In the UK, if you've sold something to a customer, you have to keep their data for seven years, in case HMRC decide to audit you. You need to be able to produce the last seven years of financial transactions on demand, to make sure you're not fiddling your taxes.
You could probably delete some customer data before that - application logins, etc. - but you need to keep their name, address, contact details, VAT registration details, etc. for auditing purposes.
Obviously, if there's any doubt, you should consult a wallet-sucking leech for proper advice.
If you have a business requirement for keeping someone's data then even if they tell you to delete you do not have to delete it to comply with GDPR.
You just need to show evidence that the data you are holding is required for the functioning of the business.
Customer orders goods, pays for them, has them delivered.
Customer then leaves a review on your site praising the great goods he has ordered.
You save the customers details required for processing the order and the review in your data store.
Customer decided to raise a GDPR request saying he wants all his data deleted.
You delete the review, as it is not required for any business reason.
You do not have to delete his order or delivery details as these details are required for the operation of the business in cases where there might be a query or as required for auditing purposes.
Such is my understanding of GDPR after reading about it a lot.
We deal with medical information within the EU and US so we get to play with GDPR, HIPAA, NHS and a whole load of other 3-5LAs that all want things done differently.
Somehow, you manage to miss so many points implied in the posts.
The Russian army, by the way, goose-steps. A bunch of the Arab armies do, too. I suppose I could have used the goose-stepper analogy, instead - but WTF? There's a point being made - and in the fullness of time you may even get it.
It is preoperative - absolute - and as intended.
It is symbolic of authoritarianism - and as intended.
Now, further patronizing (or awaiting labeling as such):
Nazism is a subset of authoritarianism - not the other way around.
The image you should grab on to is merciless outreach to force all into their self-proclaimed 'better' way of life. With all the right-wing groups winning in elections throughout the EU and/or making serious headway (re: Marine Le Penn and Co.), maybe your original view is just more forward looking than mine!
So many other authoritarian religions to choose from! Although the scope of the Catholic church is huge, the practice (implicitly, damnation of some sort for disobedience) is practiced on the local level by the lot of them.
You may link the two, but the world at large doesn't. E.g. Google "jackboots" and you will not find the word "Nazi" in the results page.
But whatever. Not sure there's any childishness involved, and even if it were intended as an insult, why not? Are we now in a world where we are not allowed to use insults? No-one on this site was being insulted, it seems to be just you who have taken offence for some reason, as a result of concocting some link between the word "jackboots" and "nazi", combined with a personal need to defend the EU.
(Oh, and yes I realise that Google is not a definitive source for everything, but it does tend to give some indication of common usage)
I may be totally wrong, but it seems that there should be a fairly good piece of software that can "listen" to a WAV or MP3 of a song, and transcribe (polyphonically) the various parts into staves of notes for that instrument.
Anyone know of such an application? Anyone aware of one being developed using machine learning?
