I was wondering if anyone has used their country's privacy laws to obtain copies of their disfellowshipping, and publisher records from the WT Society (and perhaps get them destroyed too. The records, not the WTS!).
I'm in Australia, and the law says (according to my research), that they do need to provide you with a copy upon request. I've adapted a template from the CIA FoI site to read:
Dear Sir or Madam:
Under the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) and National Privacy Principles 5 and 6, please furnish me with copies of all records about me.
To help identify information about me in your record systems, I am providing the following information:
Full name: XX
Date of birth: XX
If you deny all or any part of this request, as per National Privacy Principle 6.7, please cite each specific exemption that forms the basis of your refusal to release the information.
If you have any questions about handling this request, you may telephone me on XXXX.
PS: Why no preview function for posts?
