Neither, they decided that no changes were necessary, that they already complied, so there's no need for a new privacy notice.
Who’s they?

From what basis did they come to that decision?

Is there POC - Any DPO?

No idea what you're talking about here - no action was deemed necessary, is all I know. (Yes, it was discussed briefly with the mods, but not in any level of detail).

Re: GDPR and EnglishForum

All that needs to be done is to remove the contact details if a user leaves the forum. The forum itself doesn't have any personal identifying information unless a user posted it themselves in a post. Even is a user name is used elsewhere, I don't see that would qualify.
This user would like to thank Deep Purple for this useful post:

EF don't need a DPO unless they're doing something a lot more sinister in that hollowed-out volcano.

And for good reason, I'd guess. My lips are certainly sealed.

There was that thing with Facebook where they tested some feature, and accidentally set all our accounts, posts, pictures, etc. to public even if our settings said private...

Re: GDPR and EnglishForum

So the European authorities issued their first GDPR based decision...

Quote:
The administrator of a fan page on Facebook is jointly responsible with Facebook for the processing of data of visitors to the page

The data protection authority of the Member State in which the administrator has its seat may, under Directive 95/46,1 act both against the administrator and against the Facebook subsidiary established in that Member State
Source: https://curia.europa.eu/jcms/upload/...cp180081en.pdf

Quite an interesting one actually...

Oh, and I've decided I like the Austrians... they ordered Austrian banks to provide historical account information to its users for free.

POC... DPO

POC = Point of Contact


DPO = Data Protection Officer

I've no idea if it's sufficient, but the Privacy Policy / Terms of Use give support@thelocal.se as a contact.

Re: GDPR and EnglishForum

DPO is supposed to be a designated natural person, but I have noticed lots of organisations fudging it by just giving an email address.

Blimey! I love the Austrian's use of the German language. Did not know, they still had the death-sentence though.

How can I delete an account? How about name, can I change?
It's not a real name so no, probably you can't change it, Czechoslovak. Stop using the forum and nobody will care about your account.
Everybody will forget about your questions or your account, don't worry.
