      Sky Employee's And Company Confidential Information

      Just a heads up to those Sky employee's that unofficially post on here.

      Whilst not telling you how to suck eggs, please do not risk any potential trouble, by posting information that is company confidential.

      As a website, we fully appreciate your posting on here, to help others, but we do not want you to take risks and potentially lose your jobs over divulging such confidential information.

      We are not run by Sky, we will never will be run by Sky, we are here to help Sky Customer's as an 'alongside' to the official help channels. However, we do not have deep pockets and we do not have the funds in place to fight / defend any legal action that may take place, should Sky ever decide to take any further action.

      To be fair to Sky, they have only ever asked us officially, to remove 3 things over the past 5 years, and we have always told Sky that we would do so, if we were requested to do so.

      Thats the problem, unless your aware the said poster works for Sky the info could come from anywhere but Sky employee's are aware of posting such info as everyone has just gone through a data protection course (well engineers have).

      If you admin think the info is to close to the mark them temporary remove the post, seek advice from the original poster to where the info came from or ask Sky.

      If the info is ok then post it up, if its confidential remove it.

      Re: Sky Employee's And Company Confidential Information

      It's very well asking the moderators to watch what may or may not be confidential, but this really depends on the nature of the information and whether Sky regards it as confidential.

      Taking one extreme, it might be considered confidential to know that the boss of Sky likes a particular newspaper or watches BBC Parliament. Would you consider that the moderators should know this is regarded as confidential?

      On the other hand, knowing what Sky's LLU equipment is could be regarded as very sensitive, but not only is it known, members have also posted what chipsets it uses and which routers are most compatible with them.

      Sky flagged the information to us that they deemed to be company sensitive, so we immediately removed it. For the record, Sky were not horrible, nor arsy, and they asked us politely.

      The other issue is, according to one person it is not company sensitive, but to the company involved it is, where would we draw the line?

      We don't have an issue with people posting information, as long as it is not sensitive, and if it is, then we will rightfully remove it, if we are made aware.

      My point in the first post was to the employee's that have, or are thinking of posting any such information. Please don't.

      If Sky decide to take this further, they only need a court order type scenario and we would then have to give them the poster's IP - Sky could then do the same with the staff member's ISP and then that person could lose their job etc as they would have been identified.

      We value everyone's input, but please do not take any risks, or give any sensitive information out.

      If anyone does have any information and they are unsure, then you can always PM myself and then I can always ask Sky to comment etc before it is published, and if unsuitable, we will just ignore it etc
