Adjustment to 8 Apr 2002 entry – Threatening Behaviours

We have been advised by our solicitors that information covered by the privacy policy can be given to other law agencies, without necessarily being threatened with a court order. Such a policy would be costly to us because we could have to appear in court in whatever country the problem is occuring.

Thus, the wording in the above entry (8 Apr) is incorrect. It should read, ‘We will only give your information out in the event of a legal issue, to the relevant agencies dealing with the legal problem’. Our United Kingdom (and thus European Union) Data Protection registration, is still covered as we have registered that we will provide users details in the event of criminal investigations. Indeed, under our Data Protection Act registration we can actually do largely what we like with your data – we just choose not to :-)

  1. Thank goodness we here are covered by that Act!
    the whole legal stuff is a minefield.

    Good luck with getting rid of the problem.
