Steps to get your info removed from PWL

This info is compiled from MikeSouth.com and was forwarded to me via email by a source.


If a website has published your personal details, without your permission then under Dutch law TWO people can be held liable.

1) The website owner. (Notify the site owner. They are legally required to take your stuff down.)

2) The Hosting Company (In many cases site owners are hard to find or unco-operative. Not to worry, the HOST is also responsible for correcting breaches, once they have been told about them.)

Finding their contact details :-

a) Website contact.

If none on the site, and none in WHOIS, you are stuffed. Move straight to complaining to the HOST

b) HOST

The site domain WHOIS data should (even if everything else hidden) show “Domain Servers in Listed Order”, and the corporate name therein will be that of the hosting company.

NEXT

Send an email to abuse@host (abuse@ECATEL.NET) cc postmaster@host (NOC@ECATEL.NET) and any suitable publically listed email contact on their site as follows:-

“You have personal data about me on X site. Details of the data so they can find and delete. Please remove. If not done within 48 hours a formal complaint will be made to the Dutch DPA”

Given them 48 hours.

Post/Fax your detailed complaint to the Dutch DPA http://www.dutchdpa.nl making sure to add your name, tel number, email address, the details about you or file/page/url on the site and a reference to the fact that you asked the hosting company ABC to remove the data and no action has occured.

Most hosting companies will dump a troublesome website faster than you say “privacy” simply because they are not paid enough to justify a site causing them aggro. So if your breach is one of many, sites should vanish. If your breach is a one off, it should just get fixed.
