Last night, the SKWAWKBOX revealed an email from Labour quitter Joan Ryan to local Labour members that links her or her agents to the reported unlawful use of ‘Organiser’ – the Labour system giving access to members’ personal data. The Labour Party is pursuing the matter.
Now a Labour organiser has sent the SKWAWKBOX a copy of the form that all users of the system have to sign before being allowed to access it. It informs the signer that unauthorised access or use of the data for unauthorised purposes is a criminal offence:
Sending Ms Ryan’s email to members, which explicitly states that it was sent after she had resigned, is certainly ‘an unauthorised purpose’. ‘Organise’ is a new system, used only since last year, and all users were required to sign the form.
Joan Ryan was contacted for comment about the incident.
