GDPR and Mozillazine?

Talk about stuff specific to the site -- bugs, suggestions, and of course praise welcome.

Unless I missed it, haven't seen anything here yet specifically related to implementation of the rather burdensome new GDPR regulations, such as perhaps a new or updated privacy agreement to accept or not (not sure there was anything in effect pre-GDPR), which some boards seem to have prepared. As I'm wondering about the effect of GDPR on small to medium sized boards, I am curious to know how Mozillazine is dealing with this.

MozillaZine is independently owned by a single owner/admin who has been generous in still keeping this site up and running as is even after he started working for Google years ago on Chrome development stuff and such.

When ever something affects a Mozilla product or site, Mozilla is quite open about it. So far there has been no mention of GDPR at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/forums as this section is for the SUMO site and https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/ is for support where there are some ten threads mentioning GDPR.

Thanks for the links, but my question was focused more on how Mozillazine, not Mozilla, is dealing with implementing the GDPR. Asking because a quite small board with quite limited resources (far less than this site) of which I am a member, is not quite sure how to proceed, or to what extent eveything GDPR needs to be complied with. Your experience with what steps you've needed to take might help shed some light on that.

I mean if Mozilla does not seem concerned with GDPR and SUMO then the mZ owner kerz is likely to do little or nothing in relation to GDPR.
