Hi all, I was wondering if this sentence is correct "All the information held on a user since his
registration... ". Wouldn't it be better to say "held on to a user " ?

No, "to hold information on something/somebody" means the same as "to hold information about
somebody" and both mean that some agency or organisation has information about something/somebody in
its files.

This si quite different to "to hold on to something/somebody", which means "to grip
something/somebody and not let go".
