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...

Sarcasm and lowest form of wit come to mind. Data protection is serious. Someone could rob you blind if you are not literate in these matters. I bring up a serious issue that's not Brexit related and you still can't help yourself. Brainwashed bigot.

A couple of interesting infographics about GDPR so far, courtesy of the European Commission:

How on earth can I unsubscribe? I see no link to delete my account.


Not sure how you can delete, but the only thing on here that I could see was pesonal was your email address, and there is an option to change that.

So you could email the editor of NWN and ask them - and if they don't respond put their email address into your account. Maybe worth letting everyone know so they can be bombarded with PM's. You might change your name to Editor too! Perhaps they will take action then!

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.🤣
