"Prevaricating" means "lying"
No, it doesn't.

Exactly. HMRC's copy is deleted. But the data that was pushed to GCHQ etc on arrival won't be.
Intelligence services won't even delete bio data, even if ordered too, even if audited. There will always be a copy somewhere else, and the storage requirements are tiny compared to AV recordings.
So yes, those illegally obtained genetic swab data that UK police collected, and were ordered by ECHR to dispose of will never actually be deleted.
I received a Costco barnded credit card for a name I've had mail for at my address. I can guarantee that the name has never been associate mailing-wise with my address, because I built the house and the number issued is new.
First point of interest - credit card issued to an address clearly not associated to the name. Great credit check.
@nd.. I called Costco, had to get through from CS to Security. They Oohed and Ahhed, thanked me politely, and asked me to destroy the card. One week later... a replacement card arrived. I simply kept it for 3 months during whic I heard nothing, then destroyed it.
When considering charities... do check the finances, as some NPs are more lifestyle vehicles for the directors than do-good orgs. A lot of phone-based fundraisers keep most of the contributions. In US, 501(c)(3) non-profits must file Form 990 showing finances, and these aren't difficult to dig up on the webs. When directors are getting a few hundred $k, a question or two are begged...
1. Mandates firmware updates from WAN, so flash will need to be double size to hold old image and new image
2. Allows push updates, which is a massive attack vector, not least because each router must phone home to tell mummy who and where it is, so every nation state monitoring all traffic will know who's got what.
Per an earlier comment:
If anyone wants to quickly check whether their system is using their drives own hardware encryption, run "manage-bde.exe -status" from the command line as administrator.
For mine it shows AES-256, which is how I configured it, not using the available hardware encryption on the Samsung EVO SSD.
Presuming that editing individual records to delete unlawfully retained data is, as claimed, painfully and uneconomically difficult... then the reason not to create a script that filteres out the traffic on transfer to the new system is probably this: it won't get deleted (easily) from the new system. It will get moved instead (equally easily) to the the other 5-eyes databases. So ministers can say that LEDS doesn't have the data. But we won't get an answer on what got pushed to foreign databases for reasons of national security.
"However, you should know that some of your personal information may have been exposed, which may have included one or more of the following: name, billing zip code, phone number, email address, account number and account type (prepaid or postpaid)."
Sounds like financial data to me.
Phair said he would prefer to see governments better engage with the industry: “It's not legislation or ten million dollar fines, it's working with companies on next product suites so there can be lawful interception.”
This is dumb. Oz gov can't work with every company, so either the relationships become legislated state secrets or the ppl wanting to avoid compromise use untampered products.
"If you don't have a My Health Record and don't want one created for you, you will need to opt out."
"However, if you decide later that you would like a My Health Record, you can create one at any time by following the steps to register."
All the data on everyone will be in this database. It's just the data access portal called "My Health Record" will only be enabled per the opt-in/out system. One check box.
So everyone's data will be vulnerable, because it's the database that gets shared, copied etc. Opting out of this one portal helps a little, but not much.
You've got Germans buying their cars in Netherlands to pay lower VAT.
I built a house in one part of USA and ending up buying all the white goods over the internet from another state because it much much cheaper than locally. With a lot of big ticket items (hob, oven, fridge, dishy, washer, drier) the savings was thousands.
Let's presume UK police follow this retention law to the letter. There's nothing in there about prior DNA sharing with 5 Eyes, Interpol etc and managing that flow.
Just because the trivially sized data for DNA, FP, facial isn't on a UK DB, that doesn't mean the search request can't be against a BD in USA for example, which was automatically passed the info on generation.
Also, tracking of unconvicted individuals coded as 'terrorist suspects' surely comes under different constraints, so loophole there too.
Parallel construction of evidence is so easy nowadays.
It doesn't require machine learning to early detect cancers. It requires repeated high resolution scans of the areas of concern, and diff analysis of the scans over time to detect change.
That is not going to be performed because of the expense.
Machine learning is fine for digging out needles in haystacks, but it can't invent patient data to determine causality let alone do pre-diagnosis.
Realistically, the anayses will at best correlate lifestyle/genetics/whatever against statistical cancer risk. For which, of course, there's just a tiny privacy implication.
Firstly, Ofcom issued guidelines not mandated, and they "consider that 1 hour battery back-up capability represents an appropriate minimum level of protection to provide to customers taking FTTP services".
The issue isn't just consumer premise equipment. It's forcing the telecom provider to not rely on consumer power for the switching network. This costs money - backup battery stacks and generators.
I got a dump of my data from The Work Number some years ago, and they had every single pay amount from Freescale for whom I have worked, which Freescale voluntarily gave them as part of the network. No, I wasn't asked if it was ok to pass across the highest possible granularity of my pay to a 3rd party data aggregator.
Motor Trend magazine is probably the highest circulation new car mag, and the ads feature hunks chewing tobacco, more hunks driving trucks bigger than a space shuttle, watches with more complications than aforementioned space vehicle, hideously ugly jewelry with broad-bean sized non-precious stones for the The Wife... and smiling hetero-couple ED treatment ads at the back.
The guns magazine ads are even more steotyped. Slinky ladies featuring small handguns in a thigh holster (!), chunky men in camo carrying the latest black rifle.
But apart from the patriarchal sexist crap, the annoyance of ads is being flooded with toaster ads after buying one online. Do people collect toasters... ooh, that's a nice toaster, let's get than one too!
Put the 3 examples in Google:
"The use of" "parts is required to keep your" "manufacturer’s warranties and any extended warranties intact"
"This warranty shall not apply if this product" "is used with products not sold or licensed by"
"This warranty does not apply if this product" "has had the warranty seal on the" "altered, defaced, or removed."
In FreeNAS if a ZFS pool is allowed to become full, the pool becomes unavailable for read or delete. ZFS writes a small file to the disk at the start of every transaction, and so if can't then the transaction is pooched. I hope the ZFS implementation on Linux has fixed that, and BSD implementations such as FreeNAS can follow suit.
"Widespread use of ANPR means cameras across the country submit between 25 million and 35 million read records to the national ANPR data centre each day. There are more than 22 billion records in the database."
That's about two years worth. The cameras have been building up for a long, long time. M25 upgrade 20-odd years ago for a start, which used plate reading to calculate speeds over long distances.
The European Court of Human Rights held in 2008 that UK holding DNA samples of individuals arrested but not convicted is unlawful. HMG has farted arround ever since with consultations etc.
Per wikipedia: According to The Independent on 27 July 2011, the UK government "has indicated that destroying the DNA of the innocent would be impossible because the records are mixed up in batches alongside the DNA of the guilty."
So UK government has essentially ignored the ECHR ruling.
