GDPR: even more protection for your personal data

Post by Shadow on May 24th 2018, 6:37 pm

GDPR: more protection for your personal data

As you may know, the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will enter into force tomorrow, 25 May 2018. This is a European Union regulation which will constitute the reference text for the protection of your personal data. As Forumotion is a worldwide service, the protections offered to our European users will also apply to all other users.

Our privacy policy has been updated in accordance with this new regulation, and various measures come with it on your forums. Very Happy

Privacy policy

Forumotion makes it a point of honour to respect its users privacy, that is why we only collect the data which are necessary for the services proper functioning. This privacy policy explains the purposes of the processing and how to exercise your rights. Please note that the Terms of Use have also been rewritten, so you should reread them.


Situation of new users

This privacy policy, as the Terms of Use will have to be read and accepted by all users who create or register on a forum.

At the creation of a forum:
At the registration on a forum:

Situation of old users

Users who created or registered in a Forumotion forum before the arrival of this new regulation of course will have the same protection. For this reason, any user logging into a forum will have to read and accept the privacy policy, and the Terms of Use he can proceed.

Example:

This window will also prompt the user to confirm his choices about newsletters (see next point).  This window will appear only once (if the acceptance is given), but on each forum where you have an user account.

Exclusive user choices

The main objective of this new regulation is to put the user back at the heart of his personal data processing, by giving him the choice. For this reason, we want to be sure that all users of Forumotion forums have made their choices: what emails will they receive? from whom? what data is used? how? All these questions are answered in the privacy policy, and take different forms in the administration panel:

Receiving forum newsletters

For all new users, receiving the newsletters will need the acceptance of these emails by the user, upon registration. Only the users having deliberately chosen to receive the newsletters of the forum will receive these (this choice concerns indifferently the newsletter sent by the administrator of the forum and the "popular contents" newsletter).

Example:

More specifically regarding "popular content" newsletters, any user already has the choice, in his profile preferences, to receive or not the "popular content" newsletters:



To be sure, in the future, to send these mails only to users who so wish, the next "popular content" newsletters sent will contain, at the top of the mail, a request for confirmation of this choice.

Example:

Impossibility for the administrator to modify these choices

Since the options for receiving mail are closely related to the users' choices, the administrators of a forum can no longer modify these choices in the users' profile. These are no longer editable:



We thank you for your trust and loyalty.

Hello,

There was an external problem yesterday with an ad partner (Rubicon Project) which took time to fix: this ad partner redirected users to empty pages when they try to access their forums... and the Forumotion team didn't send this new feature online. And to dangerous to send it before the week-end. It will be available next Monday only Wink

I have the same feeling as you. So I think this one is still under construction.

Hello,

I believe they plan to put this online on Monday, they didn't want to send it online before a weekend in case there is any bugs or problems, they want to ensure they are on hand to deal with them.

Yes we had a problem before this went live so we had to fix them before putting this online.
we have been told that we hope to have everything installed on monday but as you know this can take time installing it and sometimes things don't work 100% right so it's better to add it when we know we have more time to fix things as they show up.

don't worry We should have it up and running as it should be by the start of next week.

Of course I didn't read that you're from Estonia.

Then, there's no way to do the translations if Forumotion doesn't hire a translator for your language. Maybe you can contact a staffer from this forum (as it happened with this topic and this other one in the Bulgarian language) and translate it on your own, so it will be translated to your language in every Estonian forum Wink

Best regards.

You can put the translations here. Maybe the Forumotion staff will take them in account Grin

I am confused. I didn't customize the template. Am I suppose to do anything and where can I find the Privacy Policy template on the forum?

Hello @Guardian-Angel

The template "Privacy Policy" is not available in the list of templates. We managed a template for desktop and mobile versions but users can't see, modify or customize it.
