The biggest problem with "Delete Data", users accidentally delete and then blame us for not being able to bring it back when users are not that tech savvy. This is even more complicated when their data is part of their communication with other users and they are all business transactions.

 

It doesn't have to instantly delete everything when they click a single button - you can obviously send a deletion confirmation email and show multiple warnings that it cannot be undone.

 

You don't have to delete all of it and all at once. Or even to delete it at all. But it must be documented and based on the legal pretenses listed above.

Also the "contractual performance" can probably be invoked in some cases.

But yeah, it's a pain in the ass which is why you should think around it from day one of your product design and only merge "compliant" code.

 

So finally, poor people cannot start internet startups anymore, it is only Rich people's game !!! That is truly GDPR. Funny thing is, poor person with no intention of stealing/selling personal data has to pay 30 millions in fine in case of some mishaps.. and Billionaire also pays 30 millions easily to steal personal data and get away with it.

Well not exactly. While internet giants are able to hide their data malpractices under undecipherable layers of bullshit, the cost for small companies is not so great. I work with a lot of startups and it's true that implementing GDPR afterwards is painful but if you have it in mind from the ground up that's pretty much invisible.

Also the big difference is that in addition to the fine, big violations become penal. Aka you can go to jail, especially if you're a large-scale CEO. So while fairness could be improved, it's a good step forward in my opinion (as a small company)

I don't believe any large-scale CEO will ever go to jail, Facebook CEO & Google CEO would have been jailed already if that was true, they will get out easily.

code of conduct - report abuse
