we are being provided, but I do want the right to have the information corrected if they get something wrong. That way we are not stuck for ever with targets adverts for stuff we can never use.

(and I'm working in IT and big data and have spent lots of time with lawyers and other experts trying to find a manageable way to succesfully implement the GDPR abomination)

A colleague of mine summarized the results of the EU GDPR very nicely: "And China is laughing...". I'm afraid he is right. EU is overregulating itself to death. And I say that despite being pro-EU.

The same for GDPR... do you truly think that Facebook, Amazon and the other bad guys are going to use your data less for scanning you? No, they won't. You now have more legal text that allows you to forfeit their services but for most people this is just not a viable option.

I am abhorred about what GDPR does to the small people. Google proudly announced that they spent 500 man years of effort to become GDPR compliant... do you feel better now? I'm not feeling any better for it.

The only good effort from GDPR so far is that you get out of some newsletters (not even all - the bad guys again just continue spamming you and if I had no life I now probably could try to sue them - but do you truly think that anyone comes out of a European trying to sue a company in the US or the Caimans or Russia or China? It won't unless your pockets are very deep and you have lots of time on your hands).

Just as a final comment on my GDPR position: The ideas behind it are excellent. The implementation is lousy because the law is unclear, murky, unrealistic and threatens 98% of the business owners out there (small businesses that try to survive in the battle against Amazon and others) because they can't afford the legal support that you need to professionally implement GDPR. It's a joke to put up the same complex documentation and legal speak requirements for Google, Amazon and a one-person business with a tiny online shop. And that's what GDPR does.

I don't argue against the right about knowing what happens to your data but the ♥♥♥♥♥♥ implementation is like this whole cookie guideline nonsense... I don't think that the world has become one iota better for that abomination either. We've gotten tons of "are you ok with our cookies?" requests and usually everyone accepts them. Nothing has improved for it.

don't pay too much attention to symptoms, but reasons. look up big data.

@SPQRatae: I think it's frustrating to stop actually making something you like to first read all the legalese that GDPR has, and then make sure that all the necessary things are implemented. It takes quite a while, and all that time could have been used to make the game even better. Of course it's good that it's implemented and that it protects personal information, but for small indie developers it's frustrating.

I don't understand nothing about this regulation. What is all about?

It's funny, USA citizens rejected from the privacy after 9/11 and now call initiatives of the EU to save our privacy - stupid.
