Help CapGemini Honour GDPR

CapGemini UK plc infringed the accuracy principle of GDPR in 2019, resulting in the loss of paid work for me, that was scheduled to last until December 2020, and potentially longer. 

This fundraiser will raise funds in order to pay for a Barrister to take on CapGemini UK plc and help to ensure that firms know that they must follow the GDPR principles, and that there will be consequences if they don't. 

There is at the moment limited case law with respect to GDPR, other than mass data breaches. So this will be an important case, to help ensure that firms know that they must hold accurate data, as well as ensuring it is not breached. 

CapGemini UK plc's defence to date relies on ignoring what their own e-mails around the time of the inaccurate data being communicated, and indeed contradicting these facts in their version of events, along with the view of their own HR team from after the event. These e-mails were obtained via a Subject Access Request.

CapGemini also approved and issued a contract to be issued to myself, which was duly signed by the named parties on the contract, and which CapGemini has subsequently failed to honour. 

CapGemini UK plc has  infringed the accuracy principle of GDPR, and also thinks that it is appropriate to ignore what their own e-mails and HR say on the subject. 

Please donate, so that everyone can be protected by GDPR and large firms like CapGemini UK plc know that they can not ignore the rights of individuals.
