The missus and I finally tied the knot. DNA coat and shirt, hers is a vintage job (the dress, not me)

Might be giving information on what's already know, but I had a chat with some coworkers as the company I work for has a large online presence, and was given the following advice;

Here's where I would start with GDPR on the Simplemachines platform.

Step 1: Evaluate the current status of compliance.

The most important pieces of this are records of consent, and an understanding of the type of information that is held by the business. Another important piece is ensuring you are adequately protecting children.

Unless the company is a Not-For-Profit, it will likely need to register as a small organization and pay a $40 Data protection fee.

Step 2: Update your privacy policy
Perhaps the most immediate change required for GDPR compliance is updating your Privacy Policy to contain certain required elements.

It can be super detailed:
Or it can be a little short:

Step 2: Eliminate unnecessary PII to reduce the burden of compliance
In particular, for SimpleMachines it looks like you can stop the collection of IP addresses by modifying /sources/QueryString.php

Step 3: Ask your ICO

Once you have implemented a basic plan, don't hesitate to send questions to your ICO. There are thousands of other companies like yours with questions about implementation. The most likely scenario is not that GDPR is used to bludgeon companies native to the EU, but to protect EU consumers from foreign companies that are less protective of European Citizens' data

Hopefully this can help, even if it's just a little.....

Sorry to hear about your loss, it's never easy losing someone you shared your life with, be it two legs or four.

Echoing Martin's statement, I am hoping to avoid any closure 100%, however Dave is the only one liable. Truth be told, I have been scouring the internet for answers, but all so vague. We've been through a shutdown before and held out until we could be together again, thus just might be another test of our faith. So, you know.....keep the faith

I can't think of any instance in which I would wear these. Not for me.

To be honest, I like Werthers as well, so I'm ok with that.
