    I say a big NO! You could be looking at a lawsuit depending on what was released. If it's info that can be found in public records like an address or phone number then no. If it's a birthday that may not even be an issue. If it's your social security number or credit card info, then yes it's a problem.

    Forgot to add this. If you gave up the information voluntarily and clicked a box and the end of a bunch of legal stuff, asking if you agree then you may not have any recourse. If you agree to their terms, it may have said they can use this info in any means they see fit. By you clicking "I Agree" you made a contract with that site.

    If you got proper permissions/ license or whatever legal ways, then you can, but without their knowledge you can not do this/ never.

    Hi,

    No, you cannot upload a newsletter containing personal information about members onto a website without their knowledge. If, want to upload personal information then you need to get legal permission of members to do this. I hope it will be helpful for you.

    Thanks & Regards
