that is not that simple...

For example I use a forum system and have to analyze what data are saved and how long. And of course I would have to offer a system what data are saved and delete everything if requested. All of that would need a lot of time I do not have to analyze and test, in worst case I would even need to program functionality for a hobby website. I assume that many forum owners now have that problem. And nobody really knows what exactly has to be done.
