A customer of mine who has a self managed website designed by myself recently inadvertently uploaded a sample contract. When I say inadvertently I mean that the version that was uploaded was a full version with the name and address of the individual in question still on there. What he meant to do was use a generic "A.N. Other" but the sample contract was oversaved by a real one by mistake.
It wasn't a contract of employment or anything like that, it was a contract for the house he was letting out. The details on the pdf included the individuals name and the address of the rented house.
When this error was realised (by the individual) the contract came offline within around 10 minutes, but should he worry if the individual wants to take this further?
Yeah, I took a look at the whole act and nearly passed out, hence this post on the forum.
That's kind of what I would have expected. If there is a breach then you are given notice to correct it. If you don't correct it then you can be in trouble. As this was corrected immediately I would guess that he's in the clear, but I was interested to hear what others who know more about it think so thanks for your posts.
