Commissioner: AIB’s Misreporting Violated Law
PRIVACY LAW—IRELANDAugust 9, 2012
RTÉ News reports that Deputy Data Protection Commissioner Gary Davis has said AIB “supplied inaccurate personal data” to the Irish Credit Bureau (ICB) in breach of data protection law. The misreported data resulted in individuals being denied credit, the report states, noting AIB has confirmed the incorrect reporting of missed loan repayments to the ICB over a six-year period. Davis is urging those affected to get copies of their credit reports to ensure their information is now accurate.
