A word of warning to anyone selling used postcards. It has been noticed that many postcards being sold on ebay are those which have been used as magazines' competition entries. These postcards contain such details as names, addresses, home and mobile telephone numbers, and even signatures. Under the Data Protection Act of 1998, these cards should have been destroyed by the promoters after the obligatory three-month holding period. The fact that they are turning up at all is currently being investigated by some of the magazines' legal departments. Receiving such postcards, and then selling them on, contravenes the Data Protection Act, to the extent that anyone doing so may be liable to prosecution.
