A few months ago, I unsubscribed from DAOc, as I don't play it anymore.
On a whim, I checked my subscription information and it had scheduled me for resubscription.
So, I switched it off again and it was due to automatically take another subscription in the 1st of February, so it was lucky I checked.

Is there a way to PERMANENTLY be removed from the GOA records?

Only getting your bank to cancel your card, GOA steal from you whenever they feel like it.

Nice to see you back and bitching as usual. (waits for the "witty" comeback)

Anyway, he's partially correct. Your best bet, when subscribing to an online game, is to get a debit card specifically for that game, then when you're done, cancel the card. Makes it far easier to track your spending and stop paying in the end.

Could get a bit embarrassing if you manage to fill in an existing card number :)

Not to mention the legal implications...

Surely it must be possible to be completely removed from the records?
IT can't be legal to take someone's money after they have SPECIFICALLY unsubscribed?

You could email them mentioning the data protection act, remove your express permission for them to store your personal information, and ask them to delete all records. I think they're legally obliged to do that.

They are under both British and EU law, my sister (studying for her LPC) confirmed that to me a while back.

As pointed out, I have already removed autorenew.
But yeah, it came back after a while.

That's kinda scary.

I suppose I have to write a letter to GOA to make sure they remove me permanently.
I definitely don't want my CC details with them.

This is quite a few times now this has happened to people.

Any one from Goa care to shed some light on the situation?
