Microsoft Data Protection Register entry expires

Doh!

Thanks go to our chums at NTK.NET, for spotting that Microsoft Limited's entry in the Data Protection Register expired on January 8.

This means that Microsoft Ltd. has to submit an entirely new application. In the meantime, the company is, under UK law, illegally holding personal data. In theory, the Data Protection Commissioner could prosecute Microsoft for using personal information when in this expired state, NTK notes.

Microsoft Ltd's entry in the Data Protection Register is here.

Update: Microsoft is Innocent!
Data Protection Register is Out of Date ®
