We cannot answer the request because involve personal data, we are refusing the request unedr section 40(2) of the Freedom of Information Act.


Section 40(2) – data protection

This exemption covers the personal data of third parties (anyone other than the requester) where complying with the request would breach any of the principles in the Data Protection Act.

The most common reason for refusing information under this exemption is that it would be unfair to the individual concerned. Section 40(2) is an absolute exemption, so you do not need to apply the public interest test. However, you may need to consider the public interest when applying the data protection principles
