Chap asks Facebook for data on his web activity, Facebook says no, now watchdog's on the case


Interesting indeed. We've a big upgrade contract being discussed at the moment which will also include record tagging so that if a customer requests their data, it can be located easily. Part of this work is also historic work going back over the last 7 years worth of data, a very expensive bit of software and work.

We're also discussing removing data under the 'right to be forgotten', not easy when the systems involved are designed to not have data removed from them.
