Is it actually legal to give out someone elses name and address without their permission?
That's what I thought. I've just tried to order some flowers and they want the name as well as the address for me to put in the order.
As it happens, I don't know the lady's name, so can't give it anyway. Their booking system won't except my order unless I give her name!
I would feel very uncomfortable doing that
Ah. In that case, it's more like sending a gift, so I can see why they'd want the name and address. The florist wouldn't be likely to keep that information for longer than is necessary and it would be secure.
But in most cases, certainly in terms of companies, then no, giving out private details without the consent of the individual (s) concerned isn't legal.
I think its kinda expected to provide name and address to a companyif you are sending something as a gift....
if you dont want to though just put the name down as Fleur Recipient!
There could be more than one lady at the address (as far as they know), so yes, you'd need to give it. Sometimes the online booking/order forms have you tearing your hair out, not enough lines for the address being the worst offender in my case.
I don't know her name but I know she live alone. Surely they don't need to know that!
Is she local to you? Could get the flowers delivered to yourself and then take them around to her?
All sorted now. She'll get them tomorrow lunchtime
