          • Hi there!

            According to the clarification of our product manager, if you don't have any specific information related to the GDPR on your network in such case you are getting covered by this article https://www.ning.com/gdpr/. However, I would suggest you update your terms and conditions anyway, but everything from above is not only about the ToS updates etc if you have any questions about any of the paragraphs Justin has posted, please ask I think it's a good idea to discuss this on the forum with the other NCs.

            Best regards,

            Ning Team.

            • Kyryl,

              Did Ning add the pop up now on my site? Or I need to find whoever did it for me and Thank Them- was it you? hhhmm...

               BIG Thanks to whoever did it!

  • Dear Kyril,

    First of all. The source you quote is a private company. I would like NING to be able to base their policies on legal regulations in the EU as this is one of the major regions that you provide youir services in. 

    Secondly, the article that you refer to is titled : "derogations for specific situations". An informal social community is not "a specific situation" and will not likely to be considered as such by the authorities. 

    Furthermore, which one of the articles in https://gdpr-info.eu/art-49-gdpr/ do you suggest we use to inform our members?

    Lastly, can you explain why NING is not willing to comply with EY regulations? What is so difficult?

    Kind regards,

    Anton Noë

    • Hi there!

      Well, since I haven't been able to find the definition of "specific situations" in GDPR, and since there are no precedents where the social network hasn't been determined as the specific situation you are not able to tell for sure that it's not the specific situation. However, the situation can be specific as depends on the privacy settings some of the profile questions could be available publically, according to the GDPR you have to determine to which countries the personal information is getting transferred, but since the site could be reached from any part of the world and the answers to the profile questions are presented publically, anybody from the whole world could reach that data (which in theory could be determined as the one which is allowing you to identify the person) on top of that in such case you are not able to determin to whom exactly the information is getting delivered (of course member can make his her profile in settings). Just because of that the situation could be determined as "specific" since the member decide which data should be presented publically. And as the site is available in any part of the world (even in countries which do not supply the adequate level of data protection) any person who has the access to the internet can get the access to private data of network member since it was shared by him/her publically.

      The Ning is basically the set of tools that could be used to create the site and process data. It's like if the creators of the programing language would have to comply with GDPR as their language is used by some people to create the functionality which is used to process the users' personal data.

      Best regards,

      Ning team.

      • So you are saying Ning is not responsible to sell GDPR compliant networks?

    • Hi there!

      Update regarding the privacy shield. According to the latest information that has been passed to us, we are going to join Privacy Shield, however, we are going to start the process only when all functional updates would be finished.

      Best regards,

      Ning Team.

  • Thank you very much for joining the privacy shield. This is an essential legal obligation, maybe not for NING but for all your owners in the EU. They could be fined mega huge amounts of money. 

    When will you be registred? What is a reasonable expectation?

    • Hi there!

      The update of Sign-up/Sign-in page and teh addendum related to GDPR should be released today unless any critical bug would be discovered during the last stage of testing. If there would be any issues, the release would be posted on Tuesday.

      Regarding the joining of the privacy shield, when we will be sure that all tech updates working like they should, we will join the privacy shield. Approximately it will take 2 months, maybe less in case if everything would be fine.

      Best regards,

      Ning Team.

      • Our Sign-up/Sign-in page is not updated!

      • Kyryl,

        Yikes! I am at a total loss! Am I supposed to have a "cookie banner"? And Do I need to post the GDPR?

        I like JFarrows pop up but not sure if it is for 2.0...

        Help, Help Please!!!
