Dear IPFS users, developers, community,
first of all I would like to introduce myself, since this is my very first post. My name is Thomas and together with my colleague we developed a small data-science service, where the results from the user’s requests are uploaded on IPFS. Our site will be reachable via IPNS and we will set a DNS Link to “convert” the IPNS hash to a simpler format. This will allow users to access IPFS more easily. Some might not have IPFS installed and will use the Gateway.
Our product is actually finished. So why do I post in “Help” and not “Announcement”?
The problem is the uncertainty of the European GDPR. As a German startup we must follow the GDRP law and the derived rules. More specific: what happens with the personal data (IP addresses)? This can be easily answered if you have a central server. However, our service will exclusively be on IPFS. Some users might access it via the official Gateway, however, we do not know how the Gateway behaves, what kind of data it stores, etc. Shall / must we contact the IPFS developer team to set up a form, where all details are provided?
We would really like to establish a startup and a web service using exclusively IPFS. We are very keen to try this, but are (maybe too much) concerned about the ambiguous new data policy laws.
Best regards from Germany,
