I don't believe you need to worry unless or until NZ implements its own GDPR. It can only be enforced within the EU for companies based in the EU as far as I'm aware. It is an administrative nightmare for companies here in the UK, even my wife had to sign a form at her hairdressers yesterday to consent to them holding her phone number. Explicit permission is required by all UK organisation (not just commercial companies) if they wish to hold ANY personal information on any individual and they have to be able to demonstrate that this is held securely. There are exceptions from registration like some clubs etc but they still need to follow all the guidelines and processes and document everything and have explicit permission and restrict access to the information on a need to know basis! I guess Chris will be jumping through some hoops over the forum as it is run from the UK.

And the only thing that gets me is the emails with click to say yes on ( that's a No No as far as I am concerned) this should say login to your account as normal and click yes

I think you find it is much wider in scope than just EU companies operating within the EU....

Who does the GDPR affect?
The GDPR not only applies to organisations located within the EU but it will also apply to organisations located outside of the EU if they offer goods or services to, or monitor the behaviour of, EU data subjects. It applies to all companies processing and holding the personal data of data subjects residing in the European Union, regardless of the company’s location.

yes, that is the problem
but its only about personal data (i.e not weather data)
but even storing a person's name is personal data
there is no personal information about a user of WD stored though
ie. you do not enter your name/address, age or anything anywhere

that sort of information though is only stored on the actual customers PC
is this more about where you store customers personal data on say a companies data base, or in the cloud, etc ?

Guess you are correct on that.

You do store their Name and email address when they purchase WD?

I do get an email from Paypal that has the user name and address
but from what I understand, since they are gathering that info initially, Paypal are the ones who have to make sure they have that customer personal information secure
its not up to me to make sure that they are adhering to the rules...from what I understand
?

Do you keep that email or delete it? I would think if you keep it, it could apply to you.

I can easily delete it

its of no use to me anyway
more information here
https://www.fsb.org.uk/resources/are-you-gdpr-ready

its more about sensitive personal data other than more publicy available public data (name and address)

just for good measure I have now deleted the emails of orders
and will do so each time I get one from now on, just to be safe

more of a worry is I have read where a Lawyer can contest your Business practices around this
and serve you, and you  need to then pay their fees

Maybe I need to put a statement on the purchase page that no personal information is stored?
