More Katie – plus pics…

Ok, in true Koptalk style the headline doesn’t match the story behind it. The pics aren’t anything created by Duncan Oldham.

As far as I’m aware he’s still not made up his mind whether to dry dressing Steve up in his mum’s clothes for the photos, or to just try and do some Photoshop work.

Aside from the obvious laughter to be found in this thread, there’s some serious points to be raised regarding the Data Protection Act. The points are raised on Koptalk, and despite using his three aliases in the thread, he’s not actually deleted the questions. It’s the same starting post as you saw earlier on this site, just this one was in the Gold Club. Or was it the other way round? I lose track these days, there’s crap everywhere.
Has he answered the Data Protection Act questions correctly? If anyone knows, please let me know either by email or in a comment.

And there are some pictures of “Katie” below, courtesy of, well, they know who they are…

I know that this is the maybe the wrong forum to post to but I just wanted to say hi to you all and explain why I am here.

My name is Katie and I’m working at koptalk until September on a daily basis. When I return to college I will be moderating in the evenings and helping out in the office at weekends.

My main role is to:-

# Maintain the membership database and keep it up to date

# Maintain the SMS membership database for the Gold Club keep and keep it up to date

Each day I check every username against our main database. If we have no address details for example, I then lock your account – sorry

This then prompts people to contact Steve who gets you back in again once your profile is up to date.

The reason we have a membership database is so that if anyone calls us we can verify they are who they say they are.

If you are locked out at any time, a quick call to Steve should see you let back in within minutes providing everything is in order.

The only email addresses you can ever email are as follows:

support@koptalk.com
editor@koptalk.com
steve@koptalk.com
office@koptalk.info

If you ever receive an email claiming to be from us, when you hit reply, make sure that one of those email addresses is where you are actually sending your reply. If in doubt open a support ticket at http://www.koptalk.info or call us.

If we need to discuss anything regarding your membership we open a support ticket on your behalf. You will then receive an email from support@koptalk.com

If you ever need support, do not copy all of those email addresses into your TO:, CC:, or BCC: fields as the system will reject your email and nobody will be able to respond.

The only address you can obtain support from is support@koptalk.com

It is best to call us if you need help because we can help you much more quickly. Our contact details can be found on the support site at http://www.koptalk.info

I hope you go easy on me as I’m a blond

Morning Kate! (although your post sounds like it had a fair bit of input from your boss!)

Dunk recently said in the support forum that the info wasn’t stored electronically (something about why he was exempt from Data Protection). Which is it?!

I’m not that bothered what you hold (it’s nothing you couldn’t get from 192), just interested.

It’s the rampant wildebeast I’d be worried about…

Welcome to the madhouse!

Just one thought — would it be worth posting this in a forum where those who have been locked out can read it? That way, if my account is locked (say), I could find out what to do, rather than wishing I’d copied this down when I could see it!

We do not need to be registered with the Data Protection Act as we are exempt for two reasons:
1) Accounts and Records are exempt unless processed or obtained from a credit reference agency
but more importantly:
2) No personal data is held or stored on any computer system

It’s not a big deal, but I’d rather know (indeed have a right to know) what info you have electronically.

Our member database is not stored on a computer. Accounts and data information are not processed or obtained from a credit reference agency. When a member leaves we shred their membership info.

We ask for your information so that if someone calls claiming to be you, we can confirm if it really is you. This is to protect you.

Nobody has access to our database and it is not used for any kind of marketing either by us or any third parties. The only way we would ever release someones details is if the police or similar organisations requested them.

If you would like to talk about this further with me just open a ticket and I’ll provide you with the information sheets relating to notification and registration.

Registration is a simple formality and it’s not expensive.

Hi Katie,
Just a thought, all acccounts have a password.
Surely it would be easier to ask that when corresponding with members to verify who they are a bit like most financial institutes.
Not that i have a problem as you have all my details anyway.

I think he is having gender issues.

Half the posts are written by him, t’other half by Katie. Presumably because she’s not going to pick everything up in a few days.

