    BPA data protection breach

    BPA data protection breach 7th Nov 17 at 11:05 AM
    Iím currently helping a friend of a friend with a BPA AOS Members PCN (donít want to say which PPC at the moment)
    Advised the RK to complain to the BPA for various breaches of the COP which they did.

    Also sent a version of the danielsan/LOC123 letter ref: PD and new protocol obligations to the debt collector who is now involved.

    Lo and behold, the BPA found that their member has not breached any of their Ďrulesí.

    Unfortunately in the reply from the BPA they have attached a load of info from a case relating to a different person.

    Info includes vehicle registration number, email address of the appellant, name and address of the appellant, their actual appeal, the appeal result and a copy of a letter indicating that there were equipment issues at that site and all PCNís between certain dates should be cancelled.

    Complaint to the ICO I think.

    You could not make this stuff up.

    I would be tempted to get In touch with the other person and point them here
    From the Plain Language Commission:

    "The BPA has surely become one of the most socially dangerous organisations in the UK"

    Get it in the public domain.
    We cannot provide you with a silver bullet to get you out of this. You have to be in for the long run, and need to involve yourself in research and work for you to get rid of this. It is not simple. We will help, but can't do it for you.

    PPC is Defence Systems t/a Park Watch.

    The site is Weston Favell ANPR in I think Northhampton

    Dates in question are 4th to 20th October 17

    I am obviously not in possession of somebody else's personal data, and would dispose of it if I was.

    You couldn't make it up ....
    Idiots please note: If you intend NOT to read the information on the Notice of Allocation and hand a simple win to the knuckle dragging ex-clampers, then don't waste people's time with questions on a claim you'll not defend.

    I assessed that it was probably more help to other people to disclose the PPC as requested by Umkomaas and Papa Golf

    My friends case is the same PPC but completely different location and completely different set of circumstances.

    Thanks for the interest though

    So calm down, no angry faces needed. If I knew bluetoffee1878 was helping a friend of mine I would be perfectly happy with the advice being given.
    PRIVATE PCN? DON'T PAY BUT DO NOT IGNORE IT TWO Clicks needed for advice:
    Top of the page: Home>>Forums>Household & Travel>Motoring>Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking - read the 'NEWBIES' FAQS thread!
    Advice to ignore is WRONG, unless in Scotland/NI.
