Description AlbertJB 2017-02-22 16:28:02 UTC
Hi, I would like to permanently delete my account and I don't see the option, can you help me please?
Comment 1 Daniel Stone 2018-03-16 11:14:53 UTC
There is no option to do so, because it breaks everything you've previously submitted. I appreciate this may not have been clear when you joined, but the privacy policy at the bottom makes it clear that we can not necessarily do so, and why us deleting it wouldn't necessarily be of benefit anyway.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

I don't want to be "bad news" neither but the fact to not allow to delete an account and erase the personal datas linked to that account (such as e-mail etc...) is illegal regarding the GDPR from the European Union which apply to every citizen from European Union regardless the location of the server or the owner of the domain. Beyond the fact that it is ethically what you should do: The personal datas links to an account are not your property and people have the right to delete them from your servers. I invite you to review asap your data privacy policy and practice in order to be compliant with the law (and to have a morally acceptable behavior with datas that are not yours)

We are aware of the GDPR and we are of the opinion that we are not in violation of it.

That being said, one of the reasons we are moving to GitLab is because it does offer a very easy way to anonymise and remove your content, unlike Bugzilla.
