Going by some of the statements above, and the below taken fromt eh DPA:

Quote:
Personal data shall be processed fairly and lawfully and, in particular, shall not be processed unless— (a) at least one of the conditions in Schedule 2 is met, and
(b) in the case of sensitive personal data, at least one of the conditions in Schedule 3 is also met.
Quote:
Subject to paragraph 3, for the purposes of the first principle personal data are not to be treated as processed fairly unless— (a) in the case of data obtained from the data subject, the data controller ensures so far as practicable that the data subject has, is provided with, or has made readily available to him, the information specified in sub-paragraph (3), and
(b) in any other case, the data controller ensures so far as practicable that, before the relevant time or as soon as practicable after that time, the data subject has, is provided with, or has made readily available to him, the information specified in sub-paragraph (3)
Quote:
The information referred to in sub-paragraph (1) is as follows, namely— (a) the identity of the data controller,
(b) if he has nominated a representative for the purposes of this Act, the identity of that representative,
(c) the purpose or purposes for which the data are intended to be processed, and
(d) any further information which is necessary, having regard to the specific circumstances in which the data are or are to be processed, to enable processing in respect of the data subject to be fair.
So in theory, if your not told in the terms and conditions your data would be processed for six years, it could be stated that your information is being processed un fairly?
Could this also be the reason why terms and conditions are now stating the fact that info will be processed for six years?

Would also be interested to find out what the mean by "lawfully"
