Loss of sensitive personal information.
The information was erroneously included with documentation sent to an unrelated third party.
Undertaking issued to ensure that documentation containing personal data is not printed when there is no need to do so.
Reason for action
The information was mistakenly collected from a shared printer by an employee who failed to check that the documentation was only for their case. A lack of quality control prevented this error from being discovered until it was too late.