Damn it, did I miss a night of fun?

Instead of your competition to win tickets and travel for Anfield why not a weekly comp to koptalk HQ.

Morning Kate! (although your post sounds like it had a fair bit of input from your boss!)

Dunk recently said in the support forum that the info wasn’t stored electronically (something about why he was exempt from Data Protection). Which is it?!

If any information is held then a data handling licence must be obtained, this is weather it is in paper or electronic format. A data handling licence only costs £35 a year and can be obtained within 10 minutes online. I would be suprised if this site didn’t have a licence as the information they hold means they would legaly be obliged to hold one. Trust me on this.

Hi Katie. Thanks for the insight into the hive of activity that is the Koptalk Headquarters.

Just one warning for you, watch out for MattBiscan. As soon as he spots this thread he’ll be inviting you to the “Xmas Party” as he calls it.

Our member database is not stored on a computer. Accounts and data information are not processed or obtained from a credit reference agency. When a member leaves we shred their membership info.

We ask for your information so that if someone calls claiming to be you, we can confirm if it really is you. This is to protect you.

Nobody has access to our database and it is not used for any kind of marketing either by us or any third parties. The only way we would ever release someones details is if the police or similar organisations requested them.

If you would like to talk about this further with me just open a ticket and I’ll provide you with the information sheets relating to notification and registration.

Registration is a simple formality and it’s not expensive.

Once again sorry to harp on about this, a data handling licence is about handling data, this date includes addresses, date of birth, name and any form of payment details. As soon as you have this you need a licence. There is nothng within the law about doing credit searches or only being if data is held electronically. I have a licence as I hold peoples personal data, I do not have the ability to do credit searches and most of my data is on paper. In the law electronic and paper data is the same. you need a licence for both and all must be held in a secure area that can be locked.

I know that this is the maybe the wrong forum to post to but I just wanted to say hi to you all and explain why I am here.

My name is Katie and I’m working at koptalk until September on a daily basis. When I return to college I will be moderating in the evenings and helping out in the office at weekends.

My main role is to:-

# Maintain the membership database and keep it up to date

# Maintain the SMS membership database for the Gold Club keep and keep it up to date

Each day I check every username against our main database. If we have no address details for example, I then lock your account – sorry

This then prompts people to contact Steve who gets you back in again once your profile is up to date.

The reason we have a membership database is so that if anyone calls us we can verify they are who they say they are.

If you are locked out at any time, a quick call to Steve should see you let back in within minutes providing everything is in order.

The only email addresses you can ever email are as follows:

support@koptalk.com
editor@koptalk.com
steve@koptalk.com
office@koptalk.info

If you ever receive an email claiming to be from us, when you hit reply, make sure that one of those email addresses is where you are actually sending your reply. If in doubt open a support ticket at http://www.koptalk.info or call us.

If we need to discuss anything regarding your membership we open a support ticket on your behalf. You will then receive an email from support@koptalk.com

If you ever need support, do not copy all of those email addresses into your TO:, CC:, or BCC: fields as the system will reject your email and nobody will be able to respond.

The only address you can obtain support from is support@koptalk.com

It is best to call us if you need help because we can help you much more quickly. Our contact details can be found on the support site at http://www.koptalk.info

I hope you go easy on me as I’m a blond

Think i’m being stupid but when you say address do you mean home address? in which case I can’t see where it needs to be entered in the profile!

There is clearly confusion here.

We are not talking about your profile that is visible on the site. Only information that you put in there can be viewed. If you publish your email address on your public profile or on the forums, people can obtain it.

The profiles we have are offline and can not be viewed by anyone.

    fair play to the guys asking the questions. His answers aren’t very convincing are they….

  2. silentbutdeadly Says:

    Theres a definite contradiction on where they hold the data. They seem to be saying they hold it on a database, but then print it out and shred it when you leave.

    I’d be very surprised if they didn’t have it on a PC.

  3. rupertinsider Says:

    “The only way we would ever release someones details is if the police or similar organisations requested them”

    What’s a similar organisation to the police? MI5, MI6, Adult Date Finder?

