A while back, somebody who is not related to us noticed HotCampus.
A few days later, it arrived at a participating university. Professor figures it is spam, because he/she/it has never heard of HotCampus or signed up. Given that HotCampus only started operations roughly two months ago, it’s not altogether surprising.
Something calling itself “ScienceDomain International Ltd”, apparently of Third Floor, 207 Regent Street, London, W1B 3HH, continues to turn up in spamtraps. They have existed as an UK company twice, but both registrations have been dissolved (Reg. No 07794635 – Dissolved on 14 January 2014; Reg. No 08988029 – Dissolved on 24 November 2015). Nonetheless, they process personal data without having ever registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office, which in itself is a criminal act in the United Kingdom.
