    The EA & DE may have an agreement to supply contact data regarding EA moorings but I have no contract with the EA that gives my consent, that I'm aware of.

    As Gibeltarik notes, the EA and or DE using our data for HRP or LA moorings is a likely breach of GDPR. I've written to the EA's data protection officer seeking clarification.

    I wonder if you happened to be drying a damp towel draped over the boat name would they be allowed to remove it.

    Section 10 (3) of the Environment Agency (Inland Waterways) Order 2010 does allow the EA to supply information held for the purposes of the order (e.g. registration details) "to any person who can show to the satisfaction of the Agency or the Secretary of State reasonable cause for wanting the particulars made available to that person".

    This particular clause is all the more worrying when viewed in the context of the rest of Section 10 which prevents disclosure of information by the EA to anyone other than a specified responsible authority, which in relation to vessels is described only as a navigation authority, BW Board or the Secretary of State.

    Your first port of call, should be to the EA to ask them to provide you with the information given to them as a reasonable cause for wanting your particulars made available.

    RCC has moved our visitor signing in book from public view, previously located on the desk by the entrance, it is now behind the bar.
    You now have to ask for it to be produced.
    It you can actually read any of the hand scrawled details in the book, you should be working for the decryption section of MI5.
    Club members all recently had to sign some sort of disclaimer regards club holding data.

    Hello,

    I believe that GDPR trumps the IWO 2010 but if you look at the current paragraph 17 of your registration application form you will see that EA have amended the form in the light of GDPR.

    However - they should still not be sharing info with DE unless it is connection with an EA owned mooring when DE are acting as their agents. Is the enforcement contract still with DE I wonder?

    I am currently in the process of making a formal complaint to the EA's Data protection officer about them disclosing my name and address to District enforcement.

    Nobody else could have known the name and address used to register my boat, so it could on ly have been the EA, and DE informed me of this fact too, just like the original posters case.

    There is a clear breach of GDPR and it's not just me by the sound of things...
