Don’t flout data protection rules, ICO warns law firmsDon’t flout data protection rules, ICO warns law firms
Personal injury firms have been warned they could face fines if they have obtained work through nuisance calls and spam texts.The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has reported that a record number of complaints were made linked to accident claims – with 1,645 received during the last three months of 2013.The ICO believes many solicitors may be unaware that they could be breaching the Data Protection Act by using leads generated through unlawful methods.However, it says ignorance will not prevent enforcement action that could lead to a financial penalty. Enforcement group manager Andy Curry said: ‘The message is quite clear to law firms – do your due diligence and check the provenance of the data to make sure it was obtained lawfully.‘We are looking to push our guidance to the legal sector and the same rules apply to law firms as to anyone else.’Under current rules, firms can carry out electronic marketing only if the person being targeted has given their permission. The exception is a ‘soft opt-in’, where the person has not taken an opportunity to refuse marketing or where details were obtained in the course of a sale.Consumer watchdog Which? has lobbied for bigger fines for claims companies sending out spam texts and making nuisance calls.Which? research found more than eight in 10 people received an unsolicited call in one month; of these, one in 10 people received 50 unwanted calls or more. Six in 10 people received calls about payment protection insurance and half calls from accident claim companies.
Alabama safety Collins ready to return home to face LSUAlabama safety Collins ready to return home to face LSU
TUSCALOOSA – Landon Collins plans to have much fun at LSU’s expense Saturday night.The Alabama junior safety can’t wait to return to his home state to play in Death Valley and take it to the school that wanted him so badly coming out of Dutchtown High.“Personally, it means a lot,” said a grinning Collins. “I just want to show them that I picked the right team. Show we’re the dominant force in the SEC.”Collins isn’t treading lightly into this situation. He’s letting everyone know he hasn’t forgotten how LSU fans reacted to him choosing the Crimson Tide (7-1, 4-1 SEC) over the Tigers (7-2, 3-2).So Collins is looking to put on show for all the haters on a primetime stage.“Just going back into LSU country and playing in that stadium and the hearing all that hootin’ and hollerin’ from the fans, and then the team,” Collins said. “This is going to be my best game.”Landon Collins has to be the most hated person in Louisiana — WE WANT BAMA! (@KingMakaveli337) November 6, 2014For those who have forgotten, Collins’ mom, April Justin, wanted her son to attend LSU, too, but Collins said she’s no longer roots for the Tigers.“She just cheers me on,” Collins said.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w6NVgm_hntI&w=560&h=315%5DWhen Collins made his first trip to Death Valley wearing crimson, he played sparingly and had one assisted stop in Alabama’s epic 21-17 win. Last season, he had four tackles as a starter for injured Vinnie Sunseri and recovered J.C. Copeland’s fumble at the 1-yard line the first quarter of a 38-17 Tide victory.Now Collins is returning to Baton Rouge hungry to remain unbeaten against LSU.“I don’t want to hear anything about what happens this year, what happened that year,” Collins said. “No. I beat ya’ll four, five years.”Nice try, Landon, but everyone believes he’ll enter the 2015 NFL draft. So this should be the last time Collins faces the Tigers.Les Miles made a point in his Monday press conference to identify Collins as a “Louisiana native” when everyone in the boot knows he is. Collins is from New Orleans.“Landon Collins, Louisiana native, is having a great year, making plays, and again, very, very talented guy and playing very, very well in the secondary,” Miles saidLes is laying it on a little thick there, but his players sure aren’t smothering praise all over Collins.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration Time 0:00Loaded: 0%0:00Progress: 0%0:00 Progress: 0%Stream TypeLIVERemaining Time -0:00 Playback Rate1ChaptersChaptersdescriptions off, selectedDescriptionssubtitles off, selectedSubtitlescaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedCaptionsAudio TrackFullscreenThis is a modal window.

