The extra-territorial provisions of the GDPR may apply here.

Reg 3(2) provides as follows: "This Regulation applies to the processing of personal data of data subjects who are in the Union by a controller or processor not established in the Union, where the processing activities are related to: the offering of goods or services, irrespective of whether a payment of the data subject is required, to such data subjects in the Union; or the monitoring of their behaviour as far as their behaviour takes place within the Union."

See: https://gdpr-info.eu/art-3-gdpr/

Whether the GDPR can actually be enforced against you is a different question.

NB you will also need to consider compliance with your local laws relating to the processing of personal data.
