Investigation Concludes Recycling Company Did Not Breach Act
PRIVACY LAW—IRELANDFebruary 24, 2012
An investigation by the data protection commissioner has concluded that Dublin City Council's transfer of information to a private recycling company did not breach privacy laws, reports The Irish Times. The investigation followed a number of complaints from the public after Greyhound took over the council's bin collections. The council has agreed to comply with all data protection guidance should a similar situation occur in the future and put in place an audit procedure before any debt collection data is transferred from the council to Greyhound.
