Our immediate plan is to deliver courses (at no charge to users) on our Moodle. We "might" use affiliate links and market other premium and/or other free courses to enrollees down the road. We haven't determined if or when we will add affiliate links or add premium courses. But we want as large of a marketplace for our courses as possible.
Having reviewed the EU Privacy laws, we have decided that being able to be fully compliant with GDPR is far more work than we are in a position to properly administer.
Is there a PLUGIN where we can exclude residents of all GDPR countries from setting up an account on our Moodle so as to avoid GDPR. In other words, if a resident of a GDPR country is unable to set up an account, then we should not have to concern ourselves with GDPR compliance. Although, we still plan to comply with Privacy Laws in other countries and several states in U.S.
Philosophically, I understand the value in GDPR, but it places a huge monitoring and administrative setup obligation on small online Moodles and it seems easier for us to simply exclude GDPR countries from our potential marketplace.
Any thoughts or alternatives to this are greatly appreciated.
