Hi, welcome to Just Answer. I will help you with your question.
Yes, you do have recourse. You can demand (as you have done) the repayment of your monies, although it would be good to refer to his acknowledgment that you will be repaid in another email/letter.
Then, you should demand he repay you within 14 days. If he fails to do this, then you could sue in him the County Court by issuing proceedings online at www.moneyclaim.gov.uk
OK so the fact that he has acknowledged he will repay me (but only in 60 days) will not preclude me taking action in the County Court?
No, it doesn't. How much are you chasing from him?
£330, not an huge sum, but its the principle
Appreciate that - I was just thinking of the costs risk, but you have none as this is a small claims matter.
Can I do anything about the diclaimer on his webiste, the website carried my photograph and company name and I have made a sepcific request for him to remove it
You want him to remove your photo from his website?
Yes, when I first signed up I submitted my photo and company details for marketing puposes. I have asked for these to be removed and any refernce to my Company, he has not and says he will not comply.
Yes, this should be removable as it's personally identifies you, and the purpose for which you gave it is now over. So yes, make a request and if he fails to remove it, refer it to the Information Commissioner (www.ico.gov.uk/)
OK is there any particular category under which this would come, in refernce to the Information Commissioner or is it just a general complaint, is there a set period of notice I have to give him before I go to them?
You dont need to cite law to the ICO, but it's a data protection issue in one sense, although it could also be a copyright issue, but that'll cost a small fortune to pursue, so you're best using the ICO as it's free.
OK returning to the previous question re my refund, he seems to be suggesting that as I haven´t made a verbal request he has no obligation to refund me, I assume that this is complete rubbish?
Yes, of course it is. I've never head anything quite so ridiculous!
OK thanks for you help, much appreciated.
