Re: [EP-tech] GDPR and the "Request a copy" buttonn

Hello Laszlo,
Many thanks for your interesting reply. In terms of the data not being kept, I note that https://wiki.eprints.org/w/GDPR states:
Request a copy Dataset
This collects an email address and a reason for requesting the document. Without intervention this can be stored indefinitely.
Have you therefore set your own instance of EPrints not to store the data - or how do you monitor when the requested paper has been forwarded or rejected?
With thanks and best wishes,

Dear Nicola,
according to my understanding, GDPR is relevant only if you KEEP the data.
In this case the data is not kept, only during the time it is necessary to forward the requested paper (or reject it). In this case GDPR is not relevant and gives no legally binding obligations.
Hope this helps.

I realise that each institution makes a decision on which of the 6 legal bases it chooses for each of its processing activities - so I'm interested (on or off-list!) to know what colleagues think, and / or what you have stated in your privacy notices!
