well, as i said earlier, i was in favor of a popup window to warn and switch some of the privacy settings... when they are a required part of some features/services.
oh and... to give people choice, rather than deciding for them what is good or what they want... when on earth "having choice" stopped being a decent solution or attitude and slided into the realm of bad unwanted possiblities ?
No it doesn't but one can't claim GOG wasn't upfront with them about how they view public profiles and how they use certain data here. I've already said GOG should comply with EU law (especially GDPR) if that requires making changes, even going as far as using geolocation data to be in compliance.
hey according to one of your earlier post, GOG wouldnt even have to comply with any law, as long as they put things in their TOS...
if people agree to the TOS, they forfeit their right to fall within the scope of any law outside of GOG, right ? :)
also, GDPR is coming 5 years too late if you ask me... and as long as many online service will be granted/left the right to shield themselves behind some "only justice court of our own favorable country is competent to settle up disputes with customers from any foreign countries we however have some local HQ in, anyway"... you can put all the GDPR you want, it wont apply
now, for GOG, recently having switched its HQ to poland (with some "loss" in game licensing and publoishers contacts, as we saw), within EU... i still think they can cleverly word their TOS to legally circumvene the GDPR anyway, so...
GDPR is just a reassuring scarecrow meant to calm down most of the worried folks, but it is less efficient than an actual scarecrow at the task.
