BBC NEWS | UK | Public ‘must assert’ data rights

People need to take control of how much information about them is being stored by organisations, says the UK’s data protection watchdog.

Technology has been booming and we have been hard pressed to keep up with it. Now is probably a good time to look at what our rights are.It would mean wwe have come of age. I bought a computer with cashback. The cashback is claimed online but they want to put money straight into your bank account, so you have to give your bank account details. There was no other option. So I didn’t get my cashback and they got away with it because the store said it had nothing to do with them.Probably didn’t but then don’t advertise the cashback unless people realise this is what will happen. Then there are some sites that wont’ let you on unless you give what I consider to be too much information. A name and a password should be suffient for most site. I think we need to look at what our rights are, how they can be undermined by different international sites and what our course of action is.
