RIPE has collected personal information about me that led to them blacklisting my business from accessing the whois database. When i ask for disclosure of the information they collected about me the answer I received from RIPE NCC is: "Unfortunately we cannot provide you with such information. It is considered to be confidential information and thus cannot be disclosed to the public." Who considers it "confidential information" and for what reason? I am asking for information collected about me and not "public" disclosure. I though EU companies had to disclose the personal information they collected about people? I guess they figure there is no much a foreigner can do so they are going to disregard these privacy laws? So much for EU privacy protection! Thank You
