(GDPR) Request for my data and account removal
« on: April 18, 2019, 07:26:57 »
Hi,

I would like to request a copy of all of my data this website stores. Moreover, what's the procedure for the account and it's related data including posts etc removal under the clause of "Right to be forgotten"?

Thanks

Hey Ammar_042,


Nice try to get your account deleted on here, though I very much doubt that this will actually happen. First and foremost, this website isn't that active anymore and is only used by server admins to look some people up whether they have cheated or not. Its database is however not linked anymore to any server as that isn't possible anymore because the API is not available any longer. Whilst this isn't any reason to formally take in account, it is something that should be considered before persuing your right to be forgotten.


The right to be forgotten that is located in article 17 of the GDPR is only applicable when we can speak of "personal data". Although it seems that this is "personal data", this isn't really the case for some of the data. "Personal Data" is defined as "any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person;" according to article 4 sub 1. 247fairplay.com most likely acquires several personal data, such as your nickname, your dynamic or static IP address and your EA/PB guid.

First of, your nickname is not data that can be directly related to you as the nickname itself is a pseudonymization of your real name. Henceforth, this cannot be seen as "personal data" and thus you will have no right to be forgotten there.
For the dynamic/static IP address and EA/PB guid you might have a point. The Court of Justice of the European Union has concluded in its case regarding Breyer/Germany that these kind of data can be seen as personal data in the light of the directive that was implemented before the GDPR (privacydirective 95/46). Assuming that this is "personal data", we would then need to see if this personal data is being processed. Obviously it is saved by 247fairplay.com and thus we can also speak of processing the personal data. Lastly we would need to determine who is the responsible person/company for the processing of this personal data. Seeing that 247fairplay represents the purpose of the processing of the personal data and invests in the activity of making this processing of the personal data available, they would be seen as the responsible company. This can all be read in the infamous Google Spain case. What can also be read in there is that in point/consideration 74 and onwards, that personal data on the internet can be processed legally for the purpose of the legitimate interests pursued by, in this case, 247fairplay.com, whenever it prevails over the interests such as the fundamental rights and freedom of the data subject, which is you. It is very likely that this exception is the case for 247fairplay.com. Their legitimate interests are to inform the public of your bad behaviour in the community of Battlefield. Seeing that nobody on the internet, except for EA or PB or any third party that EA has given your personal data too, can boil your IP address or EA/PB guid towards you as a person, you will not be hit in your fundamental rights such as privacy.

Regarding what I have said above, I do not deem it likely that what is your personal data, shall be deleted or altered. You do however have the right to get a look into your personal data that has been stored on this website and that is what 247fairplay.com should do.
