BBC Defies the Data Protection Acts
These are the conditions that you sign up for when you contribute to a BBC programme. You are not actually informed of these until you have contributed and the 'contract' states that you have deemed to have accepted these conditions if you keep the fee after 28 days.
For reasons unknown to me, the BBC wants me to use any personal data that I might have been handling on behalf of the BBC, 'for any other purposes including marketing purposes.'
Do they really mean that?
Surely that is in contravention of the Data Protection Acts?
