Help wanted for GDPR compliance

So Quaddicted and QuakeWiki need a privacy policy and all that. I could use some help from anyone experienced or enthusiastic about that. Post here if you are willing to invest time and sweat into it and prepare to hold my hand. I would create a new subforum for coordination if needed. Thanks!

Re: Help wanted for GDPR compliance

This is a serious, scary issue and I need competent help on it. Otherwise it will be good bye to these sites to protect my personal safety.

Re: Help wanted for GDPR compliance

I assume you are not running Quaddicted as a business. All I see is information for businesses. I'd be happy to pitch in $ for you to hire a consultant.

Feel free to look at the Doom Wiki and perhaps contact Quasar.

Re: Help wanted for GDPR compliance

I'll definitely second what Gez said. For the Doom Wiki, we have basically copied the WMF's privacy policy, with a couple of additions we felt were necessary due to differences between the way we run things and the way they do (for example, they don't allow video embedding from YouTube on Wikipedia, so that's an example of something we need to spell out).

Re: Help wanted for GDPR compliance

Thanks you guys! I'll try to adapt the Doom Wiki page for Quake Wiki but I guess we also need all that cookie warning stuff?

For Quaddicted it's more complicated, considering the file archive where personal details can be in every zip, etc... :\

Re: Help wanted for GDPR compliance

Any personal information placed in the text files for the mods that are archived there was volunteered by the people who wrote the text file and send it for archiving there. It's entirely under users' control. Worst case, allow people to contact you to edit hosted files to remove information they'd want to see removed, if they cannot already update the files by themselves. From what I see on the public browsing interface, the "author" field can be pretty much anything (including a team name), the "homepage" field doesn't have to be filled, and none of the other fields appear to contain personal information.
