My business partner did this when we initially set up (many years ago before the internet Blush | :O ) and then quietly under the radar the UK decided to put all its records on line in public display. This is one of the side effects of ill-conceived pre GDPR policy, I don't ever remember them asking us if it was OK!

No it was not under the radar: It has always been this way, and quite rightly too. Limited company records have always been publicly available. Making them accessible via the Internet was just the continuation of the previous status quo.

This is nothing to do with "pre-GDPR". Even if the Internet had come along post-GDPR, these records would still be fully public. Why? Because limited company details are not private, should not be private, and never have been private. A limited company is not a person who can claim privacy (although it can be used as a legal person, but that's a different thing).

When you and your business partner set up your limited company pre-Internet, your company data was already publicly accessible via Companies House and its branches. When Internet accessibility came along, nothing changed. What was public before was still public afterwards.
