UK: Northmavine parents lodge SIC privacy complaint

Neil Riddell reports:

Parents in Northmavine have lodged a formal complaint about what they describe as a “blatant breach” of data protection during a school closure consultation, and are calling on Shetland Islands Council to “ensure our privacy is taken seriously”.

Last week the local authority issued an apology after personal details relating to “a small number of individuals” were inadvertently published within material relating to its consultation on whether Urafirth Primary School should remain open.
