In addition, seeing that the site was just hacked, it would probably be good for this information to be stored directly on the Groundspeak database and not just linked to the site. My understanding, and Alan has said much the same above, is that under English law it would be illegal for GAGB to release personal data without the express permission of everyone whose details are in there. With all respect, our database contains rather more information than you, or indeed most people, are seeing. The web pages are just extracts from the database. There's a lot of personal contact information in there that's only visible to our committee, and most if not all of the agreements have been made on that understanding. This is not a public collection of information. It is simply an internal reference area that reviewers themselves contribute to so there would be no public disclosure. Trust me, I won't be adding a thing based on the negative reactions generated here. I apologize for attempting to help current and future reviewers in the UK. Any errors made by not knowing about this information would of course not be the fault of any geocaching.com reviewer I suppose. Quote Link to comment
