    • 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.
      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....

I had a small leak & across the road the elderly lady was having her roof replaced they seemed to be doing a good job,

I asked if they could come & look at mine.


Big mistake he said the batons needed replacing, re felting & insulating & my tiles put back on as there is nothing wrong with them,

for the whole roof he quoted £3,800.00, told me it would take 3 days,


the first day he asked for £300

then the next day another £300

& the day after another £300,

then he came back same day for another £100.


Then the next week because it was held up by bad weather he asked for another £1200 on the condition he finished the job,

then the next week my roof still no further on he said he would be getting the lads to finish it the next day & could I give him some more money,


I said no only when job is completed,

he went away came back later & said he would put new tiles on for the same price if I gave him another £1200 for the new tiles


I did in total

he has had £3400 off me & keeps saying he will give me receipts which he hasn’t although I wrote it all down.


Monday my tiles at the back started to be put back on & he came & asked for money to pay the lads on the roof

I told him he isn’t getting another penny until the job is completed,

then later that day the lads walked off as they hadn’t been paid.

It has been over three weeks now..


He came yesterday to apologise

I told him I had had enough to just put my tiles back on the back & to please leave me alone


I don’t want him doing the rest of the house

I live in a bungalow so there are the back side & front,

I just want rid of him I know I will lose money but his constant harassment is making me ill.


Then then he said the polish lads that he had on the roof had broken a lot of my tiles,

so he would have to go to a reclamation yard to see if he could get some to match they are old clay tiles.


Please don’t lecture me on what I already know I’m stupid for falling for it & even stupider for giving him money without a receipt.


Please if anyone can give me some advice on how to handle this

I would be so grateful as I am a pensioner & can’t take much more.

I’m getting frightened of him coming to my door asking for more money.


The elderly lady who he put the new roof on came across yesterday in tears he hasn’t finished hers completely as some tiles need cutting in & ridge tiles replacing, he is harassing her for money as well she has paid him over £8000.00


Please any advice as to how to go forward will be so appreciated.

Thanks in advance

As you are a pensioner and paid a lot more then what you got, next time he shows up call the police and tell them you're frightened.

Go on a local community forum and ask for help, you'll be surprised how many people help pensioners in exchange of a good cup of tea and biscuits.
