Can someone please delete my account?

Recommended Posts

That's correct. We don't delete accounts on this forum, though we could ban it if you request so that no one, including you, could use it.

I'm curious though... As far as I know, according to EU gdpr law, people have the right to demand deletion of any data related to them (and that might include email address, username etc?) but since Kerbal forums are not hosted in the eu, does it still apply?

I'm asking because I've already encountered same situations on local forums and administration had no choice but to accept and delete an account on demand.

Depends if the account in question is owned by a citizen of the EU or not. 

If the website isn't run by Europeans or in a EU country and the account owner isn't from the EU or in the EU, they should be absolutely fine because it hasn't nothing to do with the EU whatsoever. However, if I (being from the UK) requested this same thing, then I'm not sure how they stand with EU law. I'm fairly certain one would have to send a very serious complaint to the EU to get it looked at...

BUT, I'm fairly sure that whoever is responsible for the forum knows what they're doing in relation to the new laws :) Darn good point though!

Let's please not do the EU law thing again. Until we hear otherwise from the legal experts, this forum's policy remains unchanged.
