There has been sensitive financial information released to third parties without the consent of individuals/business entities to which the information relates!
If it information of the business then no - the DPA does NOT cover that
If it is private information about individuals (ie such as addresses, bank details etc) then YES it is a breach of the DPA
The data must be sensitive personal information about individuals for the Act to apply
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Is there any recourse in law against a company that gives information to a third party without the consent of the principal?
For a company - no
For an individual - yes the Information Commissioner
Does that clarify?
Yes - Thank you
Service was Excellent - Thank you again
