Understanding MaxMind privacy for our users

Continuing the discussion from MaxMind IP database updates require a license:

Can someone please explain what the process is for protecting our user’s data if we exist outside EU GDPR compliance. I find the need for a MaxMind license off-putting, especially if they are tracking our user base across this fully open platform. Perhaps this was built into the platform already, but I was not aware of it and am uncomfortable with it, although I acknowledge not understanding what purpose it serves.

Thanks for any thoughts and suggestions!

If you feel this way, remove the license from the app.yml file and rebuild to remove the MaxMind DB feature.

It is used on the User Admin view when you click on the " IP Lookup button"

On the user profile Recently Used Devices section:

And on the email warning when a new user session is created from a place too far away from a recent session as a added security warning.
