Patreon subs in sterling or euros open GDPR legal liability
Companies anywhere in the world that offer Patreon subscriptions in pound sterling are subject to EU data protection laws, according to a startling Court of Appeal ruling in England and Wales.
In the case, between dual citizen Walter Soriano and Forensic News LLC, Lord Justice Warby ruled that the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation applied to Forensic because the company’s Patreon page allowed signups in sterling and euros. The judge said this showed Forensic was “established” inside a country subject to GDPR.
