There’s no personal data on here. TDH is being TDH.

Wrong.

I don't think you know what "personal data" defines.

Your username/password are stored; otherwise you couldn't log on! You gave a real-world, active email address (and other data) when you first signed up and you may have created a profile.

Your IP address (and probably MAC address) will be stored. Your posts are stored.

Under current data protection regulation, you have a right to be forgotten; which means all your posts/login/etc. have to be deleted

A quick Google would suggest that as forum posts are anonymous they aren't covered. I suspect it's a gray area but I'm happy to admit I haven't a clue. Being a business owner wouldn't make me an expert.

At one point just before it was introduced GDPR was the bane of my existence but these days it is rarely mentioned at all. My understanding of it is that the real purpose of it is not to prosecute companies who are trying to get it to work but make a few mistakes along the way but rather to present another tool to help in enforcement against companies who are deliberately spamming with unsolicited texts/emails/phone calls.

Lots of firms have already been fined and it is my understanding that firms have also been given time to get their houses in order. The carrot will be removed soon and a stick will replace it...

It was nothing to do with redundant data which is where this thread started.

Au contraire sir. It has everything to do with it. How do you think all the credit card details at BA were collected via the data breach?

As someone who previously had a merchant account, we never stored details at all. They were entered directly into a terminal. However companies like Amazon because of their size could store details and additional purchases made without re entering numbers. Assume BA are the latter and store records of current customers? The issue primarily was a data breach and nothing to do with BA not removing redundant data which once again is what this thread was all about. rolleyes.gif

Are you a flat earther? If I said I'd changed my mind and wanted to remain in the EU, you would want to leave.🤣
