My apologies if i am too alarmant on this or if i am misunderstanding this

Please consider my message on this as a request from a community member to
be assured that we are okay and have nothing to worry about.
>From your message, Wafa, i hope i can be at peace with regards to Afrinic
and the GDPR because it is that simple from your perspective.
