Not another GDPR advocate. It's his database. He can do whatever he pleases.What is the status of the community the database is attached to? Do users know you are selling? I imagine some users may be upset if they find out their data was sold without them knowing about it.
This is my problem with people like you: Every time there's a sale of databases and "information." You freak out. Why? Because you think that GDPR protects you? No, it doesn't. Maybe in Europe. But in United States, we can do whatever we want with the database.@Carlos X yes it is his database, however if the database is not tied to an existing community, how would he use the database to promote a new community? I'm pretty sure if he were to send an email to all members advertising the new community he would be violating the CAN-SPAM act since these people never gave the new owner permission to email them.
I don't see much value in a database without an active community, simply from the standpoint that you don't have permission to email those users.
If you want the content of the community that's great and there's no issues with that, but you have to be careful with the user data and reaching out to users who didn't give consent to be contacted by the new community.
THat's the EU for youGDPR is stupid
What niche and what’s the status of the community the database is attached to, is it live?
How old is this Database? Is this only being sold once and never been sold before?
