Dartington Hall Estate dossier ‘breached data protection rules’

A country estate breached data protection laws when it listed a campaigner as an Extinction Rebellion supporter, a data watchdog has said.

Devon’s Dartington Hall Estate published a dossier of group members campaigning to stop development on its land, including personal information.

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) said it “infringed” data laws by naming a woman as an Extinction Rebellion supporter.

Dartington Hall Trust has apologised.
