I guess Id personally dont really call it that, though

Data collection can include talking to people. Somebody introducing themselves to you is a form of data collection. In this case, he/the company collected her name (personal data) for the sake of providing taxi service, and he retained it and used it for personal purposes outside of the use to which she consented. That's no bueno.

As many people have said, if he'd reached out to her shortly after the ride, it might have been okay. That would still have been a matter of using customer data from work for personal reasons, but at least that would have fallen into the realm of colloquial interaction, which is generally more acceptable (he would not, for example, be expected to not use her name in chatting with her during the ride). Three months later, though, it's not so colloquial. He had no reason to still have that information, regardless of how he had it.

Literally the only reason he had her contact info or name is because she was a client. He obtained her contact info through his job. I don't understand that disconnect here.

Do we know that he collected the data, though?
Completely irrelevant - I don't get to say 'LOL THE PHARMACY COLLECTS THE DATA, NOT MEEEE'.

If she honestly just stood out and he let it go after a rejection then he really did nothing wrong.
Want to answer me? Have you ever had a real job?

Which is to say that it's logically analogous to a really silly thing to say.

Yeah because setting things to private on a social media platform is the same thing as staving to death. Use the features these websites give you if you feel your being harassed or whatever. If you don't and then act all upset that someone messages you randomly then that's on you. This is just common sense really.

It's not normal to ask out clients/customers.

She was a customer and yeah it's quite common for customers to ask out workers or visa versa.

Remembering is a form of saving/collecting.

Remembering someones name and then contacting them isn't a big deal. It doesn't matter how you met the person. Also again:

Hey! So since we had a lovely little chat in my taxi following your London Theatre trip, your name has pretty much stuck in my head, the message she shared read. Hope you dont mind me messaging, Im wondering if you might like to go for a beverage sometime In fact, there is really cool stuff going on in Southampton this weekend.

Seems like she told him her name and they had a nice chat. Again that's normal.

Technically, the pharmacy does collect the data. Not you. But if you look at data that is irrelevant for you to do the job, thats bad. But if you do need to look at it to give someone their medicine, thats fine But its true that you didnt collect the data The pharmacy did So, I dont know why you act like thats wrong

They work by using a Uber where you give a name using the app or just tell the driver where you want to go if using a black cab. Having a conversation isn't required and telling them your real name isn't too. Might be different in other countries but this is a England story.

You ARE the business lmao. There's no distinction when you're an employee. If you are obtaining the info through your job as an agent of that company you are getting the info through your company.

No. You work for the business That doesnt mean you are the business Youre an employee Theres definitely a distinction And I never said he didnt get the information from the company I was saying he didnt necessary save it, or go through records again, to get it He could have, or he could have. Just remembered it Fa talking about the pharmacy was saying that he didnt get the information, but that the pharmacy collected the data Which is true... Just because the pharmacy collected the data doesnt mean you will have the data yourself Or even know if it In the case of the taxi company, the taxi company collected the data, but gave it to the driver

I can just imagine being a boozer and chatting to the bar staff. We have a good chat. Several months later having not gone into the bar during that time that member of staff contacts me on Facebook (or any other social media) having recalled my name and enjoyed our chat. I then get hot and bothered about it for reasons and claim they should be disciplined and all that just for having the nerve to contact me. In reality I wouldn't care. I'd just so no and carry on with my life or say yes and who knows? Not all this nothing drama.

Jen loves blocking people who don't agree with her 'all men are evil' notion. She's actually done you a favour.
