Watch your step with crooked councils…


Dear Mr Xxxxx,

Here’s a hypothetical scenario.

·         Previously banned citizen advises council he’s going to make a DPA Subject Access Request.

·         Council responds to say that they are preparing advice to help with the process and asks for the relevant subject areas

·         Citizen responds with those areas (having been tricked into revealing them)

·         Council destroys much of the sensitive, would-be incriminating and potentially reputation damaging data.

·         Citizen makes the delayed DPA Subject Access Request.

·         Council truthfully answers that they only have in their possession a limited amount of data and responds by supplying the non-sensitive, mundane stuff left over that wasn’t destroyed in the pre-planned purge.

Please can you advise?

Best regards,

Paul Cardin
