BBC threatens to contact your boss if you post “inappropriate content” on its outlets
— Frank Fisher (@frank_fisher) May 17, 2017
A shout out to Frank Fisher for this nanny-state gem in the BBC’s recently updated Privacy and Cookies Policy (PDF):
“If you post or send offensive, inappropriate or objectionable content anywhere on or to BBC websites or otherwise engage in any disruptive behaviour on any BBC service, the BBC may use your personal information to stop such behaviour. Where the BBC reasonably believes that you are or may be in breach of any applicable laws (e.g. because content you have posted may be defamatory), the BBC may use your personal information to inform relevant third parties such as your employer, school email/internet provider or law enforcement agencies about the content and your behaviour.“
Of course, what constitutes such offensive, inappropriate or objectionable content – and that is conceivably rather a wide range of things – is nowhere divulged.
