GDPR-Compliant Member-API

Application by
Daniel Fau

What is your idea about?
Service-Providers can encourage own clients to become TYPO3-Members with special discounts aso. Yet it is impossible to constantly verify the status of a TYPO3-Membership if the Member doesn’t want to be listet on typo3.org. Therefore we’d love to have a website/API to verify Member-Status to check with unique parameters if a client has a valid TYPO3-Membership. If so we can verify the status without the need of exposed Data on typo3.org. API can be implemented in Online-Purchasing. Website can be used to verify manually by Sales-Teams.

What is the potential impact of your idea?
Webhosters and SaaS-Providers can grant discounts for TYPO3-Members and therefore encourage TYPO3-Memberships in that Group. The potential is a greater impact than simple payments to the Association – which those companies probably do anyway – as we get the Contact-Data and grow the outreach of TYPO3 as well as the Revenue. Clients also love to get special discounts.

Who can / should implement your idea?
The TYPO3 Association should look for someone

Approximate Funds needed
€5,000 - €10,000

This is a cool and novel idea and one that I think could definitely create more memberships. It would offload the TYPO3 Association and TYPO3 Company when it comes to inventing, researching, and implementing membership incentives. (Of course, that doesn’t mean TYPO3 should rest on its laurels. We still need to work on membership incentives!)
