GDPR confusion and misinformation

No Mick it wasn’t me sorry.

I have been registered with ICO for 7 years so I just accept this and the many other things we do as a cost of doing business.

If you’re not prepared to do both companies I would register the new one and move all the data to it. But if you continue to store and process data in the old one you will have to get it registered.... Read More

Good point Mike, that's exactly what I have been doing for the last 6 months, learning from others.

The only hint of caution I would add is, not everyone is right. Pretty much everyone is dipping their toes with GDPR statements and proof of that is, I saw one yesterday from a very large national estate agent chain and they did not have Legal Obligation as one of their Basis's of processing, which is strange as they carry out ID checks for anti-money laundering (AML checks). AML checks are a legal obligation and as such, carry very few Data Subject rights other than the right to be informed. Failure to include this means that the Data Subject has more rights than you would otherwise want them to have, such as the Right to be Forgotten.

Mike, my new tenant application form includes signed authorisation to collect references from landlords lenders and employers.

I would expect any reference request coming into my office to contain a similar tenant authorisation. This has been the case even before GDPR.... Read More
