Ciao Koen,

Exactly, that's what I was thinking too.

We have strict policies for IT-PUG as far as privacy and data collection 
are concerned, in order to protect privacy.

However, I think that if we study a proper solution, we can easily get 
over them. After all we just need security precautions and transparency 
towards users.

I guess one solutoin is that the EU is responsible for writing privacy 
policies and maintaining a secure database of users' data. For those 
users that directly adhere to the EU PUG (because they are in countries 
without local or localised groups), they MUST accept the privacy statement.

Those users that belong to a local group and accept the local group 
policy, might be informed that they could become members of the EU PUG 
if they want and they are asked to accept another privacy disclaimer.

I guess this scenario would be fine.
