Hi

Thank you for your question and welcome.

My name is ***** ***** I will assist you.

This is potentially a breach of Data Protection legislation, what you should do is report them to the Information Commissioner - http://ico.org.uk/concerns

Also if you have suffered a loss as a result of this you might have grounds to sue them under employment contract if it contains confidentiality obligations?

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards
