Looking to sell my window cleaning round? How do you much is it worth?

Just thought, since the tightening of the data protection laws, is there any problems that could arise from passing on contact information without their express permission?

Would you introduce the buyer to the customers only after the round is sold? 

This would make sense so that any potential buyer doesn't pull a fast one and canvas the customers to avoid buying the round. 

Yes after they have paid up

Data protection laws don't effect the transfer or sale of business goodwill because the data held is only for the purpose of the business itself, which is essentially address and contact numbers that the customer has already given consent to give in the scope of supplied services.

If however you had information surplus to the requirements of the business (As you get to know customers you learn more about their jobs, family members, financial information etc), and this information is held on a database/sold on then you could be in a spot of bother.

I received a questionnaire that had to fill in from the ICO, long and short of it as long the data you hold is for the advantage if your own business, and for the exclusive use of your business, then your ok. This includes selling the business..

The whole thing is a bit of a legal nightmare I think , but doubt a window cleaner should face any issues , I think all this is more than likely to affect big companies with losses of customers data like we have seen in the news over the last few years
