When a limited company is incorporated, it has a legal obligation under Companies Act legislation, to make all business details available for public inspection, including registration details, accounts and director information. We use this data to generate the records published on our websites. These records are publicly available from The Registrar of Companies, in certain cases The Registry Trust and from various other company data websites.
Limited company data is not subject to the Data Protection Act although we are registered under The Data Protection Act, no. Z2617738. There are no Data Protection legalities related to limited company data and no authorisations or permissions required with regards to it's publication.
While we understand some companies have reservations about being listed, we carry no information that is not available elsewhere in the public domain and therefore cannot remove or amend data on our website.
The only way to prevent disclosure of company and director information, is to remove the details at the source, Companies House. Once altered or removed from Companies House, any changes will filter through to our website and update automatically.
