    • only half way through 30 day time limit yet...sent 30th?
    • 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).  
    • Thank you for the reply.No, he still lives there.   
    • What I would love to know is whether anyone has gone the small claims route for infringement (failing to supply all the data)...I'm going to start a fresh thread asking this now.... By the way, my former employer asked for a £900 fee to find all emails with my name included in them. I have had a rather tumultuous 11 months since then but am now back on this so will report them to the ICO tomorrow. 
    • might have been the same address althrough the mortgage but has he moved since?   if not doesn't need ctax copy.

    • 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....

bought a car that has developed a fault

Recommended Posts

Bought an Xsara Picasso just going on 30 days as I type this post.

Not sure where I fall into this catagory of statuary rights?

30 days or 6 months.

 

wife emailed the seller after closing hours so I guess it will be classed as next working day now putting us out of the 30 day rights?

 

Car flashed up ABS non function and hasn't gone off since.

looking on the internet that car is still safe to drive as it defaults to standard breaking (fail safe) just no ABS function.

Which I'm glad as she needs the car for work as has to travel around from job to job.

 

Now the seller might just say sure bring it down I'll take a look and sort it.

But if he does put a fight up where do I stand if I get the fault looked at myself at my cost and try and get the money back that way?

 

While the brakes still work ok I don't want to be hanging about with no ABS function for too long considering I have a small child (we don't do any motorway driving) so wont need to be braking at speed.

could simply be an ABS sensor that has failed

which is quite usual when seasons change [well on my car it does!]

but im in Scotland [2deg C tonight] 

 

the sensors are less than <£20 and easy to fit yourself once you know which one it is that's failed

you'd need a code reader for that.

 

see what the dealer says.

its for you to prove the fault existed at purchase and with sensors its pretty obv by dash alerts when it did fail.

 

pers I cant see the dealer being too anti helping you here.

as long as it is just a sensor and not the ECU connections

I did think it might just be a sensor fault..

.However does that not conflict with consumer rights?

 

I thought I was protected for 6 months so that a car purchase should at least be free from fault during that time?

 

I wouldn't have bought the car and drove it off the court if I knew there was a known fault?

hence the fault that has just started now?

unless he had the codes cleared and it's come back now?

The CRA does not cover anything related to wear n tear, maintaining a vehicle is the buyers responsibility. How old and what mileage is your car ?

Just an update to this, the seller never responded to the email sent and I just decided to get it looked at anyway which was a faulty sensor £80 to get fixed. This was on the front drivers side which had a timing belt change so could have damaged the sensor on that side.

Bumping this thread as the car has developed a new fault.

 

So the wife came to pick me up from work tonight, taking into account the car is now 2 months old and only done 1000 miles since we had it. She said it was feeling sluggish in first and second gear however she set off and it seemed fine, got around 1/2 a mile down the road and black smoke started coming out of the Exhaust and it did this sporadic for about 2 miles up the road before clearing.

 

We drove the car about another 2 miles and picked up some food for my daughter who ate it in the car sat parked...after around 30 mins we set off home no smoke came from the Exhaust but the car was slowly struggling to pick up speed 1st/2nd gear but was ok in 3rd...got about 2 miles down the road and the engine management light came on.

 

Car starts up ok...We paid £1600 for the car, 95k miles and put on about 1000 since we had it and now this problem.

 

This is just a joke now it's a diesel car where do I legally stand it's only 2 months old since we got it and first it was the ABS sensor now this.

 

We don't have the money to buy a new car and I feel ripped off by the seller if its a huge job we don't have the money which means no car and wife has no job anymore.
