    I don't recall being asked if I minded my forum name, e-mail address and posts being 'sold' to another organisation.

    Have I missed something or do you have the legal authority to 'sell' this information?

    What may Chelsea Publications do with this information in the future - 'sell' it on to a Russian Porn site perhaps?

    Sorry Richard that is not good enough !

    Selling MY details
    Selling MY Intellectual property

    Have I missed the request that authorises this ???


    It is not for any value of these points it is a matter of "betrayal of trust " and the fact I was not asked.

    Yours bl00dy furious from Somerset.

    It will be subject to the same strict Data Protection laws that we maintain which includes not selling the data (which is ours) to Russian porn sites..

    I did not do the deal, I did not know about the deal I am only reporting on what I have been told.

    I will try my best to answer any further questions you may have.

    Thank you

    I suspect that our "permission" to sell our usernames and posts is all burried in the small print of the forum T&Cs.

    In fact if this is not resolved I will request that all personal and any attached correspondence/posts/either electronically or otherwise to be removed from both your server and that of Chelsea Publishing and this will be done via the courts to make sure it happens.

    I am sorry that I have to word this so strongly but no action would take place if I didn't ,I trusted IPC with my details etc. and that trust has been sold to the highest bidder.

    Extractions from IPCs privacy policy

    Your interpretation of Data Protection seems a little slack - not strict.

    Who is the Arbiter of who is a suitable recipient of my Data?

    How can IPC control what the new owner of this Data does with it next?

    No ones trust has been sold to the highest bidder..

    Classic Boat Magazines, its name, trademark, staff, forum etc has been sold to Chelsea publishing.

    You details are safe and remain safe, as you are a user of the Classic Boat Forum the content which will probably include posts by you (as a user)will be passed over to Chelsea who by law are required to use your data according to the Data Protection act.

    If you do not want this to happen simply state here or email the editor (Natalie) and we will remove your details from the list.

    Data is a prickly issue due to the fact that many companies to not treat it with respect or according to the law, we do and I can assure you it is safe.

    Your will be able to use this forum as if nothing has happened and I can only assume that you will have to once more register for their forum to gain access should you wish.

    Any emails you may and I say may receive from them can simply be un subscribed from according to the data protection act.

    Not as far as I can see. It doesn't explicitly prohibit it either.
