You need to comply with the data protection act.
For example, if a person working in admin, with access to personal data, did a search on their database for people unrelated to their work, but did not disclose or use the data in any way. Could this be a criminal offence, and breach of data protection act, and if so what would be the likely outcome as regards the employer tracing the log on the employee’s work computer?
Primarily, I think that it’s an invasion of privacy and sheer misuse of your trust in access to such data. And if there is no reason to access such data, why the hell are you doing it and asking us on here? Your act is offensive by nature, may not be criminal, but offensive nevertheless.
Are patients in need of frequent blood transfusions entitled to know the personal data of possible blood donors?
If there is not enough blood of a certain group at the hospital, is it legal to call the registered blood donors and ask them for help?
I think it goes against privacy rights and whatever… what you can do is post that you need help from donors with whatever type of blood you need, put your location and maybe you can talk to a blood bank and tell them that you are going to post, let’s say, facebook for example and ask for donors there, talk to the blood bank if is possible to have some kind of password so every person that is going to donate their blood for your cause could go for your cause only. The donors would give the password to the bank and they will know that the blood is being donated to you.
Please help im selling a used pc on ebay and i need to delete personal data for free.
My advise to you having been a free lance contractor for intelligence agencies, is that you remove your HDD, and sell him the PC, without the HDD. Not all that much money for the buyer to purchase his on HDD. (He should understand, your privacy concerns).
No matter what any software companies tell you that they can clean your HDD, drive of all data, this is not true, even if they use bleech, gutman technique, with many write overs, etc. etc. Still any good forensic computer expert can strip the data off your HDD.
Not even a reformat will prevent any good computer expert from stripping the data off your HDD. All of the answers saying “Reformat”, is 100% wrong.
The only way to prevent a forensic expert from stripping data off your HDD, is to beat with a hammer, then it is impossible, or remove the HDD. If you remove, don’t throw in the garbage safe in your home safe or other safe place.

Recently at the right hand side of my FB home page (what used to be called newsfeed) I have been getting a column of small ads. Sometimes these appear to be linked to my personal data or interests as they appear on FB, and sometimes they include pages my friends have “liked”. However, they were not there before and I want to get rid of them! I use Flashkiller, on the latest Firefox browser, and Adblock Plus, which has always been excellent and I get no advertising on any other site I visit. I have looked at my FB privacy and security settings and can’t see (an obvious) way to clear these ads and stop them appearing. I am sure I am missing something as they were not appearing before!! Thank you for your help.
