The Data Protection Directive mentions multiple legal grounds other than consent for collecting data, including contracts, legal obligations and public or vital interests. For example a doctor needing vital information from a patient when they're unable to share this themselves. In other words: is it possible to collect data stored within the Mydex environment, based on one of those other legal grounds, i.e. without the individual giving their consent?

Short Answer

No it is not possible to collect data from a members personal data store without consent.

It should be noted however that anyone may collect date from web pages themselves via the use of screen capture or print

Mydex CIC itself is subject to the same legal requirements of any other organisation should it be asked to provide information under its control by a correctly executed court order.  However all personal data stores are individual encrypted so any files provided would be encrypted and the relevant authority would have to seek access via the Mydex member who is the only one who holds the key.
