I knew this was coming, unfortunately.
As I was developing affordable apps, the interest kept spiking amongst my clients. Until the point that a single client commissioned N.8 apps.
However, shortly after, I had to deal with one of their Privacy Lawyers who explained how the system infringes GDPR compliance.
Both myself nor the client weren’t planning any fancy data processing mechanism (we didn’t even have Google Analytics installed yet).
However, even just the act of filling a form or saving an item in the user’s favorites seems to be an issue for GDPR.
It seems that the only option to go ahead is to create “empty shells” type of apps, where users can’t create their profile, save anything in their favorites or fill a form. Disappointed.
I might have encountered the wrong client. But I’m overall pissed - not with Glide, of course, but with the massive amount of stringent regulations that we have in Europe that are acting as a liability on developers.
Have you guys faced this issue in Europe before? How did you act?
