Reviews

  • Pros: 

    Quite nice looking

    Cons: 

    Bad practise

    I'm sorry but allowing anyone to display a GDPR Compliancy badge with no verification whatsoever seems to me like a complete opposite of the GDPR spirit.

    Pros: 

    none

    Cons: 

    all of them

    This seems not in keeping with the spirit of GDPR compliance. When anyone can just display a badge without any verification, it only serves to obfuscate the issue. If a site is indeed GDPR compliant, there should be no need for a badge in the first place.

I'd like to elaborate a bit on my negative review. The GDPR is a fantastic opportunity for our industry to build trust between companies and end-users. It sets up a technical and legal framework that every company has to follow. In a way, we all play according to the same rule, now. Encouraging the display of a GDPR compliant badge like this one will just slams the trust when one of your clients will do something completely irresponsible... Plus you're serving this badge from your server, meaning you're collecting IP addresses, cookies... That's not very GDPR friendly.

@rbessuges Hi Romain, we’re hosting the image source to make it easy for developers to simply copy-paste, however you’re free to save the image on your own server if you like. We don’t collect any IPs or Cookies... what made you think so?
Romain Bessuges@rbessuges
@ynotrusso You're at least collecting IPs, in your server logs (that's an obligation in EU). And about cookies, just because you don't, doesn't mean you won't.

@ynotrusso This: „Can I redistribute these badges? No. If you'd like to share these badges with the world, please point to the original source (this page)?”
Tony RussoMaker@ynotrusso · CEO of Polydone
@llabball Meaning, don't create a page full of this badges to share them (or claim that you made them yourself), instead point to the original source. This point is about re-distribution.

Not feeling it. Broadcasting that you’re GDPR compliant isn’t something really to advertise. You SHOULD be GDPR compliant. It’s not like a bonus optional extra. Everyone should be GDPR compliant and these badges just aren’t necessary. On the flip side, all it takes is one idiot who is NOT compliant to use this badge and then the whole exercise is meaningless.

@mickc79 Every company in the EU, but not outside the EU. When you browse the web for vendors, you come across lots of products from all over the world, so identifying which ones are GDPR compliant instantly from their website makes your life easier when deciding which vendors to consider.

@ynotrusso but how many will ACTUALLY be GDPR compliant? This badge counts for nothing, really.

Well, this seems like a solid way to collect those backlinks. 😜
Tony RussoMaker@ynotrusso · CEO of Polydone
@ezekgabrielse not mandatory but appreciated :)
Thomas Mester@hotgeart · Freelance
You're showing the badge, but you're not compliant yourself...
Tony RussoMaker@ynotrusso · CEO of Polydone
@hotgeart We've done extensive work to make sure we are GDPR compliant. What makes you think otherwise?
