GDPR on my mind. I have for the last couple of months started GDPR with Google and Change.org. The reason was that change.org published my name without my permission but later stated they had removed my name from their website. Two months on, my name is still showing for this particular petition I had signed and Google have said they will remove the listing from the UK only.
Well what about the rest of the world?
It infuriates me that my name is still showing even though I have asked many times to have the listing removed. It is causing me no end of distress and GDPR only applies to the EU countries and the UK.
I won’t go into specific detail as I do not want the publicity but I thought GDPR was a Global Regulation but apparantly it is not, so the rest of the world is an open can of worms, that can use your information anyway they want and there is nothing that you can do to stop them.
I just have to wait and see what happens but I am not happy that my name is still associated to a petition I supposedly had signed whereby the listing is still live.
I sign off with a heavy heart as no one should go through what I am going through. It is making my work much harder to do and people who I have spoken to have said I need to remove the listing ASAP.
My hands are tied for the minute. Will update this post when I get some more news.
