star this property answer text <p>The Government is continuing to assess the implications of the recent European Court of Justice ruling on the ‘right to be forgotten’. However, it is important to be clear that the ECJ judgment does not give individuals an unfettered right to have their personal data deleted from search engine results.</p><p> </p><p>The Government is conscious of the possible unintended consequences of the judgment, such as the administrative burdens for search engines in complying with the judgment, a potential increase in caseload for the Information Commissioner’s Office in responding to complaints and ultimately the volume of cases that may end up in the Tribunal on appeal.</p><p> </p><p>With this in mind, the Government welcomes the work being undertaken by the Committee of European data protection authorities to develop criteria to be used by search engine operators to consider requests for deletion. The guidance issued by this Committee will be of vital importance to search engines operators in striking the right balance between the privacy rights of individuals and other interests, including the public interest in retaining the information. Therefore as well as supporting search engine operators with the practical application of the ruling, the Government considers this guidance is the right mechanism for clarifying the rights and obligations provided by this judgment.</p><p> </p><p>At the same time negotiations on a replacement General Data Protection Regulation are ongoing in the Council of the EU, including on proposed provisions which are in shorthand called the ‘right to be forgotten’ provisions. The Government does not support the ‘right to be forgotten’ as proposed by the European Commission. It is not technologically possible to remove all trace of data uploaded on the internet and we should be mindful of setting unrealistic expectations for data subjects which do not exist in practice. The Government also consider that an obligation to inform other controllers of a request under the so called ‘right to be forgotten’ should be made clearer and more realistic. Therefore, we will continue to make the case for greater clarity and a more proportionate approach to this measure.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Article 4 of Regulation 1049/2001 regarding public access to European Parliament, Council and Commission documents sets out exceptions from the duty to provide access. These exceptions include those intended to protect internal deliberative processes where appropriate. For example, Article 4(3) allows documents to be withheld if they relate to a matter where the decision has not been taken by one of the three institutions, if disclosure of the document would seriously undermine the institution's decision-making process, unless there is an overriding public interest in disclosure.</p><p> </p><p>Article 3(4) also allows a document to be withheld if it contains opinions for internal use as part of deliberations and preliminary consultations within one of the three institutions, and if disclosure of the document would seriously undermine the institution's decision-making process, unless there is an overriding public interest in disclosure.</p><p> </p><p>The Freedom of Information Act 2000 also contains exemptions from the duty to release. For example, section 27 allows information to be withheld where its release would, or would be likely to, prejudice international relations. Section 35 allows information to be withheld where it relates to the formulation of government policy. Both of these exemptions are subject to a public interest test.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Claims Management Regulator (CMR) is making a number of reforms to provide better consumer protection, stricter conduct requirements and stronger enforcement action to improve practices in the claims management industry. The CMR will introduce in October a new set of conduct rules to crackdown on poor practices, particularly in relation to financial claims. The new rules will strengthen requirements for CMCs to ensure that claims are properly substantiated and any leads they receive through telemarketing are legally obtained. Subject to parliamentary approval, by the end of this year new legislation will give the CMR the power to fine CMCs for poor conduct. More resources have been deployed to tackle CMC non compliance and the names of CMCs under investigation or subject to recent enforcement action are now published on the GOV.UK website at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/claims-management-regulator-enforcement-actions" target="_blank">www.gov.uk/government/publications/claims-management-regulator-enforcement-actions</a>. Reforms have also been made to the internal governance of the CMR. Two non executive members have been appointed to the executive-led CMR Board to help bring a greater element of independent challenge and continuous improvement.</p>
