Hi ST! 

Funny you should ask...I was thinking of doing a blog post about that soon. We're aware of the upcoming EU GDPR deadline next year, and taking steps to make sure we can offer GDPR compliance. If there are other international privacy rules that shake out of those discussions, we'll keep tabs on those as well.

We definitely have a good percentage of customers with non-US based community members!

Hi ST, we haven't shared our blog post about that yet because our approach is still subject to change (as the EU's interpretation of the rules is also subject to change). As soon as we have something firm, we'll go live.

We're treating this much like COPPA in the past, we're going to provide tools that you will need in order to comply with GDPR as we've interpreted it (you'll of course want to get your own legal opinion for your own use case). And we're trying to have our solution in place prior to the May deadline.

The first step was our recent release which allowed members to delete themselves. A lot of nuance is required because the guidelines don't provide a ton of specifics about social content and how it should be handled when someone decides to leave a community.

Thanks Rosemary. I was also thinking of COPPA with regard to how to approach complying with GDPR. I know GDPR is a lot more complicated, though.
