Dear Steven,

 

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request.  In order for us to log
your request I would be grateful if you could submit your full  name. 
This is following ICO guidelines, please see below.

 

Section 8 states that a request for information should state the name of
the applicant. This means the applicant’s real name. Therefore a request
made by an applicant using a pseudonym is not valid and the public
authority would not be obliged to deal with the request. Similarly the
Commissioner is not obliged to deal with a complaint made using a
pseudonym as technically he has no legal authority to consider such
complaints

 

NOTE: This is not an Is this a valid What would the ICO’s approach likely
exhaustive list. request? to be?

Example

 
The applicant only No Albeit that the Act only states that
uses one name e.g. “the” name of the applicant is
Adrian or initials required rather than ‘the full’ name
e.g. S.P.H. of the applicant, the Commissioner
would not consider it unreasonable to
ask for a full name to be provided.
This is also appropriate given that
it could lead to unnecessary
confusion/delay/possible data
protection breaches if applicants
cannot be distinguished from one
another.

 

Kindest regards,
