Gravito Retreat Center Shobha Brennan Miguel Humbletcondemned by data commissioner (ico) for wilful defiance of data protection rules

The Data Commissioner (ICO) in London condemned Miguel Humblet and Shobha Brennan for their data protection practices. The matter came to light when in response to witnesses being called to give evidence in Court, private data was circulated around to discourage witnesses from giving evidence, under threats of having their bank accounts closed.

Miguel Humblet and Shobha Brennan were heavily involved with those found engaging in the behaviour and tried to portray a Data Subject was a mentally deranged and sick liar.

The Data Subject was told to get a change of pants ready, or expect violence.

It was done with the moral support of Miguel and Shobha.

The Data Commissioner made findings that Gravito Retreat Centre had not complied with their obligations under GDPR.

They were ordered to become compliant and remained defiant. Gravito Retreat Centre took the line that GDPR and Data Protection does not apply to them, a matter that raised concerns with the Data Commissioner investigating wilful defiance of GDPR.

Data was indeed circulated around, in breach of privacy, designed to try and intimidate witnesses to Court cases to be quiet, or else.

In response to demands to access the data under provisions of the GDPR, friends of Gravito were nasty, with their blessing, and told a witness to Court to get a change of ;pants ready, implying violence might be used to stifle the complaints.

Gravito Retreat Centre face Enforcement Actions and Court Orders.

      Thank you for your email to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) in which you have confirmed the best email address to use for you.

      The ICO’s role

      Part of our role is to consider complaints from individuals who believe there has been an infringement of their data protection rights. Our role is to consider whether there is an opportunity to improve the information rights practices of organisations. We may not investigate or adjudicate on every individual complaint.

      We will put most of our effort into dealing with matters we think give us the best opportunity to make a significant difference to an organisation’s information rights practices.

      It is up to us to decide whether or not we should take further action. Even where we decide that further action is not required at the moment, perhaps because the organisation has made a mistake but is working to put things right, we will keep concerns on file. This will help us over time to build a picture of an organisation’s information rights practices.

      Our decision will not affect your ability to enforce your rights through the courts.

      Our view

      I have considered the information available in relation to this complaint and I am of the view that Gravito Retreat Center has not complied with their data protection obligations.

      This is because they have not responded to your subject access request (SAR)

      Further Action Required

      We have therefore written to Gravito Retreat Center about their information rights practices.

      We have asked Gravito Retreat Center to ensure that there is a clear process made available for personal information requests to ensure prompt responses to all enquires.

      We have advised Gravito Retreat Center that you are entitled to all your personal information from which you can be identified however you are not entitled to receive any third party data.

      We have also asked them to ensure that they provide you with an appropriate response to your request within the next 21 days.

      We are only able to help with your data protection complaint, we cannot get involved in any disputes between you and Gravito Retreat Center.

      We keep a record of all the complaints raised with us about the way organisations process personal information. The information we gather from complaints may form the basis for action we may take in the future to ensure organisations meet their information rights obligations.

      Thank you for bringing this matter to our attention.

      Yours sincerely

      As supplemental information Gravito was given six attempts to comply with a Subject Access Request, in each case no interest was shown in compliance. They could have eliminated themselves from suspicion in data abuse, inciting witness harassment, sharing bank details around and other privacy concerns.

      They did not because they were involved. In two separate cases the Data Commissioner forced compliance implicating Gravito in dishonesty and trying to conceal data to make out Court Witnesses are liars.

      Gravito also face fines for non compliance, in one instance a company was fined 15, 000 Pounds by the Commissioner.
