    Looks like Lyin' Donald is playing fast and loose with his customers' privacy.

    Donald Trump’s golf resort in Aberdeenshire has admitted it failed to comply with strict data protection laws after not registering with the UK’s privacy watchdog, the Guardian can reveal.

    The Information Commissioner’s Office contacted staff at the £30m resort near Aberdeen, Scotland, after it confirmed it was not registered under the Data Protection Act despite operating an extensive CCTV system and handling data on thousands of golfers and guests, its staff and suppliers.

    The resort insisted the failure was a “clerical error”, but the ICO is now being urged to launch a full investigation by residents, opposition politicians at Holyrood, and the film-maker Anthony Baxter, who directed You’ve Been Trumped. They claim Trump’s history of conflicts with his opponents raises misgivings about the resort’s failure to comply with the legal requirement to register.
