After a race like that?  Christ alive.

Losing interest in something like F1 is a process that rarely takes one race. :p

Exactly. It has been a long process. I’m done.

That doesn’t sound right in 2021. It should be easy to withdraw consent to process personal data. After that you should delete all my personal data from your database, including my profile. I know UK is out of the EU but I bet that law still applies.  And I do withdraw.

Most people just stop posting on a forum if they've lost interest. No need to make a hue and cry about it.  :lol:

There are too many forums out there with my details. No way to remove them. I haven't owned a fish tank in years but if I search using the user name I'm still there.

Facebook allows you to remove your digital foot print. You have 30 days grace and you're completely gone.

Maybe, but this forum was always particularly keen to support human rights objectives. And somehow they obviously violate my basic right to "be forgotten". How so?

Was looking for "delete account" button for about 15 min, so I got frustrated.

You should read 4.9 of this site's privacy policy, as well as section 6 and 7.4.  https://accounts.mot...ivacy-policy/en

By law (EU and UK) you (the data subject) have the right to 'be forgotten'. In other words, you can request any data held about you be removed.  It is possible that any posts you make may not be deleted but the account associated with those posts removed.  This depends on the terms and conditions set down relating to the 'copyright holder' for any content contributed by you and how it may be used on the site.

You must prove your identity before your request can be processed, to ensure it is actually you requesting the removal of the data subject.  This site will require two pieces of identity for verification.  The data controller/officers will have up to 1 month for initial response, as set out by the terms of the policy.  

 

(disclosure: this is my field - twitter @reason42).

Is Doc83 your real name?

A quick click on your ‘posts’ tab explains this flounce. I would imagine your interest may be back once Verstappen wins again... be patient man. And at the very least you said ‘see you in 2022 F1’... so just wait til next year and don’t log in until then.

‘IM LEAVING EVERYONE!!!’ :lol:

Try spamming pictures of other messageboard owners in compromising positions. I’m sure that used to work as a way of having your account deleted :lol:
