GDPR and exporting of user data

As many of you know, yesterday GDPR went into force. One of its articles, “Right to data portability”, states that every user should be able to retrieve (in a machine-readable format) the personal data that a service has collected from them.

Now, I am not a lawyer, but in relation to iCM doesn’t this mean that the ability to export one’s movie lists and checks/favs/etc. should become freely accessible to everyone? After all, user history is pretty much the main and only personal data that the site collects.

Correct me if I’m wrong but that’s not “personal” data.

And we already have edit powers over our actual personal data via settings. The privacy policy is here:

(funny, we both are not even in EU)

Yeah… it has occurred to me some time after I made this post that it might be a big stretch to call user activity “personal data”. I don’t know, for some reason when I was reading about the whole hullabaloo caused by GDPR I instantly thought about this site.
