The Norwegian Data Protection Authority says it will act on complaints made against the Jehovah’s Witnesses’ processing of members’ personal information.

Acting on “several complaints and tips,” the agency said it has sent a series of questions to the Norwegian branch of the global church.

According to the agency, the complaints relate to the processing of data held by judiciary committees, which act as the Jehovah’s Witnesses’ internal court system. Such committees can decide to take action against members who are found to have disobeyed the church’s protocols, which outlaw practices like nonmarital sex, homosexuality, and abortion, the agency said....

The article would not allow me further access, so this is all I have.

Well, look at the media source first. Then attach that with the actual laws that are in place in that country just like many European countries do with DATA PROTECTION the Watchtower adheres to. Another frivolous challenge!

Media sorce matters not. It seems as if the Norwegian Data Protection Authority  is acting upon information received.  So it seems there must be problems.

I still do field service with my Swedish friend.  They write letters when they see an address but do not write down the address.

I presume it it does not pertain to an organization one belongs to. One usually gives permission for your address to be held by an organization.  If this is not lawful then your work may not keep a record of your address or for that matter your bank details to receive a cheque or your pay.  This is a ludicrous  and frivolous court case.

I've heard (though cannot confirm) that the JW congregations / Elders, retain information even about  those who have left the JW Org.  I did think about using the Data Protection Act (here in England) to obtain all the info' that my ex congregation hs about me.

      I had quit the JW Open Club, so as not to be a cause for dissension …. which if I am not careful I can take over a conversation … as TTH ALLUDED to that, and he was correct.
      Under the circumstances, I feel if I do not comment, it would solve at least 3 points of concern.
      I have been thinking about this for several days and decided it would be appropriate to “belong” if I only commented if asked a question, etc.,and not post cartoons.
      Basically, the same rules at the Kingdom Hall, except I will be courteous to anyone that is courteous to me, except that for d’fd people, not to discuss any theocratic issue or “what’s going on”, etc., realizing it is a double edged sword that should cut both ways.
      With all that in mind, I again request approval to join the closed club mainly as an observer.
      The open club has evolved into a bat cave of crazy people.

      Hi, it seems we are the only two left talking about it as the rest have lost interest.  PITY, because they will soon see what is coming. I have always had a good imagination for understanding injustice. ..I watched the video about the injustice you put up.... very sad. We understand those things.....the other video is just a parody, of snippets of a very nasty person.... I do not know who she is but she was standing  next to the health minister.....
      I am not well, so I may not make it thru this system..... and I am happy to say maybe it is a  good thing.... I want to praise jehovah until I die ...but the opportunities are getting less.... and who wants to see people suffer?  If I were still around I would be severely stressed by it.  
      My father always said " know all, blow all" when people think they know it all.  And I have seen some pretty opinionated people on here. Mostly people who have had very little suffering and had authority in congregations.   
      I encourage you to stay strong dear sister and please devote more time to worship Jehovah in love. I also want to cut my time on internet ........ I spend time trying to find hidden  news about new developments in UN etc.  Soon all news about what is really  going on will not be available..... just mandates from governments and propaganda from the governments. People will be liquidated and we will not be able to get news about it. 
      Just stay strong. I am glad you spoke out about Australia.... I have a friend there who is too afraid to talk on internet.  They have already built  Covid "camps" in USA and Australia.... the  ĺorcing all "faith in god" out of everyone..  only worship of the state will be allowed. .... to compromise as many as he can.
      Strengthen yourself. No one can do it for you.
