When facebook first started I was "encouraged" to join by family but once I discovered what a **** outfit it was I tried to unsubscribe. They did not take kindly to that idea at all so I just ignored them and as far as I know I am still on their books but I do not go on their site so quite happy. In comparison this little forum, (assuming what you are referencing), seems perfectly innocuous so just log off and bye bye.

Interestly the NWN are probably in breach of GDPR rules and certainly in breach of regulations around the right to be forgotten. Both carry considerable fines. It's the law..joint law suit to win a few million?🤣

You don't understand anything digital.

Organisations will go out of business because of this. If you have a company (ahem as u claim) and don't understand these basic regulations it's very worrying. And you are probably at risk of financial damage. It's not a joke. It's bl00dy serious.

What personal data are talking about?

The point of this post was to highlight that you cannot b forgotten on this forum. You need to be able to delete all your posts and profile. The law requires it. It's an E U law funnily enough that we have incorporated onto our statute books.

Also, as a business owner it concerns me greatly that you appear to have no concerns over GDPR data. You probably keep all your employee data on an unencrypted memory stick.or laptop. As such I may have to inform the authorities via the forum admin about your worrying practice. You need to take this seriously. I am doing you a big favour believe ot or not.Take action. Before it's too late.

You're right!
Can't see any way of deleting yourself.
Not good!!
Shouldn't worry too much though as, by the way things are going on here, the whole thing will probably removed soon!

That is all very well but does anyone know of an online forum where matters of interest can be discussed in a positive manner?
I have tried one or two in the past but they all seem to attract opinionated buffoons who like to "see" their name on screen. Maybe I am asking to much. rolleyes.gif

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

Glad someone else is intelligent on here. If Newres really owned a business then he should know this. Then again he's probably 38 and living with his mum. Oh and the NWN website is ahem..not that difficult to hack. Not that I would ever do such a thing despite working closely with penetration testers...😂

Why aren’t I surprised you work with penetration testers.

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...

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.

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!

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.🤣
