    You've probably noticed a lot of emails from web sites that you use informing you that they have recently revised their privacy policies. This is because the Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will become enforceable on May 25th. GDPR is an EU law that applies to any web site that provides online services to EU citizens. While Tech Support Guy is located in the United States, we have many members who are located in the EU.

    We respect your privacy. We have never sold your personal information to third parties and never will. We use your personal contact information to allow you to contribute to this site and to notify you of posts. You can read our full Privacy Policy here: https://forums.techguy.org/help/privacy-policy

    For more information about GDPR, see here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_Data_Protection_Regulation

    Feel free to reply here with any questions or contact me directly.

    Thanks for using TSG!

    When I tried to accept the second page of terms, I got an error message something about the site was expecting a POST request.

    As a side annoyance, I had just written a four paragraph reply to a new thread. I got the TOS acceptance page when I tried to post my reply. When I went back to the page with the thread, my reply never posted and it was not in the editing box.

    I had to accept twice before I could continue.

    Ugh! Sorry to hear that. I did some testing in a few browsers and didn't get any errors, but I didn't think to try while posting. Hopefully we won't be updating the terms very often. ;)

    Yup, that's correct -- if you read it carefully, one is the Privacy Policy and the other is the Terms. You'll find both under the Help menu at the top if you ever you ever want to review them.
