Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50169424
  • Date: 8 January 2008
  • Public Authority: Information Commissioner
  • Summary: The complainant made a request to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) for the postcodes of all employees at the ICO. The ICO disclosed to the complainant the first half of the postcode but refused to disclose the second half under section 40(2) of the Act, ‘personal data’. The Commissioner has investigated and found that the information withheld is personal data and that disclosure would breach the first data protection and was therefore exempt under section 40(2) of the Act.
