I wanted to buy something from this user, just wondering why he is banned and how long for?
Could a mod please let me know if possible?

Thanks,

hey mike, only a wild guess but this thread has been locked by col for bumping yesterday so maybe also got a one day ban

edit - although if it was a one day ban they shuld be back now, so maybe not

They are on a 1 week ban... as per the forum rules... when you have previous offences.

Such offences can lead to the following site-wide bans:[LIST=1]
[*]1st offence: 1 day ban
[*]2nd offence: 1 week ban
[*]3rd offence: 1 month ban[/LIST]

Can't, it would be a breach of the data protection act.

Actually it would be a breach of the law if you didn't tell him what was written on his account.

data protection act :?:

The second area covered by the Act provides individuals with important rights, including the right to find out what personal information is held on computer and most paper records.

Its actually a breach to withhold it.

Right of access to personal data

Suggest you go read up lol.
We have to at work as we take notes on regular customers, and they can legally ask whats being held about them, so we cant write "annoying gimp child that looks like a monkey" as they can request their info, read it, and not be best pleased. As well as info held having to be relevant, and derogatory comments like this arent relevant so also a breach.

Emma can't reply now, as she is trying to remove the numerous derogatory comments from our accounts. Not to mention the animal imagery. She's scheduled a few hours for my account, then she can do the rest in the following 30 minutes.

I'd like to know the notes on me too please.

Just wondering, are you allowed to read references from previous work places or teachers etc.
The teachers have never let me read what they've written in my university application reference but I'm told it's only good things...

Yes, as long as you ask in written form. By law you're allowed to see them.

That's because you have personal identfiers within your data, e.g. their name, addresses, etc.

As I understand it, if all you have is a nickname and notes against it, then this doesn't count as personal data as there is nothing that can identify the person in question.

Would depend how much info you have put in your profile, and how much info they can gleam from the posts you have made which will be stored.
ie say your name is Steve, you have your D.O.B filled in, and mention that you live 5 minutes from an Aldi in Kent.
In the wonderful world we live in its not difficult to find out the rest any more.
If there was a "Members Photo's" post like there is in a lot of other forums, then bam, identifiable.

My work we dont have any personal data, often just nicknames and a brief description, but its a tricky field and even though theres no actual name, address etc you can still figure out who they are so they have to be given the data.
We only have a nickname, and still get warned not to put anything cheeky in it, so if it came to it, the law generally side's with the person requesting the data.

Yeah, I guess your right, especially after reading the legal guidance document.

However, this assumes that the HUKD servers are in the UK. Are they?

uhh pretty sure no one could find diddly squat about me and that there sure as hell isn't any personal information associated with this account name
[admin]#29
The only people with usernotes against there account are those who've broken a rule and received an infraction-
It shows the date the rule was broken, the offence, and the punishment given.
It's nothing controversial and doesn't contain personal details...
If you've received a yellow or red card before, or a ban, you'll have usernotes against your account stating what you did wrong. You'll obviously know if you've been banned/infracted before and why, so that's exactly what will be written in your notes.

It's simply to help us keep track of whether members have broken the rules before so we can assess what ban length to give if they reoffend.

How do I appeal a ban?

I PM'd a Mod asking them to check something and let me know if they had any issues and then was banned, me thinkgs this is not the best approach....

Ok so do I dont want to appeal but think the decision was crazy.
I could still use the site I just couldnt contribute, very bizarre as wouldn't you want to discourage that?

As much as I like this site I think the modding is over zealous and inconsitent.

Don't worry Taz your in good company, it seems that to be a regular trader and contributor nowdays you need a ban in your profile.

Although reckon if I picked up a month ban that would be one less user of HUKD and I'd convert to another forum

Can of worms indeed.

FAO Mod's - it does not matter if the notes held about us are personal or not, if requested you must provide any details held about us for us to view at any time given reasonable notice. Failure to do so gives the requestee the right to report you to the UK data protection information commissioners office where you will most likley be served with a notice forcing you to produce the information to the individual.

If you are involved in storing information about individuals no matter how insignificant I would speak to the ownes of HUKD and get information because as a moderator you have access to personal information (DOB, Emails etc) and clearly you are keeping notes about people. Technically in terms of the DPA you are a 'Data controller' which means you are responsible for complying with the DPA, and you and your company are liable for non compliance to the DPA.

I suggest you look into this further.

Before you say your servers are in Europe - mainland europe have an equivalent law which the UK ICO also enforce.
