Hi Ann,

Yes, Section 77 of the Data Protection Act 2018 says, in effect, that personal data should not be transferred to a third party unless this is 'strictly necessary' for one of the defined purposes. Although Section 76(4) speaks about a transfer being "necessary for the purpose of, or in connection with, any legal proceedings (including prospective legal proceedings) relating to any of the law enforcement purposes", the law enforcement purposes are narrowly defined as:
For the purposes of this Part, “the law enforcement purposes” are the purposes of the prevention, investigation, detection or prosecution of criminal offences or the execution of criminal penalties, including the safeguarding against and the prevention of threats to public security.
Section 33
and so you can see it doesn't apply to civil cases.
Advice or comment provided here is not and does not purport to be legal advice as defined by s.12 of Legal Services Act 2007
