Gathering and sharing information about firms

Postby ClayTone » Thu Nov 17, 2016 12:32 pm

I have a little question: It is acceptable by law and legal to do something like we can see on this website: https://zoptamo.com/s-boxing-c-us ? I mean sharing general data of gyms and clubs with users of the website.

I see nothing on that website except for advertising, which suggests that your question is no more than an excuse to distribute spam, which is not acceptable.
Well done for at least attempting to look genuine, and if you actually are genuine, then you'll need to come back with a reply pretty promptly...

Either way, it appears to be US based. We discuss the law in the UK.

Over here we are rather more ready to sue in defamation.

Isn't the DPA chiefly concerned with personal data about individuals, not companies?

The OP will be able to say whether any individuals will be mentioned. His link indicates a likelihood of this.

Many a gym will be run by one or two people and not through a company. Not most, but enough.
