Another Way To Get Info Removed From PWL


Heres a how to article on getting your personal information removed from a Dutch hosted company.  I don’t know if it will work or not but I know many of you are asking.

Also Michael Fattarosi has said that he has had some success getting clients names removed, he may be able to help you as well.



This article is about getting stuff removed or corrected. It does not touch on any crimminal sanctions that might apply.

If a website has published your personal details, without your permission then under Dutch law TWO people can be held liable.

1) The website owner.

Notify the site owner. They are legally required to take your stuff down.

2) The Hosting Company

In many cases site owners are hard to find or unco-operative. Not to worry, the HOST is also responsible for correcting breaches, once they have been told about them.

Finding their contact details :-

a) Website contact.

If none on the site, and none in WHOIS, you are stuffed. Move straight to complaining to the HOST


The site domain WHOIS data should (even if everything else hidden) show “Domain Servers in Listed Order”, and the corporate name therein will be that of the hosting company.


Send an email to abuse@host cc postmaster@host and any suitable publically listed email contact on their site as follows:-

“You have personal data about me on X site. Details of the data so they can find and delete. Please remove. If not done within 48 hours a formal complaint will be made to the Dutch DPA”

Given them 48 hours.

Post/Fax your detailed complaint to the Dutch DPA making sure to add your name, tel number, email address, the details about you or file/page/url on the site and a reference to the fact that you asked the hosting company ABC to remove the data and no action has occured.

Most hosting companies will dump a troublesome website faster than you say “privacy” simply because they are not paid enough to justify a site causing them aggro. So if your breach is one of many, sites should vanish. If your breach is a one off, it should just get fixed.

  1. I should have guessed that Go Daddy was the host. They give out accounts to anyone who asks without investigating the person at all. They used to sponsor Danica Patrick in car racing and promoted cheap web site hosting. Unfortunately I think they are based right here in the good old USA (as your addresses suggest), so the Dutch can’t do much about it. Now if Go Daddy (or its host) has a server in either Holland or the Netherlands (both are considered Dutch, pick the one that has this law) you may have a powerful weapon, but you have to find out whether Go Daddy keeps its own servers in the USA or if they are a middleman and there is host for them that would happen to be located in Holland or the Netherlands.

  2. Why hasn’t their server kicked them off already? I assume they know what the site is. Maybe they’re friends of the people behind PWL.

  3. they are hosted at ecatel. ecatel is in The Netherlands and they are known for hosting sites that nobody else will. They are very expensive and will host anything.

  4. I know that some have, the old saying doe that it is the squeaking wheel that gets the grease. One or two people they can ignore, if they got bombarded with 15000 of these they wouldnt ignore it. Whats the flashpoint? I dont know.

  5. Yeah, I would love for everyone to speak up all at once. My main concern though is that Ecatel could possibly forward the e-mails to the nice folks at PWL. I have never dealt with Ecatel (nor heard of them) until now, so I have no idea how they do business, and I don’t get the impression they’re the type of company that gives a crap.

  6. Maybe it’s a silly idea, but might it not be smarter to contact a dutch lawyer’s office, or if you don’t know which one, ask a dutch adult site to do it for you. They might know which lawyer to contact & they’d probably be happy with the publicity. You’ll probably have to pay for the expenses though and even then I don’t know if they’ll agree to do it. Still, I don’t know how badly you want your private information removed, but it might be worth a shot.

    Freeones and Askjolene are two dutch sites. I’m sure there are more, but I usually don’t care where the site is hosted & what nationality the owner of the website has.

    My apologies if I’m interrupting a private discussion.
