I would like to resign from CACert and have my account deleted, mainly because I never really started using it and will not use it for the foreseeable future. The main email address of my account is <email anonymized>

Before: Arbitrator BernhardFröhlich (A), Respondent: CAcert (R), Claimant: P. Stevermann (C), Case: a20090926.1

History Log


Support reports that the account has not issued any certificates. It also has no Assurance Points awarded.


Since no certificates have been created, so there's no way that other CAcert members could have relied on them and no data is needed for certificate processing.

It is very improbable that any disputes are filed against this account in the future, so I judge that the user's desire for privacy beats the remaining risk of CAcert of needing his data for a future dispute.

I therefore rule that


Support reports the account is deleted at 2010-01-16.
