Milne and Baxter have demanded that the course release any data it holds on them, and protested about the companys failure to register, despite buying the Menie estate 10 years ago and opening the 18 -hole golf course in 2012.
Trumps foes and neighbours claim security personnel or directors are systematically challenged them on the course, seeming close to where they are walking or monitoring them visiting neighbours next to the resort by driving close to its boundary.
Baxter was arrested with a colleague for breach of the peace next to Trumps resort after personnel accused them of filming without permission while they were making a documentary on the tycoons quest to build the resort. Their therapy by the police, including being hurled against a automobile, was featured in the film.
A rambler called Rohan Betys, a retired social worker active in the Tripping Up Trump campaign group, was charged under the Civic Government( Scotland) Act for allegedly urinating in the dunes while she was out strolling on the course with a fellow campaigner, Sue Edwards, in April.
Betys was told by police that she had been filmed by Trump personnel using their mobile phones ducking down behind a dune. As she and Edwards strolled off the course, a photographer believed to work for a local paper jumped out of a automobile and photographed them.
Betys told prosecutors advised her in a statutory warning letter that the unproven charges would be put one across record. She has refused to admit the charges and challenged the decision to issue a warning letter. I find it very uncomfortable, she said last week. We always thought we were being watched. When they were constructing the course, every time we set foot on it[ there were] security guards there instantly.
Milne said the resorts failure to register under the DPA was symptomatic of the[ resorts] entire approach to UK legislation. It had repeatedly built on the course without get scheming permission, only applying after builds, walls or two flagpoles were in place.
An ICO investigation is required because of the track record of the organisation, because of the way it has harassed and attempted to intimidate both those who live on or near the estate and the individuals who stroll on to it, Milne told. The ICO needs to investigate because it has done so elsewhere, when similar things have happened. It should be one statute for all.
Baxter, who was not prosecuted for allegedly threatening Trump staff during his filming a charge he disputed said he had made a subject access petition under the Data Protection Act asking for all the information the company holds on him.
I have on a number of occasions filmed around and near the Trump links property and am concerned that my image may have been captured on numerous occasions and I am concerned also how these images are being stored and used, he told.
