More information about people is held by more organisation than ever before.  Some of these organisations are public, some are private companies.

 

My idea is that if you find, and you should already have full access to information held about you, that the information they hold is false you should have the right to correct it.

Why is this idea important?

These days inportant decisons that affect people are taken by people you never meet based on infomration assembled from numerous sources.  Not all of these sources are reliable.

Forty years ago a mortgage application was determined by a bank manager who knew you. These days it depends on a credit rating produced by companies with no vested interest in the truth.  False information held on you can ruin you.  You should have the right to correct it.
