What is Disqus doing to prepare for the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”)? 

Disqus has been fully GDPR compliant since May 25, 2018, the ‘Effective Date’ of the GDPR. As part of our GDPR compliance program we have implemented new procedures to obtain your consent for the collection of your personal data both for processing by Disqus and, where applicable, third parties.

If you are a publisher using the Disqus SaaS commenting platform, we require that you take all measures to be compliant with the GDPR as of the Effective Date. This means that you will need to implement a means to obtain consent from EU citizens for the collection of personal data on your website.