  4. Koptalksucks.com Says:

    Course the info is on the PCs!

  5. barry wom Says:

    of course they keep it on a pc. to be quite honest if i was a member, i’d be getting the old bill onto them.

  6. rupertinsider Says:

    Thinking again about his police comment……. his claims that some TV cop was based on his father, his previous web sites involved in the security business, and (I think I remember- his selling of radios tuned to police broadcasts) – I wonder if he thinks its ok to use details of his members to inform on them to the police, or to private detectice or security organisations?

    As I understand it, it is wrong to provide private personal data to the police unless the police have a court approved warrant.

  7. lobster Says:

    dont sleep dunk, u wont know what hit you when you are asleep. 🙂

  8. rupertinsider Says:

    I repeete what I said yesterday …why doesn’t someone ask him why he does not give an address for KT? All he gives is a PO Box No.

    There is a much heavier onus on him to provide an address. He is asking people for money for membership in a business that might disappear, and for charities which are not registered, and for deposits on an non-existent book, and for goods and services.

  9. jj_sawyer Says:

    What people should do when he requests personal information is play him at his own game by providing a made up PO BOX address.

  10. Sinon Says:

    I didn’t think he was allowed to release any info due to the Data Protection Act unless requested by a judge?

    Is that the sound of a spade hitting the eaths core?

  11. Gumdrops Says:

    If he is claiming that he doesn’t need to comply with the Data Protection Act because his records aren’t computerised, then he is wrong. Even paper records can be regarded as a ‘Relevant Filing System’ and thus be caught under the scope of the Data Protection Act.

    http://www.ico.gov.uk has more info, under the guidance section.

  14. The Real Will Robbo Says:

    Katie does not exist… fact.

    Dunk likes men… also fact.

  15. punt Says:

    this is an outright lie.

    he is getting confused with the EU database directive.

    The Data Protection Act does not just apply to information collected and stored on a computer system, it also refers to ANY personal information collected and held in any form, whether that be an old fashioned paper based filling system or a computer system

    here are the parts from the act

    1. – (1) In this Act, unless the context otherwise requires-
    “data” means information which-

    (a) is being processed by means of equipment operating automatically in response to instructions given for that purpose,

    (b) is recorded with the intention that it should be processed by means of such equipment,

    (c) is recorded as part of a relevant filing system or with the intention that it should form part of a relevant filing system

    The act then goes on to specifically describe that the act applies to old fashioned paper based filling systems:

    “relevant filing system” means any set of information relating to individuals to the extent that, although the information is not processed by means of equipment operating automatically in response to instructions given for that purpose, the set is structured, either by reference to individuals or by reference to criteria relating to individuals, in such a way that specific information relating to a particular individual is readily accessible.

    “data controller” means, subject to subsection (4), a person who (either alone or jointly or in common with other persons) determines the purposes for which and the manner in which any personal data are, or are to be, processed

    so Duncan is officially a Data contoller as outlined in the Act

    The 1998 Data Protection Act requires every data controller who is processing personal information to notify the ICO unless they are exempt. Notification is the process by which a data controller’s details are added to a public register of data controllers, maintained by the ICO. This costs £35 each year, and should be done through the ICO directly. Individuals can consult the register to find out what processing of personal information is being carried out by a particular data controller. [b]Failure to notify is a criminal offence.[/b]

    Duncan is therefore an unlicensed Data controller (no surprise there) who is committing a criminal offence. he cannot be trusted with personal information IN ANY FORM as he is not permitted to collect and hold it.

    this criminal activity should be reported along with his breach of copyright law in relation to his unlicensed usage of the LFC fixture list which is protected data of the Premier League and his infringement on League media rights when providing unlicensed ‘commentary’ for LFC related games on his ‘radio station’

  16. Sinon Says:

    Cheers guys, I shall be writing to the ICO tomorrow. After I was banned I logged back in under my other username and saw Dunk in the shoitebox talking about collating information and having memos on file warning him.

    I wasn’t the first either, it happened a couple of times.
