Option to disable gravatar support- Potential GDPR issue

Sebastian shared this idea 1 month ago
Under Consideration

Dear blesta team!

currently some parts of blesta such as the ticket system make use of gravatar to display user imags. This sends user data (from the http-request) as well as more sensitive user information (email address) to a third party without the users consent or a way to opt-out.

As such may be seen as a GDPR issue. (Similar to the google fonts thing here: https://thehackernews.com/2022/01/german-court-rules-websites-embedding.html )

I'm suggesting an option to set a static "staff" and "client" image. (with a potential override for staff via my-info) as a potential solution.

regards

I'd like to see the ability to set staff photos and store locally- Maybe have a blank template with the option to upload for clients! I think that's a superb idea
