Warning issued regarding unsolicited emails



Trading Standards Officers at Peterborough City Council have issued a warning to companies in the area concerning unsolicited emails they may receive.

Some emails are offering services to register clients with the Data Protection Registrar for a fee.

Many people and organisations have details about consumers on computer or in paper files. To ensure this information is handled properly there are laws to ensure its accuracy. It is not necessary to have an agent acting for the company.

Although not illegal, companies may be misled into thinking they have to register through an agent. This can be done simply by contacting the Data Protection Registrar directly.

Roger Woodthorpe, Section Head of Trading Standards for the city council, said, “Companies should be reminded that they do not need an agent to register directly with the Data Protection Registrar. They can contact the registrar themselves and pay the fee of £35 per year directly.”

For further information contact Peterborough Trading Standards on (01733) 453532 or the Information Commissioner, Data Protection Office, on (01625) 545700
