Quote from Humphrey »Quote from Feyd_Ruin »I've PM'd each of you individually.
We've heard back from the legal team, and because you did not explicitly Accept the transfer, the deletion of your posts are threads are permanent. I will not be able to restore them. This is in direct accordance with the EU Privacy laws, and not based upon any decision of us or even our owners. Unfortunately, EU Privacy laws are very strict, and we are required to comply with them.
It's not what either of us wanted to hear, but it is unfortunately what it is.
I've PM'd each of you regarding your username, and any old threads you wish to recreate, etc.
so you nuked over 10 years of contribution to some topics like our evaluation card thread without any backups and without any warnings prior to this? like pm or email. i cant express how stupid that is and how much data is lost in that process.
and all that because of ******* greed???? im done here, everything is lost
It's not about greed. We were required by law to do this. The EU digital privacy laws are quite clear on the matter; without your explicit permission we are not able to keep any of your personal data. That's why there were pop-ups and banners warning you that you needed to grant us explicit permission or face account deletion well before this happened. We started the warning messages on December 17, weeks before the deadline.
Believe me, if it were up to us we would have never done this, but legally we had no choice. We're doing everything we can within the limits of the law to make this as painless for everyone as we can.
