Because of a discussion on HN I want to clarify: Xohop – Jasa Pembuatan Toko Online datenschutzhelden.org was NOT closed because of GDPR. We already closed it earlier (february 2018), mostly because of time issues.

But after the end of the project, the page was still up and running as archive on my server. (And me still being fully responsible for it).

In march I decided to move it into the WBM to don’t have it on my servers anymore.(And hopefully keep legal issues away)
