    The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is comprised of 173 Recitals and 99 Articles.

    LHC has decided to provide an "opt-in" method for stats export just like Einstein did.
    Following the implementation of GDPR compliance with BOINC, user consent is now required to export BOINC statistics from LHC@home to BOINC statistics sites, such as BOINC stats.

    To grant your consent, please login to the LHC@home site and update your project preferences. Once logged on to the LHC@home site, please navigate to the Project Preferences page.

    Click on "Edit preferences" and then tick the box on the line:
    "Do you consent to exporting your data to BOINC statistics aggregation Web sites?"

    This will enable continued export of statistics from LHC@home for your BOINC user account. If you leave the box unchecked, statistics should no longer be exported.

    Thanks for your contributions to LHC@home!

    Make sure to check the "Do you consent to exporting..." option.  Otherwise your stats won't be exported.

    Thanks for the heads up PC
     
    IMO this is really Stupid and or Dumb.
    This process as well but the Process can be and should be managed in the BOINC Client Software and not on every Single BOINC Project.
    It should be intergraded in the Client Tool.

    Numberfields has done the same thing too.  Make sure to check the box on your project preferences to allow your stats to be exported to third-party stats sites.
     
    If you want your stats exported, you will need to check the consent box on the project preferences page.

    In a couple days, the stats export mechanism will be changed, and if this consent is not given, then the default will be to NOT export your stats.

    Sorry for the inconvenience, but this was necessary due to the recent GDPR regulations.

    Rascally GDPR!
