Parking & the DPA

fixed_penaltyI received this web link in an email from CONFUSED.COM which I thought was interesting so I’ve reblogged it. The DPA does feature (slightly) but it’s a good read.

Nothing more to say – enjoy reading it but remember that the DVLA sell on your personal data that you thought you gave them to administer your car ownership. An unlawful act? A breach of principle 2? No it’s covered by the Road vehicles (Registration & Licensing) Regulations 2002 which requires the DVLA (inter alia) to release information to anyone who can prove they have reasonable cause to have it. That wonderful word reasonable again…

If you’re interested in this there are many sites on the net that help out here. The attractively named AppealNow is one of them. Pepipoo is another. If you know any more let us know.
