Data Protection Abuse

Seemingly, website customers private information is bought and sold without their consent by unscrupulous web design companies.

(See external article on “How To Run A Company Into The Ground And Accrue Massive Debts In Just One Year” Ed. haha)

Callisti is concerned at recent events in Dumfries and Galloway where customers of a failed company have been given a like-it-or-lump-it block transfer of all their details and website hosting to a Cumbria based company with only 1 week’s notice. No mention is made that pays any respect to patiently loyal customers’ privacy and information – or that it’s been given to strangers – just a link to a video.

Ruthless cherry-picking or brotherly concern? You decide.

Given that it can take 4-6 weeks for even simple domain name transfers out of a debt-ridden mismanaged business, 1 week’s notice isn’t much use!

Callisti wishes the best of luck to any hard-working web developer who’s just had the rug pulled from under them, but this freeing of shackles may be the catalyst to move to a better working environment.
