GDPR & Blocking EU Guests?


I not too long ago chatted with a colleague who’s getting ready to launch a social networking and discussion board website which targets a comparatively slim viewers (for dialogue, for example it’s a website concentrating on coin/stamp collector fanatics.) He was primarily soliciting suggestions on his technical design (which I supplied), however I additionally famous he’s planning to blacklist/block all connections from the EU as a result of GDPR regulation. His phrases of service prohibit customers from connecting from any EU jurisdiction.I have not actually adopted the GDPR mess carefully; it looks like one other authorities directive that’s meant to unravel one drawback, however finally ends up fixing none and as an alternative creates 50 extra…In any case, this challenge is his private enterprise and he simply would not need to take care of any of the authorized headache from GDPR. Nonetheless, blocking a helpful free service from your complete EU simply feels regressive/anti-collaborative to me.Does anybody know if there’s a approach for customers within the EU to waive their GDPR rights with a purpose to use a non-GDPR compliant website? (I believe not, however simply wished to test in case there’s a approach protect their entry?)
