Do resellers register under DPA in the UK I ask because I can't seem to find anything under it. I'm assuming so but can someone confirm that for me please, one of you UK experienced resellers, I am just going through the process of setting up my web hosting proposition and there doesn't seem to be any info or advice on this issue.
Most business do not need to register, simply conform with the guidelines, and make specific information available if it is requested (where it relates to themselves only), as they are simply maintaining and processing "Accounts and Records"
The data class is restricted to name, address, and credit card information
All other information requests can be declined
In 12 years we have only received a handful of requests, declined, about half, and only had one referal for declining information (which ICO agreed with)
If you offer credit (and are registered under the Consumer Credit Act) then you will need to register under the DPA
