GDPR compliance notice

GDPR compliance notice By Charlie Stross by Charlie Stross (

Once I receive a GDPR request I will comply with it promptly, but bear in mind I'm a human being with a day job, and this blog is a peripheral pursuit. If your requests become an irritant (e.g. if you request multiple fiddly comment deletions or edits across multiple threads) I may just erase all your content and ban you from the blog in future. (GDPR gives you a right to be forgotten; it does not impose an obligation to be remembered.)

I hope to get Charlie Stross’s permission to use his text as a staring point for my own GDPR compliance notice.
