Hello Keith my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
How was the data obtained in the first place please?
Either verbally or in writing after being requested, eg "Can you give me your address etc we should like to include it in the Church directory"
Ok - in that case this is fine,
If you have obtained permission that is all which is required by the Data Protection Act
So yes, you have permission to publish it
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Sorry, not entirely clear. You say we have permission to publish it but does that definitely include providing it electronically for those who wish to have it in that format instead of or as well as in paper format?
If they have given permission you can publish electronic and/or paper
Many thanks. Is there a way of copying this advice as others will want to see it?
Once you rate the format changes so you can copy and paste it
If this answers your question could I invite you leave feedback on my service which I hope has been excellent today, if you need more information or help then please click reply.
Please remember that I am always happy to help if you have future questions, even if I am in Court I can normally respond within a few hours. For future information, please start them with ‘For Alex W’.
