    Re: Data Protection : Real life examples of consequences?

    Off topic, sorry...

    Did I say before.. In our 25yr old 6th form block I drilled into a mains circuit.. nice big spark and a melted drill bit.. called out Mr Sparky who tackled it with his shielded screwdriver.. bang - another shock. He tested next time before wading in, and found another distribution point connected to this circuit, totalling 3 - he said it totalled 72amps to the one outlet.

    It looked like a contractor had wired the building, left the distribution board wiring loose for someone else, with no previous knowledge of the job to finish.

    Lol, yeah, ours aren't brilliant, but I could tell the guy knew what he was talking about. He knew Ben (eduabncs) as well, which is always a good sign . LOL!

    Very true. I was thinking that as I typed it actually. As I said above though, I trusted what he was saying. He knew what he was talking about.

    Fair enough . But even if it was coming from me, contink would then be telling the teachers something that I had said had happened, so still hearsay :P.

    Who...what...me..???? :hiding:

    For Data Protection Act & Freedom of Information Act advice, have a talk to your LEA/Council information governance team, they will have one to oversee the councils obligations under both acts.

    I think you'll find they'll be more then willing to give you advice. And even visit if you ask nicely!
