    Does the legislation effect a person When a company has posted their details online without permission .
    Just an idea as I am guessing this was already completely illegal
    Is the company equally responsible when they have been hacked when this has happened or can they dispose of some ownership for the incident as they had no intention of this happening

    Will directories and companies like Royal mail be effected as they show names and addresses of every house or phone number on landlines

    This is absolutely covered. If the information was hacked it makes it even worse as the organisation failed in its duty to keep personal data safe.

    I take it.... personal directories such as 118 will be? I don't know about business directories such as Yell, Thomson, etc

    Equally, is a sole trader regarded as an individual in this case?
