Credit Style doing soft searches

This week I looked at my credit file and found a soft search from Datasense UK. I contacted them and asked who their client was, and they said it was a company called Credit Style (I think these are the same as CST Law?)

I imagine this relates to a parking charge I recieved letters about a while ago.

Is this a new thing now? Are debt collectors doing soft credit searches before deciding to make a court claim? If so is this not outrageous?
