Don't hold me to this exactly, but my understanding is that an AE who is responsible for the VTS also is now according to the Testing Guide has their details passed to other bodies like Inland Revenue etc under the freedom of information act.

Not sure where you got that info Daveg -

VOSA - like other bodies - has a duty of care under the act NOT to disclose information unless a Data Request has been signed under the act - there are limited circumstances where this can be used.

In theory the Inland Revenue & other bodies could submit a Data Request to VOSA for information on an AE - but information is not disclosed as a matter of course.

Any paperwork submitted during the application - ie bank references etc are 'data cleansed' (shredded) after completion.
