Scottish Widows data protection error ‘costs customer £50k’

Tessa Norman reports:

A Scottish Widows customer claims the provider has cost him £50,000 after it breached the Data Protection Act by sending details of his pension to his ex-wife.

The provider has offered the customer, who cannot be named for legal reasons, £500 in compensation for sending the information to an unauthorised address.
