Delete forumaccount

I'm not happy at all that this forum uses my real name and e-mailadress in my account. In the Netherlands we respect privacy. How can I delete this account. In the Netherlands a e-mailadress is optional and I want to delete these item.

Also this message is popping-up hundred times, very annoying.

Re: Delete forumaccount

I was very surprised and not happy that Symantec put my real name and e-mail address in the account. This is a privacy violation here and we use an extra / reserve alias email address for communication.

You connected my product to your forum and that is wrong. So I have to change my e-mail address in my Norton account or my product. I'm not happy at that at all. It is clear that you do not respect my privacy.

In the future I will look for another product because you leave my personal data lying around everywhere and suddenly they pop up in unexpected places. As in this forum account now. That should never happen.

I no longer accept your Accept Terms & Conditions of Use and withdraw all permissions.

Linking my purchased product with personally associated data to the forum is incorrect.

Re: Delete forumaccount

Delote. FWIW, I do not work for nor am I an employee of Norton/Symantec. Just a volunteer helping here on the forums. Please read the Norton Terms of Sale for your Norton subscription. There isn't a privacy violation or your personal information "lying around". Your Norton account information is NOT available to anyone here on the forums, but is required if you register to use the forums per the FAQ's . As previously stated, after initial forums registration it is the forums member responsibility to remove any information they do not want to be seen from their forums account credentials. As you can see from my forums account my real name isn't visible per my selection not to have it made so.

As far as your actual Norton account, your personal information is required, especially for billing and contact purposes. Your info is guaranteed safe and is not visible to others. Two factor authentication is available for those purposes. Please read this article. There is also the ability to opt out of ALL marketing emails after opting in, please read this as well.

Cheers

@delote

If you are referring to the information that is in your profile, the information you see is not the same as what other forum users see. This is all I am able to see of the information in your profile.


You can test this for yourself by logging out of the forum and then clicking on your username in one of the posts you have made. Then log in again and look at your account and compare the two screens.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.
