Date of Response: 09/07/2010
Request:
1/ Please provide details on the procedures and processes involved by the ICO investigating a complaint of a data protection breach committed by a large organisation such as Police.

2/ If the information provided to the ICO investigator by the organisation during investigation, is incorrect, misleading or otherwise flawed, (perhaps because the organisation is attempting to cover up and/or 'blacken' the complainant's name) do the ICO take action? If so, what action is taken?

3/ How do the ICO determine if a statement made to them (which contains incorrect personal data), is an opinion of the person making the statement?

4/Do the ICO assume an incorrect statement containing inaccurate personal data, is merely an opinion, and therefore not worthy of further investigation or correction?
