Re: contest logs available for download -- background?

The US approach to privacy is different to most of the rest of the world. I specifically mentioned GDPR, the EU General Data Protection Regulation, which applies to personal information on Europeans wherever the information happens to be – including on the Internet and in the US. Other privacy laws (including the new California Consumer Privacy Act for one) generally embody the privacy principles originally defined by the OECD many moons ago.
Anyway, the bottom line is that there MAY be legal implications to publishing contest logs. Once again, IANAL – just someone with an interest in privacy etc.

Your full name and address are on QRZ. There is a picture of you and your dog. So, I'm not sure why it would matter if it was included in a public contest log. QRZ is a public website, therefore making your name and address public. Do a Google search of your call sign and you will see a list of stuff comes up that is also biblically available.
