Article 25 Personal Information
(1) Information is absolutely exempt information if it constitutes personal data of which the applicant is the data subject as defined in the Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2005.
(2) Information is absolutely exempt information if –
(a) it constitutes personal data of which the applicant is not the data subject as defined in the Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2005; and
(b) its supply to a member of the public would contravene any of the data protection principles, as defined in that Law.
Article 33 Commercial interests
Information is qualified exempt information if -
(a) it constitutes a trade secret; or
(b) its disclosure would, or would be likely to, prejudice the commercial interests of a person (including the scheduled public authority holding the information).
Article 33 is a Qualified Exemption and is therefore subject to a Public Interest Test.
Justification for the exemption
The information is of commercial value and its disclosure would, or would be likely to, prejudice the commercial interests of the third party and the scheduled public authority.
Therefore it is considered it would not be in the public interest to release this information at this time and this exemption should be maintained.
