No.  EU data protection laws typically (eg, in Britain) state that data
about a person belongs to that person and if you hold the data, you're
required to provide it upon reasonable request to that person (charging
a small processing fee is allowed) and IIRC you're required to delete it
if it's inaccurate.

Holding onto the data but not serving it is a violation of a takedown
notice and something that should only be considered after discussion
with expensive lawyers.

Peter has my sympathy for the situation he's in.
