WP GDPR Compliance
Hi, we’re building 2 sites based on BuddyPress. We’re in Europe, Germany and now the question came up if BuddyPress is GDPR Compliant… ?
In case you wonder:
GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation and is intended to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union. Its primary aim is to give control back to the EU residents over their personal data.
Why the urgency? Although the GDPR was introduced two years ago, it becomes enforceable starting May 25, 2018.

But most important is that all companies (also US based companies, or any other company based wherever in the world want’s to do business with European Citizens, THE COMPANY must fullfill these laws, or can be tanken to court… . So it is a global problem… .
So I was just wondering how “GDPR Compliant” BuddyPress is and if we’re protected using BuddyPress, or not.. .
I really do hope so, since I really love BuddyPress and if not, we’re actually not allowed to continue using it – which would be a very bad for us… .
So – looking forward to your answer, really hoping hard that BuddyPress is took care of that.
