Summary 0003712: The user isn't requested (informed) consent for their personal data to be collected/processed by servers
Revision 2019-09-19 12:54 by WubTheCaptain
Description For a while now, I've been reminded of that popup in Transmission and thought, "hey, Doomseeker doesn't have something similar for personal data shared to servers."
I'm quite sure servers running on engines supported by Doomseeker collect and process quite a bit of personal data, including:
  • IP address
  • Chat messages
  • Player name
  • (GeoIP country)

The legal basis is probably legitimate interests. The fact AllFearTheSentinel seems to be negligent of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 ("GDPR") is indifferent to Doomseeker.
Master servers may also collect or process personal information.
Maybe we could help a little bit with that, at least as far as it goes for the primary feature of Doomseeker (contacting master servers). As far as I know, the "Welcome to Doomseeker" first time configuration popup makes no mention of this and queries master servers immediately without the user's acceptance. Or at least disclaim Doomseeker developers don't operate (all) the master servers or game servers.
