With only a couple of dates to go until GDPR comes into force, companies are scrambling to comply. However some are doing terrible jobs!

Would you recommend this product?

This project is petty and insulting. You could've built something to help people instead of shitting on companies - some of them even DO comply with the GDPR but you just didn't like their changes (e.g. Razer).

⚠️ Worst of all: your website is NOT GDPR compliant. 👎

It doesn't have a Privacy Policy and breaks GDPR compliance by sharing personal data with FOUR different third parties: Twitter, Cloudflare, Google Fonts, Google Tag Manager (analytics).

Your "GDPR Hall of Shame" is the prime example of what should be on the GDPR Hall of Shame.

Pros:

Potential to showcase websites that intentionally don't comply or abuse data privacy.

Cons:

Petty, apathetic towards these companies, founder clearly doesn't understand the GDPR (website is not compliant with GDPR).

Why is it Owen's job to help companies, who had two years to be GDPR complaint, become GDPR complaint? But thank you for standing up for corporations, they definitely need it.

Why side with the companies on this?

this product is the opposite of product hunt. Where product hunt tries to highlight good things.

This aims to highlight and mock what it deems to be bad.

Pros:

none

Cons:

mocks companies for moving mountains to comply with a new very broad very strict regulation. While this website violates that regulation

Moving mountains, huh? The companies shouldn’t have build these mountains in the first place. It’s fair that they get now a share of their medicine

It's clear that you don't really understand GDPR, and the complexity of it, when creating a site like this.

Petty.

Pros:

People with no clue reviewing something they don't understand

Cons:

All of them

GDPR is the largest attack on the free internet since SOPA. It places huge liability onto small businesses and entities, with arbitrary consequences, regardless of location. GDPR divides our internet and our society, while we're literally laughing our free and open internet away.

Pros:

none

Cons:

If there is anything to shame, it's the bill itself.

Would never use Razer mouses anymore. Why would A MOUSE need to know any of my personal date to work?

Pros:

Mocks companies which don‘t care about me. Also, it’s funny.

Cons:

None.
