Section 40 Personal Information

 

Some of the information we are providing you has been redacted under
Section 40 of the FOIA as it is the personal information, this includes
SYFR staff names, partial email address, and mobile telephone numbers. 

 

Section 40(2) provides that personal data about third parties is exempt
information if one of the conditions set out in Section 40(3) is
satisfied.  Under the FOIA, disclosure of this information would breach
the fair processing principle contained in the General Data Protection
Regulations (GDPR), where it would be unfair to that person’s
confidentiality.  We have used the information Commissioners guidance
regarding third part data, see link: 
[1]https://ico.org.uk/media/1213/personal-i...

 

We believe this personal information would not routinely be available in
the public domain and this would be the expectation of these individuals. 
Section 40 is an absolute exemption and there is no requirement to carry
out a public interest test.

 

If you are dissatisfied with the handling of your request, you have the
right to ask for an internal review.  Internal review requests should be
submitted within two months of the date of receipt of the response to your
original letter and should be addressed to:

 

Andrew Frosdick, Monitoring Officer, South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue
Authority

By email: [2][email address]

or

The Monitoring Officer

South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Authority

Barnsley MBC

Westgate Plaza One

Westgate

Barnsley

S70 2DR

 

Please remember to quote the reference number above in any future
communications.

 

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have
the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a
decision.  The Information Commissioner can be contacted at: Information
Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9
5AF and at [3]www.ico.org.uk.

 

Kind regards
