Explain how the FUCK a mouse/keyboard driver could, under REASONABLE conditions, be non-GDPR compliant?

What the __fuck__

@indrora To be fair, as far as I know, Synapse is *not* a driver per-se. It's a configuration/setup/control panel application. If that requires a login, for cloud sync or whatever, then it is entirely reasonable that they collect and control at least some personal data, and is thus affected by the GDPR.

@algernon You're required to run Synapse to, apparently, **use** the device in any logical capacity -- e.g. the reasons you bought it beyond "a mouse" or "a keyboard".

oh, and Synapse is bundled with the driver. And apparently phones home even before you've set it up.

I continue my __what the fuck__ state.
