@Michael_Purnell here is another big reason why you should give us the possibility to deactivate this recaptcha feature
Recaptcha is collecting user’s data.
If you force us to use this, you forces our users to have some of their data collected by Google, which is against the GDPR and other similar laws depending on which country the user is coming from.
As a service company we have to apply the law (same as you by the way, it’s not because you are a US company that European or APAC law do not apply since you have customers from all over the word)
Because of this law, we must provide a way to have the user’s agreement for data collection.
**With SDK 1.7.9, if the user refuse to have his data collected, then we must not collect it. But since you force us to pass by this recaptcha feature not matter the user accept or not, we are now force to tell to our customers : if you don’t accept you cannot have access to our online services, which is a disaster in term of communication and have a direct impact on our economy.
So please, remove it completely or make it optional as soon as possible.
