    • Small attachment to an iPhone that cost £288.00.   I know anything that relates to Apple can be very expensive, but what was the attachment ?   Did you return the attachment product in its original packaging ?   How often do you buy products from Amazon ?   How often do you return products to Amazon ?   Could Amazon believe you are buying products to simply try out for a period, with no intention of keeping the products ?
    • So I make a post and ask you some questions and you then go in and make a response which deals with something completely different and which ignores the questions which I have asked completely. I don't see how we can move forward on that basis
    • Thank you. First of all, this is not chronology so we don't have any sense of the timeline. It's still rather complicated – but maybe when you produce a chronology it will come more into focus. However, there are a few things that we can start to tease out. You say that you accepted £250 in an offer which was intended to reflect distress. Although you say that you accepted this offer mistakenly, it may well be that you have no further rights on this issue because of course it would have been up to you to understand the situation properly before accepting any kind of financial offer. However, it would be useful to understand the reach of this offer and so please could you post up the offer letter by uploading it in PDF format. You say that "high-volume messaging" is not explicitly covered in the terms and conditions – but there may be references to "fair use policy" and it may be an interpretive problem rather than looking for words which specifically match your situation. So it will be helpful to know what words Vodafone were relying upon and also what was the extent of your high-volume messaging. Did they give you any warnings. You say that they referred to terms and conditions which you did not sign. However, it isn't necessary to sign terms and conditions. We would have to understand more about the context – but generally speaking if there is an agreement which refers to terms and conditions from the outset and you then embark upon the agreement and use the services, then all the signs would be that you've accepted the conditions of use. Signed written terms and conditions are generally speaking only required in contracts for property or copyright or shares. You say that the contract was put in your sole name despite the fact that the company name was on the agreement. We don't have a chronology so we don't see how long this went on for and you don't explain why you didn't raise any objections to this – or maybe you did? You say that you have sent Vodafone and Lowell an SAR but "so far" you are waiting for a response. This suggests that you sent the SAR some time ago – but you haven't told us anything about when this might have happened. You are referring to obligations under the Consumer Rights Act but I'm afraid that these obligations refer to contracts between a trader and a consumer – and you are not trading as a consumer so these probably wouldn't apply to you. Finally, you are worried about expressing a claim in legal language. If you begin a small claim then you certainly don't need any legal language – and in fact that kind of approach simply gets in the way. Also, it seems to me that you are gearing up to bring a court claim – which is fine, in my book – but you haven't identified your cause or causes of action and you don't have a plan. I think we need to slow down and have a more careful and methodical look at the situation. Otherwise you're simply going to find yourself in trouble
    • Late to this, sorry - my wife claims contributory ESA and got her P60 about two weeks ago. Now I know she's overpaid on her tax and I'm just waiting for HMRC (the department I currently work for) to figure it out. They owe her about £150.

Made a subject access request to Santander. One of the acknowledgement letters they sent says this (in bold):

 

Please note that some documents, such as company internal policies and procedures, promotional materials, terms and conditions etc contain no personal data and therefore do not fall under the remit of subject access request.

 

If anyone here has made a subject access request to Santander, can you please check the Acknowlegement letters to see if it says the same. If it appears can you include a scanned copy of the letter on this forum.

 

The ICO has told me:

 

Santander may provide such information as a standard paragraph as it is simply a means of reminding people that such information does not fall within the scope of a SAR.

 

Santander acknowledgment letter also says this about call recordings:

many of our customer contact numbers are taped for monitoring and training purposes only, by the telephone advisors individual log in and not by a customers name or account number. These records may be time limited. Where located, calls will be provided either as typed transcripts or data on a CD-ROM; please contact us if you anticipate any difficulties with this. Where no calls are available we will provide you with accompanying notes.

 

Santander did send me call recordings, but one of the recordings had a bit missing from the dialog. I've reported it to the ICO. They've just got back to me after 2 months and said I need to ask Santander for the missing data. I'll probably do that, and let everyone know if Santander does locate the "missing data".

 

BTW, about storing call recordings under telephone advisor's login (and not by customer name or account number). I'm pretty sure the Data Protection Law says if a living individual can be identified from the data, then it's classed as personal data. Here's the quote from the ICO website:

 

It is important to note that, where the ability to identify an individual depends partly on the data held and partly on other information (not necessarily data), the data held will still be “personal data”.

You're quite right that if there are any references to the customer ID et cetera and these are accessible by means of a search, then they fall to be disclosed under the DPA.

 

Don't expect any kind of enthusiastic response from the information Commissioner. He wants a quiet life.

 

It's not surprising there are bits missing. Don't expect too much enthusiasm from Santander or any other institution about finding missing data for you.

 

Of course, you didn't really need these recordings did you, because you have been here since 2009 and so you know that you should be recording your own calls every time. Don't you.

I've subscribed to the CAG email newsletter since 2010, and always made it a point to read it. Must have missed the "warning" (in small print, mind you) on the right hand side of it each time or not quite understood "creditors" to mean all "banks" (even if you are dealing with the bank not on the basis of a loan, mortgage account etc.).

 

On the other hand, the 'Big Inflation coming' warning has got across more than sufficiently, and that only became newsworthy recently.

 

For anyone interested in recording calls. Here are some CAG posts I found interesting:

Or you can search the CAG forums for keywords: "record telephone call"

 

and a bunch of results come up.
