Re: How can I comply with EU Cookie Law?

For both Eve Community and Hoop.la, we've provided sample wording that you can insert into your Terms of Service to support your compliance efforts. Remember, if you're serving third party ads that use cookies, you'll need to include dislosures for those as well. You can find the sample wording, and a larger explanation of the cookie law here: http://company.socialstrata.co.../content/EUcookielaw As an additional resource, we recommend Cookie Control, a service that will handle compliance as...

Preparing for the GDPR (EU Privacy Regulations)

Rosemary O'Neill ·
As you may (or may not) be aware, the EU last year passed a strong set of guidelines aimed at protecting individual data privacy rights. Those guidelines are called “GDPR,” or General Data Protection Regulation, and they apply to any entity who collects or processes identifiable data from EU citizens (in short, almost everyone). There are a few primary principles: Users must be notified specifically whenever data is being collected from them. Users have the right to delete or export the data...

#3 "request deletion of all of their content by the admin" is a problem for message threads where a user's content is critical to the rest of the user's messages in that thread. They should not have the right to ruin other people's contributions if their post is important or replied to. What I would suggest is that they have the right to remove their NAME from posted content, not the content itself, in order to make their content anonymous. At our 'lesson' content site, we view all posts as...

That item is a "request" by the member for the admin to delete their content. You can refuse to delete their content, if you feel it's within your rights. We're just providing the mechanism that will support compliance with GDPR; what you choose to do with it is your decision as the owner/admin. Unfortunately, when technological solutions are legislated, they don't always think of the consequences for all scenarios. Sadly, online communities were not really given deep consideration when...

Hi @Lynda ! We aren't currently planning on making any changes to the notification system in Hoop.la as part of the upcoming GDPR changes. I'm not aware of any specific requirements in GDPR related to email delivery or opt-in. Here's the list of the key changes being introduced by GDPR: https://www.eugdpr.org/key-changes.html Hope that helps!

Hi @Brian Lenz thanks for getting back to me so quickly. The issue I'm talking about is the consent provision. From what I understand, GDPR is the oppposite of CAN-SPAM - meaning people need to give a specific opt in (unless the use qualifies as legitimate use) rather than opt out. Right now on the registration form there's no specific way people can opt in to receive communications, is there?

Hi Rosemary, will Social Strata be adding a feature for people to opt-in to emails? Our CRM is adding this feature so we can be compliant with GDPR.

@Lynda , I don't see GDPR as being related to CAN-SPAM. GDPR deals with privacy and processing of personal data. Part of that is the consent provision you mentioned, but that's about consent to collection of personal data, not specifically related to communications/email. With the GDPR updates to Hoop.la, you will have the ability to put a description (optionally) on any profile field so that you can give clear purpose as to why each field is being collected. You're right that there is no...

@Brian Lenz Actually GDPR is the exact opposite of CAN-SPAM; it's not related at all! We've been following CAN-spam using what you describe below as our guidepost but I've sat in on sessions with attorneys who are saying we need to get explicit opt-in from people in order to email them with GDPR if we are collecting their data. Our CRM has offered an automatic feature to comply with this requirement, that is why I am asking. And it's due to the consent provision of GDPR. I can DM you the...

I see, @Lynda . We currently don't have any plans to add such a tool, as we aren't aware of GDPR requirements relating to email communication. We can certainly discuss a possible customization if that's of interest to you. Perhaps we should take this conversation to our support channel so we can discuss options, customizations, etc. in private.
