The GDPR (not to be confused with GDFR) does mandate data portability, which even Instagram listened to by introducing a user archive download feature.

Does the Stack Exchange Network also have such a feature?

Jeff Atwood: “We generally don't do preferences”

Gladly, this philosophy does not apply to Discourse, but it would be good if we could download our user data.

    What do you consider to be your user data? Please be precise. – rene Jul 8 '18 at 17:10

    FYI GDPR only applies to personal data, and you can download it in your user preferences. – Sonic the Reinstate Monica-hog Jul 8 '18 at 17:50
  • @SonictheInclusiveHedgehog I'm probably going blind or I am not privileged but where in my user preferences can I download my personal data? I need something with a red free hand circle ... – rene Jul 8 '18 at 18:54

    @SonictheInclusiveHedgehog You mean the personal prediction data? That is not the same as user data and not the same I presume what you get from the GDPR request form? – rene Jul 8 '18 at 19:08
  • @rene Sorry, my mistake. – Sonic the Reinstate Monica-hog Jul 8 '18 at 19:08

While we've always made sure you have access to the data we collect on you in various places, our legal pages do now include a GDPR Request page where you can export, erase, or restrict your data in a simple form that covers everything.
