25th May was last week. The email is dated 2nd June.
It doesn’t look right to me. Not that I am fully conversant with the GDPR requirements. And they definitely breached the deadline. Intrigued as to who ‘they’ are…
It is not compliant with GDPR requirements. Simple as that.
“PetrolPrices.com”, Gus. They let me know every day which are/were the five cheapest places to buy diesel that day.
Should I report them to someone, and if so to whom?
I think it would be the Information Commissioner’s Office. Avery quick squiz at their website shows avenues for reporting an actual data breach, anyway. And they do have a phone number.
There doesn’t seem to be anywhere there for the sort of thing I would be complaining about: it isn’t spam or a nuisance call, and I don’t actually mind them having my data; I just feel that they are not behaving as they were meant to, which makes a bit of a mockery of the new regulations.
Maybe ring them on Monday to ask what if anything I should do.
The ICOis the right body. The chance of their actually doing anything about it is close to zero, just as they do nothing about mass nuisance calling even when handed recordings as evidence.
