On the 25th of May 2018 the *General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_Data_Protection_Regulation>* will
enter in to force, this will likely result in some changes in how
OpenStreetMap operates and distributes its data.

The LWG has prepared a position paper on the matter that has been
reviewed by data protection experts and in general the approach to not
rely on explicit consent has been validated. It should be noted that
while the paper outlines our approach, some of the details still need to
be determined. In particular the future relationship with community and
third party data consumers that utilize OSM meta-data and what will
actually be dropped/made less accessible of the data listed in Appendix B.
