Solved data protection act help !

Post by george20 on May 7th 2014, 10:26 pm

a member has sent this request >>>

"I was a donor on the old incarnation of the forum, then personal life and other stuff enforced a long break from it and I come back to find it has been taken over by you and you have made some of the biggest idiots I have encountered forum moderators. So, please remove my account and all posts, now.

As a forum owner, I am sure that you know that under the data protection act, I own all of my posts on the"forum, so you are legally bound to remove them, so please do. "


and then this in a email >>


"You have deleted my account as requested, not DELETE my posts, immediately. What is it you aren't understanding? I WROTE THEM I OWN THEM!"

This is incorrect. You are not legally bound to remove them.

http://help.forumotion.com/t1526-account-deletion-administrators-obligations

A person who decides to withdraw himself from a forum and requests the suppression of his account from the administrator. However this last refuses. What are the obligations of the administrator?

In accordance with article 34 of the data-processing law and freedoms of January 6, 1978, each member of a forum has a right of access, of modification, correction and suppression of the data which relate to it. This is why the administrator cannot refuse to remove an account. If such is the case, warn Forumotion who will require of the administrator to remove this account. In the event of refusal of his share, it will be exposed to the pure and simple removal of his forum for nonrespect of the "data-processing and freedoms"...

It should be noted however that you cannot require of the administrator to remove all your messages (Except if they contain personal information making it possible to identify you formally).

There is however an exception to this obligation:

In the event of a complaint (For racist insults, slandering, remarks, homophobes or revisionists remarks, etc...) against the person who asks for the suppression of his account, it should be known that the administrator cannot erase the data relating to the identification of this person (In particular IP address who allows to identify a person formally): it is legally held to be able to communicate with them during a one year deadline minimum (This to allow for example justice to find this person and to possibly initiate a procedure against that particular persone).

If the posts have any personal information or can identify the member, then you have to delete them.
