Personal Data of Former Employees on Company Website

Informal Resolution | 17 December 2019

Four individuals requested that their professional profiles were deleted from the website of a company they no longer were associated with. The owners of the website refused to grant their request, so a complaint was lodged to attempt to secure the removal of the personal data.

Our investigation focused on establishing whether the data controller for the personal data processed on the website was a Cayman-based entity. In the course of the investigation the website was taken  down, and the personal data was no longer being processed against the wishes of the individuals. The case was closed with no further action required.
