We are a letting agent who received an inquiry from a women

Resolved Question:

We are a letting agent who received an inquiry from a women who wanted to view a property. The negotiator who took the call new the name as the ex-girlfriend of her friend. She checked with her friend who confirmed this.
The reason the staff member did this was it was her mother house the inquiry was about and she felt uncomfortable possibly renting it to her friends ex-girlfriend.
The friend has then contacted the ex-girlfriend telling her he knows she is renting in Crawley through Swan.
We have now received a complaint from the ex-girlfriend regarding giving out her personal information and breaching data protection.
All three parties new of each other prior ? Any thoughts, where do we stand
