    Yes 2222, theres only so many categories a data breach falls into. If I recall it was the disclosure from one third party to another. I'm not sure how that could equate into several pages unless Thomas is suggesting he lists every email or specific disclosure that was made in which case that isn't feasible nor is it practical.

    Simply saying that disclosure of personal data via email and other methods in relation to XYZ personal data would be a sufficient way of putting it.

        Someone mentioned that I have 6 years to take action against them. Is this not right?

          I just had a lightbulb above head moment...

          would stating the fact that I was a member (relating to one society) or in the process of joining a society (in the case of the other) be a "factual background"?

                R0b Also, should I mention about my complaints that I have made to one society which I detailed above?

                  Yes but you dont need a story book on it. I have to be honest I'm still really surprised that you've not sent it off yet, I think your getting too bogged down on trying to include absolutely everything.

                  It should be limited to key facts only, only you can decide what you think is or isn't key facts.

                  If you miss something out, not the end of the world, you can respond by reply or in your witness statement.

                    Thomas, you really need to edit your letter down to something manageable. Choose say half a dozen examples of breaches, rather than trying to list all of them. It won't make any difference to the damages, and listing every trivial point detracts from the main ones.

                    Bear in mind that county court judges may not have the same intense interest in your case that you have, so don't try their patience. Make it easy for them!

                          I've not really been involved in your thread so a just a couple quick points from the letter ( which is looking a lot better, more concise )

                          So...
                          "This letter before action is therefore served on you in accordance with the Pre-Action Protocol for Pre-Action."
                          change to " in accordance with the Pre-Action Protocols"


                          In the list of breaches switch the bottom two around, so they run in date order.

                          Also the June one wants rewording a little
                          On or about 7th June 2018, I received a package from your solicitor, Mr. Xxxxxx
                          Xxxxx of XXXxx which contained hard copies of emails and other data relating to my
                          subject access request. I note that some of the requested documents were missing; including
                          emails that I received from Breckland Astronomical Society, copy of a banning order, and
                          emails between yourselves and the Norwich Evening News "

                          And these bits aren't a data breach / GDPR SAR response breach - they're things you are asking for from them so want moving to the resolution section
                          an explanation as to why my complaint raised in relation to Xxxxx Xxxxxxxxxx calling me a “f**king retard”
                          was ignored, and the reason I was banned for having Asperger’s Syndrome.

                            Amethyst, just a question, did you read this entire thread?

                            Thank you for your feedback. I need you to understand and appreciate that I am new to legal action under the DPA, so therefore am struggling to compile a letter like this. Had fantastic help in this forum, but some of it I don't understand fully, although I try, like pt2537's advice.

                              Asperger's, apparently Google and other large tech companies seek out people with that attribute.

                                I've kept an eye out It's only a couple minor 'flow' changes I've suggested... I'm sure R0b will have more amendments to make later, those parts just jumped out at me xx
