Who values your personal details

This story in the

High street banks
have been dumping customer details in bins outside their branches, it was
revealed yesterday.

The Information
Commissioner's Office (ICO) said 13 firms “carelessly” threw away
customer information. 

The ICO ordered
the firms to sign a formal undertaking to comply with the Data Protection Act
and warned failure to abide by it could lead to possible prosecution. ICO
deputy commissioner David Smith said: “It is unacceptable for banks and
other organisations to carelessly discard their customers' information.

The banks and
firms who have been censured are:


Alliance & Leicester,

Royal Bank of

Scarborough Building Society,

Clydesdale Bank,


National Bank,

Barclays Bank,

Co-operative Bank,

HFC Bank,

Nationwide Building

The Post Office,

The Immigration Advisory Service.

Why have the ICO
not prosecuted these firms, why are the ICO not protecting your data. This is not the first time Banks have discarded customer data in this way.

These are the companies that will have access to all
your ID card information.

These are the companies that are not interested in protecting your data, it is obviously
too much trouble.

They, like the
government, want to control you with ID cards, make YOU comply with the rules
and take more of your money.



Say NO to ID
cards, Say NO to the Database state.
