Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
I am not entirely sure what is it you want to ask of me or want to achieve?
But have you disclosed his personal details to anyone else?
But nothing has happened yet? Did you discuss this in the course of a business or just individual to individual on a private basis?
Ok - then you cant be sued. The Data Protection Act 1998 etc does not apply. It makes no difference whether or not you mentioned his private affairs to anyone whilst not in the course of business.
There is nothing he can do as the DPA does not apply in that case.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Yes, because its a private matter. Individual to individual. In any event even discussing his married life isnt a breach of the DPA. Its disclosing personal information such as bank accounts, his address etc.
Its not about his marriage state etc. Whether its breach of contract is another matter, but that would usually cover a working relationship, not private matters.Does that clarify?
Does that clarify?
Sure. Just ask for me here!
All the best. If I could ask you to rate my answer before you go today, by clicking on the 5 stars or happy face at the bottom of the screen, otherwise the site does not pay me for the time spent with you today. It is also an important part of the online process. Thank you in advance and good luck!
