    • Hi all,   I am trying to find out if anyone has issued a DSAR to an organisation, been ignored or given incomplete data, therefore the organisation has infringed the regulation and quite possibly caused material or non-material damage, and took them to Court over it?       https://gdpr.algolia.com/gdpr-article-82 Art. 82 GDPR Right to compensation and liability Any person who has suffered material or non-material damage as a result of an infringement of this Regulation shall have the right to receive compensation from the controller or processor for the damage suffered. 1Any controller involved in processing shall be liable for the damage caused by processing which infringes this Regulation. 2A processor shall be liable for the damage caused by processing only where it has not complied with obligations of this Regulation specifically directed to processors or where it has acted outside or contrary to lawful instructions of the controller. A controller or processor shall be exempt from liability under paragraph 2 if it proves that it is not in any way responsible for the event giving rise to the damage. Where more than one controller or processor, or both a controller and a processor, are involved in the same processing and where they are, under paragraphs 2 and 3, responsible for any damage caused by processing, each controller or processor shall be held liable for the entire damage in order to ensure effective compensation of the data subject. Where a controller or processor has, in accordance with paragraph 4, paid full compensation for the damage suffered, that controller or processor shall be entitled to claim back from the other controllers or processors involved in the same processing that part of the compensation corresponding to their part of responsibility for the damage, in accordance with the conditions set out in paragraph 2. Court proceedings for exercising the right to receive compensation shall be brought before the courts competent under the law of the Member State referred to in Article 79(2).

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

Hi

This is my first thread so i hope im doing this right. I need some advice.

 

I borrowed £200.00 from safeloans on 25 February 2012, i had to pay back £250.00 on 25 March 2012, but i couldnt so I contacted them, apologised and promised to pay the amount borrowed back on 25 April 2012. I was bombarded with emails and texts messages telling me I was in default, which according to them is standard procedure even if you have contacted them.

 

As promised I paid £250.00 being the amount borrowed and one months interest on 25 April which they have received. They are trying to get a further £158.00 from me which is £30.00 broken arrangement fee, £12.00 late payment fee and the rest is daily interest.

 

Where do I stand? I am prepared to pay the £30.00 broken arrangement fee, because I borrowed and was 1 month late paying it back. They have offered me a plan to clear the rest of it off, but its there extra charges. Im not sure what to do.

Send them the phonecall harassment letter from the library on this site. If they break it then they are risking a heavy fine from OFCOM. Tell them that you have already paid the loan plus interest. Theyd be hard pressed to explain the other charges in court, especially the daily interest amounts. They could make an argument for the late payment/default, but definitley not a "broken arrangement" fee, whatever the hell that is, plus the interest.

Don't worry about it. PDL's are well known for trying to take more than they are legally entitled to.

Talk about ping pong email - this is the latest email I had today: They dont aknowledge what you have already paid or even come to a compromise.

 

PLEASE RESPOND TO THIS EMAIL URGENTLY.

 

Thank you for your email.

Please advise we are not charging you interest on interest. When you agreed to the loans term and conditions it advise you of your payment plan which you set up you self.

Which the system advise you of how much interest you would be charged as long as the payment was made on the day you agreed on.

In this scenario you have DEFAULTED on your loan which mean you will received fees on your account as well as daily interest after the date you agreed to pay on.

Please go on our Website and please read the TERMS&CONDITIONS.

This will explain all that you need to know of daily interest and fees on the account as you agreed to the terms and conditions.

 

 

Regards

Safeloans Ltd

Tell them that just because it is in the terms and conditions it does not make it legal, fair nor right.

 

If this went to court the fact that you contacted them, they refused and then you repaid the original loan and interest in full unprompted by them would be a good defence.

 

They are on a sticky wicket here.

 

Try and contact Croydon Trading Standards about them with a complaint tell them you have repaid the loan and interest and they still want more.

Chillover, I think you need to read the thread properly, the original poster has repaid the loan and interest, albeit late and should not be harrassed by this bunch.

 

A complaint to the OFT and Trading Standards is in order as the company are clearly trying to unjustly enrich themselves. Just because it is in the terms and conditions does not mean it is legally enforceable in a court of law.

Make sure you make it absolutely clear to them that you have already paid off the loan in full but even so they added charges to a fulfilled debt and are chasing you for money that you clearly do not owe them.
