Privacy Alert.


'UK e-mail law 'attack on rights'

Everyone who have a concern for their privacy are warned not to communicate with People/businesses located in U.K, after 1/March/2009 ,using E-mail.

This is due to the fact the every E-mail's  data (sent from  or received in )  U.K  will be recorded by the British government. It will be stored for a period of 1 year.

So if you have any concerns for your privacy,you are requested to use other means of communication,instead of using E-mail.e.g sms,phone call

If you think privacy is not a concern then you should read George Orwell's  "Nineteen Eighty-Four".
