About the EU GDPR

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679 is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union and the European Economic Area. The GDPR aims primarily to give control to citizens and residents over their personal data.

It became enforceable on 25 May 2018. Because the GDPR is a regulation, not a directive, it does not require national
governments to pass any enabling legislation and is directly binding and applicable.

After May 25, 2018 companies and organisations can only communicate with people who have given their explicit consent.

Every sysop in the past has requested to be listed in the nodelist, otherwise he/she would not be a Fidonet sysop, so the permission of each individual sysop in regions within the European Union as well as the EEA has already been obtained.
Should any of these sysops feel that his/her privacy is compromised by being listed in the nodelist, please get in touch with the appropriate Hub/Net/Region-administrator and either have the entry removed or updated.

As the Fidonet-organisation is non-commercial and does not compile, store nor process sensitive information, the bulk of the GDPR-regulation does not apply to us.

The Fidonet-regions concerned are:

R20 Sweden Finland Denmark
R24 Germany
R25 Ireland
R28 Netherlands
R29 Belgium
R30 Switzerland
R31 Austria
R33 Italy
R34 Spain
R41 Greece
R42 Czech Republik Slovakia
R48 Poland
R56 Net 362 Portugal
R56 Net 530 Romania
