HI, I run a few UK websites where the public can publish information, i.e. adverts, forum posts etc.... We sometimes get requests for information from trading standards, councils and the police regarding users on our websites and we are asked to provide all the data which we hold on the user, including old posts and adverts etc... When these cases reach court proceedings, we are often asked to sign a witness statement and possibly attend court if required, which could be any court in the UK, depending on where the user is located. I'm just wondering if any other business owners on here have a similar experience, and do you actually have to sign a witness statement and attend court? It is very difficult as we are only a small family run business, and do not have the time to be attending court proceedings. Plus the only thing we could actually say in court, is to agree that the data we provided was data taken from our websites database.
