Well, I think they'd best come up with some answers re data protection fairly pronto...
Ah, something my good lady bought up after some discussion.
When I was a Mod over there, I was registered for and my Company, under the Data Protection Act.
The club in all honesty didn't seem to worried when I offered the services of either my registration or Company to full fill the legal requirements.
On this Community for clarification,
no addresses are stored (or asked for), no information is linked with real name and user name on a searchable database, or date of birth if indicated (most people just put day and month which stops any age known).
No information is ever used or passed on (like the opting in for XPart next door which in itself requires registration under act)
If and when and further details from members are requested, as I am already registered and a Admin on site the rules and Laws etc would be fully implemented.
At this stage on checking (have reply), we are not required to register the Site (which isn't a Company) due to the nature of running and information held at this time.
If any laws are altered you can all rest assured we would comply and put up the sections for all to see that are required by the said Act and law.
Thanks for your patience, this post is to hopefully explain the current position of the Community.
If anyone requires to know the full meaning of act or any other queries re the Community site please PM myself or any Admin.
