The privacy policy for Meetup is not aligned with the European Union
GDPR. I don't have an opinion about whether a European Union citizen
should accept the privacy policy or not. From what I understand, the
data protection "rights" I have are based on the local law. I do not
agree to give that up as I won't have much of a say when something
goes wrong in future.
