Please remove my account at CAcert as I will not have to use it. (I thought I did) No certificates have been issues or used.

Before: Arbitrator BernhardFröhlich (A), Respondent: CAcert (R), Claimant: M. H. Jensen (C), Case: a20091116.1

History Log


Support confirms the Claimant's statement that there have been no certificates issued by this account.

No significant difference to case a20090926.1 can be found.


Mirroring the ruling on case a20090926.1 I give the same ruling:

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


2010-01-18 A: Sent request to support to delete the account.

2010-01-28 Support confirms that the ruling is executed.

2010-01-28 A: Notified the Claimant that the account is deleted.
