Summary0019144: Add warning to not add attributes containing sensitive subscriber information
DescriptionAdd warning text to the "add new attribute" page (/lists/admin/?page=attributes) notifying admins that they should not store sensitive personal data about subscribers, such as health, sexual orientation, race, etc.. This notice will help admins comply with the GDPR which does not allow storing of such details without further protection.

Various means of presenting this info are possible. The contextual help button ('?') is not sufficient in this case as it will not be ready by most admins. Please review similar always-visible help text on other pages when deciding which approach to use. The approach taken should be suitable for consistent application on other pages also should the need arise.
TagsNo tags attached.

The PR does not include the "Read more".

Where would that link be directed to?

@michiel The link can be directed to a page on to be published in future explaining GDPR compliance best practices. But since we don't have that page yet, I didn't add the "Read More".

I think we should have that page and link to it before adding this change, otherwise it will look very strange, and will puzzle people. It's a great opportunity to educate, but it's a one-off moment to do so for a lot of users.

@michiel the link can go to an article on on GDPR compliance, but that page isn't ready yet. I propose merging the PR as it stands and adding a link in the near future following publication of the article.

Ok, you can merge the PR. I still think it would be better to only do that once the page is ready, and I posted my reasons.
