GDPR: restricting access to project statistics downloads

Hi everyone,

we'd like to announce that we're going to disable anonymous access to our project statistics downloads, becoming effective tomorrow, June 14th at 15:00 CEST. The reasoning behind this move is the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and its obligation concerning the publication of personal information of our users. We've discussed this matter with our community beforehand and found a way that seems to be acceptable for most. Fear not, the following services and projects already registered individual access accounts with us and will therefore be able to gather our statistics data as usual:

  • BOINCstats
  • BOINC Combined Statistics
  • Free-DC
  • GridRepublic
  • Gridcoin

We're also planning to add a new feature that will allow individual users to fetch their statistics data automatically and in machine readable form (presumably XML). We're going to announce that and further related changes as soon as they're ready.

Cheers,
Oliver

Boinc Combined Stats is not

Boinc Combined Stats is not including any of my credits from Einstein@home.  The two previous posts seem to be at odds.  How do I get credit for my work on Einstein.

I'm having the same issues as LOCAL RF DUDE in that my stats no longer include Einstein@home. When will we see credits returned to our accounts?

Hi,I run

Hi,

I run https://boinc.mundayweb.com which has provided customisable user stats graphics since BOINC began.

It would be great if my users could continue to see their Einstein@Home stats. 

Please can I request access to your XML stats files?

Many thanks,

Neil.

Local RF Dude / B. B.

Local RF Dude / B. B. Stanfield: we'll contact BOINC Combined Stats to see what's wrong. FYI, you are getting your credit from us, here at our project. IOW, that's totally independent of any external stats site.

Neil: I'll send you a PM with the details.

Cheers

Local RF Dude / B. B. Stanfield: I can see both your records at BOINC Combined Stats. Can you confirm that?
