Hello, my name is Ben and it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. What have they said about you to them?
They have forwarded the outstanding invoice and requested payment
Apart from the fact that we owe monies no. However the point is that no person should advise a third party of our business dealings which they have noting to do with. Also as the third party is our landlord is can become very embarassing not to mention awkward.
I agree that doing this can be upsetting and that it is morally wrong, but it is not unlawful. The supplier will be restricted from supplying information to third parties only on a handful of occasions – if there was a contractual policy or restriction on what they can disclose, for example if you have agreed specifically that certain information must remain confidential; if they are disclosing personal data about individuals; or if they defamed you by providing untruthful information about you. As this will not amount to personal data, and neither does it appear to be an untruthful claim, you are only really looking at the contractual restrictions that may exist and that may have been broken. Unless such restrictions exist and have been broken through their actions, what they did will not be unlawful, even if it would generally be considered morally wrong. However, morals and the law are to separate issues and you can only take action for things that are unlawful.
