[Gnso-epdp-team] For your review - revised language re. Geographic application

Agree with Ayden, there is no such concept as “over-compliance” with the law.  And I recommend replacing the specific (GDPR) with the generic (Data Protection law/requirements) wherever possible.

I take objection to the first bullet point that says the "GDPR should not be over-applied."  While the law may set forward minimum standards of behaviour, ethical duties and obligations do not always neatly correspond, and I believe it is our responsibility to make decisions that are ethical, and not only strictly legal. I appreciate Alan Greenberg wrote on our list several days ago to say we may have differing opinions on what is ethical and what is not, and I do not dispute that. Of course there is a degree of subjectivity here, though I would also say it isn't actually all that fuzzy. We should not need laws and regulations to guide our actions, but a moral compass that tells us we should not violate the rights of others just because we can get away with it. All domain name registrants should be entitled to privacy protections, not just those in jurisdictions with data protection regulations backed by fines.

Best wishes,
Ayden Férdeline
