Expert:  Ash replied 1 year ago.

Is it illegal what you are doing - no

If the information is publicly available.

However you need to be sure that the information is correct and accurate.

If it is not you could be in breach of Data Protection.

But in theory what you are offering is not illegal.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
