Ok I think I'm in the right here but all opinions help as I'm not too au fais with the Data Protection Act :-D


I had a MDSW card which got sold to Goldfish and now Barclaycard.


I've SAR'd barclays and they've sent me just 6 years worth of statements... so I thought I'd sar MSDW as well as complaining to barclaycard (who ignored me)


MSDW didnt respond but passed the request onto barclaycard who again sent me 6 years worth of data.. so I responded to MSDW saying not to pass to third party and to either send me all data they hold on me OR a letter confirming they now hold no data...


guess what....


yep, they passed that to Barclays who wrote explaining how they hold the account now and will be providing a SAR under seperate cover, no doubt just the 6 years statements again.


I have 2 complaints in with ICO, both months old now and have just sent a LBA to MSDW warning I will take them to court unless they comply either by sending statements or a letter stating they hold no data on myself.


Am I thinking right in that MSDW at least have to send me a letter stating they hold no data on me? Do I have grounds for court action if required?
