I don't think XVM will be going anywhere, but would be nice if they gave us the option to stop xvm showing our stats.

I have proved to several people in the past that it's often quite easy to link a game profile to a RL person.

No, IT and legal departments are rushing around trying to fix stuff which was never broken to start with.  At least if they were DPA compliant anyway.

 

At sysops we recently started to treat those annoying customer emails about gpdr as  "OPP" and forwarded them directly

to our quite unhappy CSO :P

but that is mostly through 3rd party sources where people exhibit that information freely, as this forum for example.

tracking people through images or pixels is old .)

Yay, let's have ANOTHER thread discussing the nature of the GDPR, Wargaming and XVM, 'cause the other one has been so productive.

 

First off, it's your own responsibility to know the law, Wargaming is not responsible for informing you about EU law.

 

Secondly, they are responsible for being compliant with EU law, they have a FAQ on their website, and a new privacy policy ready for the 25th, which you expect  to get presented to you on the 25th.

 

Thirdly, not the bloody XVM crap again...

actually, we had this in different threads now over the past week(s)

 

the correct link is here:

http://legal.eu.wargaming.net/en/privacy-policy-new/

 

 

game statistics is not (sensitive) personal data

a) that data is being generated by WG services themself on their servers

b) one as a player does not own anything at or from WG's services

c) does not contain any data that enables to identify a real person.

 

PS: if you want your personal data deleted, you have to delete your account. quite easy if you ask me. :)

PPS: of course, if your nickname is related to your family name or you use your own face as a profile picture in forums, that's your thing.

 

Pretty much this. They could have put an announcement on ths first page, though.

 

Still interesting it will be how will WG send the data if players would require it: it  that it describes that you have the right to get transparent information about how your data is used, get access to a copy of your data, and request correction and deletion of your personal data. have the right to get transparent information about how your data is used, get access to a copy of it describes that you have the right to get transparent information about how your data is used, get access to a copy of your data, and request correction and deletion of your personal data. data, and request correction and deletion of your personal data.

I see it as a good way to finally get a complete transaction history of my Wargaming.net account. ;)

Well the Data Export function now seems to have become live but they want a phone number asociated with the account for the privilege. Looks like another ticket for CS.

indeed, I had to go through some loops before

to remove that phone number which was canceled for over a year and inaccessible. :)

While a strong password is nice, I'd love to have some other options for 2-factor auth.

PS: and why the hell are WG services not accessible through IPv6?

It's still "data that enables to identify a real person".

Data you voluntarily shared on the forum doesnt count though.

Sorry should have made it clear. When you select Data Export, which has become live, they say you need a phone number associated with the account to give you a copy of the data they have stored on you. I’ll just go through CS instead.

Only to dampen your enthusiasm:

 

With the help of the "Data Export" function, you can download all data about you that is stored in the Wargaming.net system.

The export operation can take up to 30 days. When the archive with your data has been assembled you will be able to download it in the Account Management section.

When the archive is available for download, we will notify you via the email address linked to this account.

 

So, you might have to wait for a while then... :great:

Wow....one can Object to all that as of tomorrow.

 

I have read the privacy policy and do not agree with how you are using my data. How can I stop you from such use?

As of 25/05/2018, you will be able to object.

The Account Management section will give the possibility to object to the processing of your personal data. Before the functionality becomes available, you will be able to express your objections by submitting a ticket HERE and we will pass it to the appropriate department for proper processing.

That happened to a friend of mine, but the injunction and bail conditions soon sorted it out.
