While a few requirements seem to not be met, the website only deals in image sharing/hosting so it would seem reasonable to accept to me under the circumstances. T&S may want to look further into the GDPR issue however, which I'm not sure about.

From my understanding, if the data is anonymised which it seems so then there's no GDPR issue. It seems they've gone to a great length to simply avoid having personal data in a way that GDPR would cover it.

Owen subscribed.

The assessment looks fine, anonymised data means it can't be traced back to the author/source so GDPR is fine in this regard.
