    I thought the site was Yorkshire base so is covered by Dane Law :D

    Talking to the Admin of a much larger website/forum recently it seems that they have to ask "Permission" to store any personal data so a blanket email will be sent out, they've also had to add SSL.

    While there's logic to policing personal data there's also a reality that sites like this don't gather much useful to others, but we don't want our contact details being sold or passed to third parties without explicit permission. That's any forum or website we join, not specific to here.

    Although having SSL is a way forward I think it o only becomes compliant if the website is actually setup as an commerce website.

    very true, we are a very tiny fish on the internet but having said that I will try to do as much as required to keep the people upstairs happy.

    Like any website/forum, implementing such things like SSL Certificates do come at a cost and I guess the large forums will have revenue from Google Adwords and possibly advertisers.

    I'd have to double check but I think the SSL Certificate was $11 a year for a site that dwarfs this one by more than a thousand fold, so not expensive or unaffordable.

    $11 a year sounds reasonable
