Now that the GDPR is in effect in the EU we have to do a little song and dance to make sure everyone is aware of the data that we use, and give consent for us to do so...

If you have not already discovered, the next time you HG to our grid, you will be presented with a popup telling you that you do not have access to your destination region, with a long link attached ... Don't freak out, this is what we are doing so you don't have to go out of your way to get authorized per the GDPR. Now we know that Firestorm does not let you click on the link directly, so you have to right click to open in your web browser, so after you do that, you will see a page with the following text.

"Authorize HyperGrid Avatar


GDP regulations take effect starting on May 25th, 2018.

This new legislation requires all companies offering services to members of the European Union to specifically ask for permission to store and use your data.

There is some data regarding your avatar that is required to be held by our system to maintain function, for you and the avatars you may interact with.

Without your permission we cannot allow this data to be transferred to our system, and therefore must require you to give us this permission.

Securing, storing your data will only be used for the purpose of your visits here and your interactions with other users, we will not share it with any 3rd party or parties unless specifically required to do so by law.

When you authorize your avatar this will authorize and store your,

First and Last Name
Avatar First and Last Name
Email address (only for local accounts)
Birthdate (only for local accounts)
UUID (for HG visitors)
Current IP Address (this is stored transiently unless needed for a security reason)

I specifically give you my permission to collect and use my data as indicated in the OpenSim Life Privacy Policy and agree to the Terms of Service, also I confirm I am 18 years of age or older."

When thinking about the implementation of the hypergrid GDPR notice we decided that a video showing the process would be helpful. Below is a short video explaining what to expect when teleporting from your home grid to the OpenSim Life Grid using the hypergrid
