Relevant logs and/or screenshots
(Paste any relevant logs - please use code blocks (```) to format console output,
logs, and code as it's very hard to read otherwise.)
(You can use
adb logcat command to capture log of you device, when connected to a computer)
Discourse does not have a focus on GDPR compliance as discussed on their forum here The onus is on the forum admins to check for issues if any as the Discourse source code has such violations . There is no chance of a fix from the Discourse site. There are some solutions including forking the source and creating a 'clean and compliant' version, regular cleanup of the db etc. We need to check for better way of handling this issue.
