Artist's Profile on Art Website

Informal Resolution | 05 December 2019

An artist contacted the owners of an art website requesting that they take down his public profile as he no longer wished for it to be available on that website. The owners of the site refused to comply with his request, so he asked us to ensure that his personal data was removed.

We found that the website was not hosted in Cayman, and the company that owned it was not established here. Since they were not a data controller under the DPL and the data was not being processed in Cayman, the complaint was out of our jurisdiction and the case was closed.
