Or, more cheaply...
Just buy a Linksys NSLU2 (or similar), reflash it with Debian and apt-get all the bits you need to do what this thing does. 50 quid or so, that.

We export millions of pounds worth of personal details every week!
AFAIK, the DPA says that you can't send personal data to countries that don't look after it properly. By the word of British law, no personal data should be kept by HMG of Britain.
I'd trust porno.com with my credit card details before I'd trust the British Civil Service with them.
I don't know how Dutch law works, but under UK law a person has the right to check the data held on him and correct mistakes.
It should work both ways. If a person had the right to check the names and positions of everyone who checked their record, then perhaps only those who could justify their use of this information to the people concerned would use it?
I don't imagine a citizen would be especially concerned with their doctor checking their medical history, but if someone else were to do so then that citizen should be entitled to an explanation.
