I'm afraid that I have to come again with the imprint-topic.
It's quite crazy, but GDPR is blocking me starting the shop.
first of all, thank you very much for spending the time for your extensive answer. From the perspective of common sense I agree with you completely.
You say, I don't handle with users confidential data. But what about the "Facebook verdict" from the EU COURT (Grand Chamber):
http://curia.europa.eu/juris/document/d ... cid=296736
where they decided:
"... such data must be interpreted as meaning that the concept of ‘controller’ within the meaning of that provision encompasses the administrator of a fan page hosted on a social network
They don't say "Facebook", the say "social network". And a fan page ist often used for making business. Driving a shop on CAS is also making business. I'm afraid that a shop on CAS could be treated in the same way as a fan page on FB.
Thanks for raising this. Facebook is a completely different entity to us. When you invite a user to 'Like' or interact with a Facebook page, Facebook collects data on that user far surpassing an email address and then actively sells it on to a client base so that those clients can then use that information to target advertising to the user. So when using Facebook and inviting a client to interact with that page if that user is not already on Facebook then you are effectively enticing them to go onto a platform where the aforementioned occurs. Furthermore, and what this case is particularly pertinent to is the paragraph below
'Fan pages are user accounts that can be set up on Facebook by individuals or businesses. To do so, the author of the fan page, after registering with Facebook, can use the platform designed by Facebook to introduce himself to the users of that social network and to persons visiting the fan page, and to post any kind of communication in the media and opinion market. Administrators of fan pages can obtain anonymous statistical information on visitors to the fan pages via a function called ‘Facebook Insights’ which Facebook makes available to them free of charge under non-negotiable conditions of use. That information is collected by means of evidence files (‘cookies’), each containing a unique user code, which are active for two years and are stored by Facebook on the hard disk of the computer or on other media of visitors to fan pages. The user code, which can be matched with the connection data of users registered on Facebook, is collected and processed when the fan pages are opened. According to the order for reference, neither Wirtschaftsakademie nor Facebook Ireland Ltd notified the storage and functioning of the cookie or the subsequent processing of the data, at least during the material period for the main proceedings.'
But an Impressum, I do need. Would like to have these data "hidden" behind a button instead of presenting them directly on the profile page. At least it must be possible to use multiple lines in the existing text box or the box should provide clickable links.
