We plan to upgrade the Einstein@Home Web site this coming week in order to deploy new features that make our project more GDPR compliant. To that end users will see some new options that I will summarize here.

New users may only create an account by registering through the Web site. After your account is created, you may connect to Einstein@Home using a client. We recommend to always install the latest BOINC Manager to ensure compatibility with the current and upcoming changes.
Existing users will be asked to consent to our privacy policy and forum guidelines upon their next website login.
There is a new privacy option: Do you consent to exporting your data to BOINC statistics aggregation Web sites? This is set to 'No' (disabled) by default. You may enable the feature in Account -> Preferences -> Privacy.

Sites that aggregate project stats, such as BOINCstats, may not function for you if you do not enable this option.
These features are already in place on our test project: Albert@Home.


In order to make the transition easier, there will be a two week period after the Web site is updated but before the statistics export option goes into effect. This grace period will end on December 17th. Users should still go to the privacy preferences page, and enable statistics exports in preparation of the new policy.

PS - Some other BOINC projects may also require users to consent to statistics exports soon. This means you must enable a similar statistics export option on their respective Web sites.

Update: 2018-11-29 - The changes to the Web site have been rolled-out. The statistics export option will go in effect December 17th.

Wer also Wert auf externe (also auch unsere) Statistiken legt, sollte hier den opt-in wählen, default ist deaktiviert!

Das bedeutet, dass man die Statistiken an sich trotzdem in die Tonne kloppen kann, weil es wohl die Mehrheit der User gar nicht merkt, es sie nicht interessiert oder sie das aus Angst/Unkenntnis so lassen. :(

Ja korrekt, da werden wohl viele, besonders natürlich inaktive Nutzer fehlen...