As he recalls, the fans were “calmer” for day games.“At night time, it’s straight LSU,” Collins said. “There’s nothing else to do. What are you going to do at 10 o’clock at night, you know? The fans just change. It’s different.”Collins said he knows most of LSU’s skilled players on offense and defense. One of those guys, third-year sophomore Travin Dural of Breaux Bridge, La., caught a 6-yard touchdown pass on Collins last year.So will there be some on-field chatter Saturday night?“I doubt it,” Collins said. “I don’t think the wide receivers want to chat with me.”Collins is second on the team in tackles with 54 and first in interceptions with two but he did give up the game-winning touchdown pass in Alabama’s lone loss this season at Ole Miss.“The bunch (formation) plays have really given Landon Collins problems in this game,” said CBS color commentator Gary Danielson after Jaylen Walton’s 10-yard touchdown catch over Collins that put the Rebels up 23-17 with two minutes, 54 seconds left in the game.Bo Wallace threw three touchdowns in the second half of that upset victory. The Tide have surrendered just three receiving touchdowns total in its last three games since that loss. Not sure how much Anthony Jennings will test the Alabama secondary since he’s only thrown for 372 yards in his last three games.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hT7_DnFtJZc&w=560&h=315%5DThe only true trepidation Collins expressed Monday was on having to possibly tackle his youth league teammate – LSU freshman sensation Leonard Fournette – for the first time ever.Collins said the two played together in New Orleans. At some point Saturday, Collins will probably get a chance to take down Fournette in the open field.Good luck with that.“He’s a big back and he runs strong,” Collins said. “He runs hard. He can run with a lot of confidence and he’s been getting better each week.”Collins let it be known that back in the day, he was not only a better running back than Fournette, but that Fournette wanted his No. 5 number. Collins was the first player in Louisiana to earn Class 5A all-state honors on offense and defense as he was a first-team running back and safety.“The better running back at the time, I would say myself,” Collins said. “He still had a lot of growing up to do and he was younger than me so definitely me.”@SECNetwork#SECvs Landon Collins %26 Leonard Fournette, can’t beat childhood friends going against each other in a heated rivalry #BAMAvsLSU— Care (@9Sweet_Caroline) November 6, 2014Oh yeah, Collins is feeling good right now.If Alabama beats LSU a fourth straight time Saturday, Collins will return to Louisiana with that big smile and bragging rights much to the dismay of those who wanted him to chose the Tigers over the Tide.“All of us got bashed for coming to Alabama, especially from the arch rivals,” said Collins about the Louisiana natives playing for Tide who includes starting freshman left tackle Cam Robinson of Monroe. “We’re just ready to show them why we’re on this team.”
‘Cosmopolitan’ pulls ‘Bachelor’ cover after Victoria F. “White Lives Matter” photo surfaces‘Cosmopolitan’ pulls ‘Bachelor’ cover after Victoria F. “White Lives Matter” photo surfaces
ABC/Maarten de Boer(NEW YORK) — The Bachelor drama continues off-screen.On Monday night’s episode, Peter Weber and the 12 remaining contestants had a steamy photoshoot for Cosmopolitan in Costa Rica. Victoria Fuller won the honor of gracing the mag’s next digital cover with Peter, but now Cosmo has decided to pull the cover after photos surfaced of Victoria modeling a “White Lives Matter” t-shirt.In a letter posted to Cosmopolitan.com, editor-in-chief Jessica Pels explains, “Unequivocally, the White Lives Matter movement does not reflect the values of the Cosmo brand. We stand in solidarity with Black Lives Matter, and any cause that fights to end injustices for people of color.”The photos of Victoria in question were reportedly used in a campaign for Marlin Lives Matter, an organization focused on preventing the overfishing of white and blue marlin. The organization used the phrases “white lives matter” and “blue lives matter” in its messaging.“In my view, the nature of the organization is neither here nor there — both phrases and the belief systems they represent are rooted in racism and therefore problematic,” Pels wrote.The photos from The Bachelor episode were already printed in Cosmo’s March issue, but the mag has chosen not to publish the digital cover on their website or social feeds.Victoria has not yet addressed the controversy.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
