Hi John, my my name is***** am a solicitor and am happy to help you today. What is the purpose of you making a Subject Access Request?
No it just helps me to understand the context of your question. Are you still employed there? What litigation are you proposing to bring?
Do you have any evidence of underhand behaviour or is it just a suspicion, is this personal data about you as an individual or about your business/ ltd company?
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
I see the expert has opted out - what else do you want to know?Alex
1. The members company could and would have used their personal emailaccounts to communicate information about us\me on occasions to avoid emails going into the company system - Are personal email accounts covered bar SAR's \ What conditions are relevant
If it is Company related and they were acting on behalf of the company then ONLY those emails relevant would be subject to SAR. The test is ANY data held on a data subject. The members are vicariously liable to the company2. Is there any other forms of communication covered other than the obvious, letters emails, can voice messages \ text messages be included for example ?Any data held which is about a subject holder is covered. So yes voicemails, text messages are included3. Can minutes of a meeting be requested - even a board meeting?No - these are documents about the business. Only if data is held by that individual at a Board meeting can it be disclosed. General conversation in a Board meeting can not be disclosed, as it is not data held about the individual4. if the information is under a company name as in the case of a supplier. EG the minutes might refer to company xxx ltd as apposed to the individual can this also be requested or can a separate request be made on behalf of company XXXSeperate request5. If company XXX is for all intent and purposes Fred Bloggs (and individual) can it be argued, that it IS the individual, (asuming companies are excempt from requesting SARS about a themsleves as a company?) or is referring to it as company xxx a way of bypassing SAR's
If data is held XXX or Fred Bloggs and they are trading, they are covered by the Data Protection Act.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
If it's commercially sensitive it won't be disclosed, but you have to be clear it's not just where you are mentioned, you are only entitled to a copy if they hold personal data about you.
Just talking about you is not enough, it must be personal data held about you.
A vote and results would not be covered. This is not personal data held about you.
Does that clairfy? Alex
It's is Personal sensitive data held by you. There is no test, it either is or is not, for example personal address or bank account details.
It's not circumstantial, they either have this data about you or they don't.
Yes doctors notes because that is personal information held about you.
Conversations about you - no, that's not personal sensitive data.
Any doubt raise an issue with the information commissioner as they can make a judgment www.ico.org.uk
