On receiving the complaints the Council considered information on the

Following the investigation, the Council issued a letter to the Community

Dear Mr Jamieson,

 

Thank you for your information request of 22 September 2017.  Aberdeen
City Council (ACC) has completed the necessary search for the information
requested.

 

Please provide copies of all the correspondence detailed in your most
recent response (FOI-17-1244).

Please see attached.

 

ACC are unable to provide you with some emails as they contain, in their
entirety, personal information about third parties and is exempt from
disclosure.  In order to comply with its obligations under the terms of
Section 16 of the FOISA, ACC hereby gives notice that we are refusing your
request under the terms of Section 38(1)(b) in conjunction with
38(2)(a)(i) – Personal Information - of the FOISA.

 

Also, please note that third party names and personal details, as well as
the names of ACC Officers who are below Head of Service level have been
redacted (blacked out) from the attached documents as it is exempt from
disclosure under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.  In order
to comply with its obligations under the terms of Section 16 of the FOISA,
ACC hereby gives notice that we are refusing your request under the terms
of Section 38(1)(b) in conjunction with 38(2)(a)(i) – Personal Information
- of the FOISA.

 

In making this decision ACC considered the following points:

 

ACC is of the opinion that Section 38(1)(b) applies to the information
specified above as any information held is personal information relating
to living individuals, of which the applicant is not the data subject.

 

ACC is of the opinion that Section 38(2)(a)(i) applies, as we consider
that disclosure of this information would be a breach of the first Data
Protection Principle (that personal information must be processed fairly
and lawfully). These individuals have not consented to the disclosure of
their information, and ACC does not consider that they would expect ACC to
release this information about them into the public domain under the
FOISA.

 

We hope this helps with your request.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Grant Webster

Information Compliance Officer
