Customer Question

I need to ask someone a startup business related question, have I come to the right place?
JA: Where are you? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: I live in County Durham England
JA: What steps have you taken so far?
Customer: nothing yet, I have a business idea that I wish to persue but need to ask some questions around it first
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: No, it’s literally for accurate information

Hi, I have an idea for a new website business that I wish to pursue, however, there are some questions that I’m hoping you can answer, I thought I’d come here as it involves the handling of customer data (with their consent) the website would also need a business directory, is there such a thing as a list of all the Uk companies that I could access?

If a company has a process for updating personal information e.g. call a specific department, can one of their customers send them a request via letter instead as the data belongs to the customer? (I hope I’m making sense)
Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 10 days ago.

You may use Webcheck to search for companies.

Yes, the customer may send the company a letter. However, it is up to the company how to address the letter subject to what resources the company has in place.

May I help further?
