|I left most recently because I was not happy that the site was not taking posters' online security seriously enough ... that was a matter of principle, and still is, if I'm honest ... I'm still waiting for a site anouncement on whether this site will protect my contact details short of the proper legal authorities requesting them.... that's a very important point of principle for me. |
Just to highlight this point Penz, an amendment has been made to the consititution in response to this although I can't remember if a statement was released at the time saying what the change was, or just that there had been a change in general. Below is the added point:
Although not strictly governed by the Data Protection Act, ATD and it's administration team will take a course which abides by it's terms. If you handle personal information about individuals, you have a number of legal obligations to protect that information under the Data Protection Act 1998. The legislation hasn't quite caught up with the evolution of the internet, but ATD is not deemed by the Administration team as an exception to this.
Broadly, this means that personal data will be kept just that, personal. Moderators and keyholders will abide by the terms of DPA. In the event of a subject access request, moderators will refer the request to the keyholders, who will in turn ensure that the request meets the conditions required before releasing any information.
Ammendments: Point 9 added, August 2012.
ATD Admin. May 2012
The Keyholders have been agreed and are Frank Bullitt and Pepsipete.
Webb out. Larrieu for president.
