This is exactly why I haven't registered with LoTW, and won't register.
If they can't take enough care to run their website competently, how do
I know I can trust them to take care of my personal details?

Really, you want me to send a copy of my amateur radio licence and
driving licence or passport to some random person in the US?  No, I
don't think I'll be doing that...

People should have to sit a written exam similar to the old-style City
and Guilds RAE before being allowed on the Internet, never mind actually
running websites.
