JaneH Posted March 15, 2021 Share Posted March 15, 2021 I also am not comfortable filling in the census and the amount of information they are requesting. I not happy either with the contracts awarded to the dozen or so companies to deploy the census and data gather....Leidos is one of the main ones and given their infrastructure and links, I'd rather not hand out info on a plate to these data thieves and I am also a consienscous objector to those companies that support the military arsenal, weaponry .and cyber agendas.....the other companies are i think...sensible code co, kainos software, iChild F&E, Networthnet ltd, etc etc with Serco manning the call centres ....so i got two very good reasons for declining all information requested.....serco and Leidos just for starters without delving into any links and who to that the others might have ....i read somewhere that on census it says required by 'Law' to be filled in.....so not an act or statute so not enforcable by statutary instruments....and the right to refuse under right to privacy laws holds as the data protection act 1998 takes precedent over census act 1920. The householder can fill in if they wish,(or not) but information re guests or other household members, unless they consent, would be a data protection act breach also. I will be staying at a work address on 21st march but have infirmed them they can fill in their own details, but I do not give my consent for my details to be included on their form and i consider it to be an infringement of my rights to privacy, seeing as the census uses the word 'law' which is common law, thereby it is my choice should i be included or not and as the legal framework has no force of law (law being the word used on census form) then it can only act on terms and conditions agreed by me. And i will be saying no to it. Luckily I live in a campervan so am considered an NFA anyway 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
