Find out if the UK used NSA data to spy on you


While it’s sadly likely that your
communications have passed
through an intelligence agency at
some point , it’s usually difficult
to know just who got your data.

However, you now have a rare
opportunity to find out. Thanks
to a ruling that the UK’s GCHQ
illegally spied on people using
NSA databases, advocacy group
Privacy International has posted
a simple web form that lets you
ask if you were caught in
Britain’s law-breaking dragnet —
and, as you might expect,
petition against mass

This won’t provide the most comprehensive results
(you should use the official form
if you’re really worried), but it
should still lead to GCHQ purging
the relevant records if there’s a
match. The only big problem?

The request is limited to the
past data covered by the ruling,
so there’s no guarantee that
you’re truly off the radar .
