    Hi all,

    We are making some changes as a result of GDPR and would like to be as transparent with our community as possible. These are in progress at the moment so this thread will be a running update of what we have done so far and what we plan to do.

    Currently we have taken the following steps:
    1. Upgraded the forum software which makes it GDPR compliant for all new registrations.
    2. Wiped all member's dates of birth from the database, removed requirement on new registration
    3. Remove Google Analytics integration
    4. Removed Facebook Share/Like button
    5. New registrations have to opt-in to receive email notifications (previously on by default)
    6. Removed requirement to say "what you drive" upon registration and how you found SEATCUPRA.NET (the latter not really GDPR, but we don't need the data by default)
    Still to do:
    1. Merge Terms and Privacy from the News site with the forums
    2. Notify all members of updated final terms and privacy
    3. Review, but likely disable Tapatalk support (as many other large forums have done)

    Scott

    GDPR has hit big at my work as well, can sort of see where they are coming from but it's a massive pain in the butt!

    Good luck lol

    Edit.
    Erm not sure if I'm supposed to reply so delete this if needs be.

    Yes at mine too.

    Good from a consumer perspective though.

    Happy to have a discussion here. No need to delete.

    It's been amazing watching all the emails come through from places I don't want to subscribe to anymore that I can just ignore again lol

    So Tapatalk are going down the john then... Shame, but not that it matters as the website is now much better using mobile view.

    Cheers

    Be glad when its all over my inbox is suffering with all the companies asking for me to be there friend.

    Dont use Tapatalk anymore but just out of interest why may you have to drop them, My understanding of GDPR is that it affected all companies anywhere in the world if they target European clients.
    Also if you do drop them what happens to all the pictures that users have posted via Tapatalk do they carry on working.

    Many have dropped Tapatalk due to lack of confidence in how their member's data is used. I'm unlikely to have time / legal knowledge to know whether they will be compliant enough for us before the deadline. So safest to remove support until the dust has settled. Can always reenable in the future.

    Now the site works so well on mobile it's not as necessary.

    I'd imagine the pictures would stay.

    Site is much better now. But I sometimes still get Tapatalk popups asking if I want to open the page in Tapatalk. How do I stop the popups. Is this something that needs to be updated at your end?

    We've not completely binned Tapatalk (although it's currently broken), they believe they are now GDPR compliant and we've installed the necessary update, however it's bust. @m0rk is going to see if he can fix it when he gets a chance.

    If we can't get it to work we'll remove it so the popups will stop.

    Thanks for the update, do you have the ability to add a notification bar on the home page so you can share this sort of info with the whole site easily.

    I use this on one of the forums I am a admin on as a quick way to tell people when stuff dont work or has been updated without the need to send lots of emails / messages

    Like how you've blocked the forum name to be anonymous, hopefully not because it's a dogging community :think::blink:;)

    No nothing dodgy, just did not think it was right to advertise another site on this one.

    Thanks for the updates.
    The ones where you must read an admin post to continue using the site? Or else!
    That does the job

    There's a setting to enforce all members to accept the updated privacy notice - I think it's a new feature they added - not sure exactly how it works so going to look at that tomorrow, don't want to pee people off, another GDPR email will do that though I'm sure :)

    Should work fine for most. It’s the companies who will totally ignore GDPR or just aren’t clued up who are more likely to (continue to) cause issues.

    Thanks, I'll flag that with the devs who made the changes.
