Yes. The GDPR applies to the processing of personal data. Constructor does not collect personal data, and is therefore not subject to the GDPR.
The GDPR’s definition of personal data is:
‘[P]ersonal data’ means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’).
Constructor is not able to identify people using the data it collects.
All the data stored by Constructor is anonymous and cannot be tied back to individual users. We anonymize IP addresses by removing the last octet.
The GDPR specifically states:
The principles of data protection should therefore not apply to anonymous information, namely information which does not relate to an identified or identifiable natural person or to personal data rendered anonymous in such a manner that the data subject is not or no longer identifiable. This Regulation does not therefore concern the processing of such anonymous information, including for statistical or research purposes.
