Got this reply this morning:-

Good morning,

I am a little confused as to whom you are writing to as Guntrader.uk is no longer running and we have no access to that anymore.

If you are asking about your data with Guntrader media we had you first name, town, county, postcode, 2 telephone numbers and email address.

This information was bought from Guntrader.uk by Guntrader media.

However to alleviate your concerns, I have just deleted all your information from the system and we now hold nothing on you anymore.

Please do not re register.

Kind regards

Alexander

 

I have therefore served another Subject Access Request on Guntrader Media. I did not ask that my data be deleted, I asked how they came by it. Merely deleting it does not account for them retaining data which I did not give them. Requesting that I do not re-register seems an over reaction. I was interested in the data situation before, but their attitude to my request for information has made me unwilling to just let it go.

That reply is an ignorant two fingers gesture to you ,what a complete arrogant snake ,I really hope that you stick at it  .

I have requested clarity as to how I could change my password in the last few days

on the guntrader website if they are no longer trading.so if I placed an advert who would it be with if guntrader media then they have been given my data ,as yet no answer.

If I can help in any way let me know.

I hope I am wrong, but think I might just get a response to the Subject Access Request saying that no data is held. That would be a mistake and result in an instant complaint to the Information Commissioner.

When served with a SAR, I don't think you can merely delete any information and then correctly say that you hold no data. That would not cover how Guntrader came to buy my data or how it has been treated. If that happens, in addition to an ICO complaint, I think I will be contacting the interested Solicitors.

Looks to me as guntrader media has asset striped the defunct guntrader and purchased the data probably for a £1 

data is brought and sold by various businesses, but does one not have to give permission for data sharing in that way?

I would be extremely unhappy to have received that tone of response.  I've been in two minds as to whether to pursue this matter, and things like this really dont paint the management in a very good light at all.

The whole thing is starting to smell a bit "fishy" to me too.

I didn't like the tone of the letter. I thought it was unprofessional and slightly naive. 

I think I will have a word with the Solicitor. If they do it on a "No win, no fee" basis, I might have a go. According to their website, about 50 have signed up at this moment. It isn't the money - assets (from memory) £600k - that won't go far. I just object to anyone being cavalier with my personal data.

The solicitor should be able to advise if the Guntrader liquidation makes any difference to the claims.

Ok straight from a legal firm today ,all of these cases will be dropped if they can find out that Guntrader did not have insurance to cover the data breach,as there will be no way of claiming damages.

It looks to me like a simple insurance open and shut case ,so the fact that they put the firm into   liquidation point to no insurance in place .so no consequence to mr Andover just hope that the new company has learnt the lesson.

Isn't there a case to email/write to the police force that deals with that director's licence, and informing them that there is a serious doubt about them being of good character?

Would be funny if that guy had his licence(s) revoked... As we all know, there is no burden of proof here, it's really a question of the police force judgement of that individual.

It would also be funny that, without a licence, he wouldn't be able to.... *gun trade* ... :-)

They are just a medium for selling it’s just ads.
