One of the fundamental roles in GDPR is the Controller, the one that is responsible. One might think that this is the fellow that actually works with the information but that is not the case. The controller and the responsibility comes with the mandate to decide the purpose and means of the processing of personal data (Article 4, point 7). The controller is the the legal responsible throughout the rest of GDPR. The fellow that works with the information just have to oblige to what the Controller have decided.
My node is small, we are about 5 users and we started the node just a few month ago. The usage beside my own is slim to none.
I have decided that I will not alone take the responsibility of the Controller. Instead I have invited all users to take the responsibility of the Controller in a shared and democratic manner. We will jointly decide how the information of the node is used and I (the technical admin) will then oblige to this. The result is that the Controller and responsible is the user collective altogether.
If this works out we will see, perhaps I will be the sole user on the node and I will have my democratic discussion with my self.
Also, it is not like there is much to decide, just that the information shall not be sold and not be used for marketing.
