Just to say, I'm impressed by Howard getting up to code on the new legislation! I've not seen any other webcomic get on that particular privacy thing. It's a real pain to deal with these laws, especially with smaller companies, but the fact that it's getting done is just a bit better overall for individuals not wanting other people to have their data stuffed away forever on some servers to be filched from those with bad security.

Howard put up a news post about it.

The tl;dr even shorter than what he wrote is, if an EU citizen has data about them somewhere, and they want it deleted, (and that data isn't necessary for stuff like doing contracts with them or needed for legal or government matters, i.e. the data is only there to send them marketing junk mail) they can ask to have it deleted.

There's more to it than that, like data security, knowing where you store customer data (what do you mean, 'my data's on the cloud'? Where in the cloud?), what you actually hold and other stuff, but it boils down to public folks getting more control over their data (supposedly) and hundreds of man-hours of work updating compliance policies for every single business in the EU and people who do business with the EU (ie everyone who runs a website and sells stuff).

Oh yeah found it. I like how he put it there and not a mass email, big site popup, or like those people that ring your doorbell and ask if you know Jesus' new privacy policy?
