If you had just woken up from a coma today, here’s what you missed…
For MastermindJam’s GDPR effort, I’m using (affiliate link 👉🏼) these iubenda GDPR tools to make GDPR-compliant cookie policies, GDPR-compliant privacy policies, and also using their system to store proof of consent. 
For MastermindJam, not much changes, really.
Customers of MJ have always had to opt in to the Terms of Service and Privacy policy before signing up, before paying.
MJ customers agreed in those terms to allow their data be shared for the purpose of helping them join a mastermind group. From the standpoint of MJ, if you didn’t want anyone seeing your data, then you weren’t allowed to sign up.
I wonder how many other businesses are taking this approach:
Agree to our terms, or please don’t sign up. 
The more complicated, costly approach is to let customers pick and choose how each piece of personal data is used (granular customer consent) and how it is shared with each third party service your app uses—which, for my app being a serverless app relying upon a dozen third parties, this fine-grained approach would be a non-starter. 
Apps are springing up to make granular customer consent easier for SaaS companies to offer to their customers—Consently is a really amazing example and the one I’d recommend—but there will always be unavoidable overhead with this approach.
If you go to the MastermindJam homepage, and scroll to the footer, on the right, you’ll find two links that open up really detailed docs that list all the apps I partner with, what data they share, and how they all use the data. iubenda made this amazingly simple to accomplish, so here’s that referral link again (sorry, not sorry).
Personal data privacy is one of the biggest reasons I don’t have a free trial on MastermindJam, and why I don’t show member profiles publicly outside of the sign-in protected areas of the app. I don’t want your info to be gathered and used in unknown ways.
Anyway, it’s going to be interesting to see how this all shakes out, and interesting how regulators will enforce all this. 
OK fine, enough about GDPR!
