Mark Kahl the director of Baby’s Days has yet again said I am a liar, here is the post and I’ve annotated it to include the actual reality and facts.
You can find independent information on this issue all over the internet, just google, “cloud saas dpa”. You can also read this, http://www.ictknowledgebase.org.uk/dataprotectionandweb or contact the ICO yourself. Their number is 0303 123 1113, ask them very simply, “I use a cloud based data processor, I don’t have a contract with them only T&Cs agreement, am I meeting my obligations under The Data Protection Act?”.
I’m informing Baby’s Days users and prospective users of this information, what they do with the information is down to them. I don’t want to get into a tit for tat row with anyone. Now the facts are clear and you have the resources to check the facts you can make your own informed decision. If you don’t want to verify the facts then that is your decision.
I’ve got to get back to planning a wedding otherwise what good is annual leave! Only 23 more days and still haven’t had my dress fitted, eeekk!
PS. If you’re looking for the blog post where I talk about your obligations under DPA then it’s here. And for the record I don’t admin on any facebook groups or have any connection with any online programmes and I didn’t cancel my Baby’s Days account – it was terminated because the T&Cs were changed deliberately to ensure I was in breach of them. This is not a vendetta, it’s a fact finding mission that I’m sharing with everyone so they can protect their data in whatever way they chose. I’ve always said the software is fab, but there are bugs that are hard to address through the customer service channels available because some customers are treated very badly buy the support staff.
