is Notepad++ compliant with GDPR



  • Hi,

    when registering, I was forced to consent to 2 conditions (data processing, receive emails)

    This is very annoying, I had to create a fake google account just to be able to register here.

    I’m not OK about these consents, and being in Europe, GDPR should protect me and this site should not force me to these consents.
    2 years when we implement GDPR requirements for our websites, our lawyer cleary said we cannot force people registering on our website to accept emails or to force people to register with a social media account, due to privacy concerns.

    I wonder if Notepad++ even care about GDPR



  • @Matthieu-gabrielli ,

    You registered for the forum, not for Notepad++. Notepad++ does not require registration. There is no requirement that you register a forum account to use Notepad++.

    If you would like to make use of the forum, then you have to use an OAuth provider for your security. If you don’t like their terms, don’t sign up for one, and don’t use the forum. In my 4+ years on the forum, I have received 0 email messages from the forum. The only “personal information” that it gathered from whatever you put in your OAuth-provider account was your user name and enough to fill out your profile; you can then edit any piece of information in that profile that you want.

    If you don’t like those restrictions, then don’t use the forum.
