I have not received any GDPR email from Fritzing or the Fritzing forum. Who is responsible. Someone best get on to it pronto.
my understanding is if you have given fritzing.org , or any company for that matter, consent in the past then that consent is still valid. if you no longer want them to have that consent then you should notify them. a majority of those gdpr emails that companies sent were completely unnecessary. existing customers did not need to receive them.
One more email I didn’t need. Especially when they didn’t really say anything.
That is so true. Emails flooding inboxes is not good. But, if I understand it correctly, it is meant to be a declaration of compliance. Maybe pinning a post on the forum would do the trick.
I extracted what I thought is necessary to keep the data hounds at bay:
