original Dispute

second dispute mergend into this case from a20140815.1

Dear Arbitrators,

As CAcert's internal Auditor, I would like to open a dispute against
supporter Werner D[...].

Audit got aware of a attempted data privacy breach and abuse of
supporter power by named supporter, documented in i20140814.1 [1]. Audit
has not the tools and power to prosecute an individual based on his/her
misbehaviour. Therefore, I'd would like to ask arbitration to take over
the case and handle the individual prosecution against named supporter.

The Supporter violated § 8 in conjunction with § 9 Privacy Policy [2] by
attempting to look up the data related to an email address posted to the
public mailing list ( with a support
question. Based on his statement, the attempt was not successful, since
the address does not exist in our database.

This case might be related to [4].

Best Regards


pre Arbitration Activity

Update of claimant

Benedikt who filed the case as internal auditor has resigned from that post and so far there was no successor. By this it seems that the role of claimant has fallen to CAcert represented by board. Board has agreed with this point of view via motion motion m20160921.2. Benedikt did not respond when he was informed about according considerations.

Benedikt as a person is not party of this case.

Further details can be found in the history log and in FrOSCon-2016-Report a report of a session to clarify the future of a multitude of cases where the filing member had resigned but which possibly looked as cases filed in a CAcert role. The current case was one of them.
