"Ever wondered why a payment default remains on your Veda Advantage Information Services Ltd file for 5 years? So do I" asks Anthony John Brownlee.
"So I looked up the Privacy Act 1988 (Comm) Section 18F (2) which states the MAXIMUM permissible period a default may remain upon your file is as in Section 18F (2) (a) (b) (c) (d) (e) is 5 years!"
"So if the MAXIMUM permissible period a default may remain upon a file is 5 years, who decides how long the default entry remains and why is it clearly the policy and practice of Veda Advantage Information Services to maintain a listing for the MAXIMUM permissible period of 5 years in all cases?" asks Anthony John Brownlee
" If there is no valid point in retaining an entry for the MAXIMUM permissible period of 5 years rather than sa,y 4 years, is the listing for an additional year put there impose a “penalty” upon the file holder?" asks Anthony John Brownlee. "So I ask, who is it deciding to penalise the file holder?"
