PGS ASA has transferred SDK Personal Data Outside EEA and Sponsored Litigation using SDK Processed / Translated Personal Data in Thailand without Consent
PGS ASA CEO & President, Rune Olav Pedersen, PGS ASA CFO & EVP, Gottfred Langseth, and PGS ASA Chief Accountant, Christin Steen-Nilsen serve as Directors for PGS ASA UK Subsidiary, PGS Exploration (UK) Limited, 4 The Heights, Brooklands, Weybridge, Surrey, England KT13 0NY. The Directors sponsored litigation in Thailand against a former contracted foreign worker whistleblower.
SDK is a USA citizen and no longer lives in Thailand. PGS ASA has been aware that I reside outside Thailand and returned to the USA since July 2019, as confirmed in e-mail records from PGS UK Head of Legal, John Francas. Further, the referenced 11 November 2018 agreement has been disputed. However, the 11 November 2018 agreement does not declare a physical address for delivering legal notices. The document states an e-mail address. International personal data transfer is also regulated. SDK is not at liberty to stay in Thailand at the discretion of PGS Exploration (UK) Limited arbitrary and capricious”legal” decision making. Apparently, abiding by English law is too restrictive for PGS Exploration (UK) Limited.
Nonetheless, PGS ASA have continued to deliver firm copy “legal documents” through a hired Thai law firm, Duensing – Kippen. PGS ASA has delivered these threatening (extortion / blackmail) “legal notices” to SDK relatives. PGS ASA is intentionally terrorizing old people and children! PGS ASA has never responsibly sent their complaints to SDK directly by e-mail in English. Common sense dictates this would be the most effective approach if PGS ASA was truly concerned about SDK online legally protected public disclosures. The laws of England govern the terms and conditions of the 05 December 2013 termination settlement contract, which is referenced within PGS ASA 16 July 2018 SAR response to the data subject, SDK. This is the agreement SDK choses to abide by for the 15 April 2020 submitted SAR. The 5 December 2013 is also regarded as a fraudulent piece of shit, but according to PGS ASA 16 July 2018SAR response, this contract remains valid.
Records show that PGS ASA / PGS Exploration (UK) Limited was processing / transferring SDK personal data to Thailand (outside the EEA) while processing an SDK 18 Jun 2018 submitted subject access request (SAR). PGS ASA / PGS Exploration (UK) Limited never disclosed nor received consent for this personal data transfer outside the EEA. Further, this sensitive personal data transfer included a photocopy of SDKs USA passport details that was explicitly provided to PGS ASA only to confirm the identity of the data subject for the SAR processing. PGS ASA knowingly withheld information about transferring subject data (SDK) outside the EEA when they had the legal responsibility to disclose (fraud). However, PGS ASA also broke USA Federal law. Photocopying a USA passport without consent is illegal under USA Federal law.
PGS ASA also provided knowing misrepresentations with respect to SDKs data request that explicitly highlighted the processing of SDK e-mails sent to the PGS ASA Compliance Hotline that were never responded to. These e-mails to PGS ASA Compliance provided whistleblowing. SDK asked why these e-mails were never responded to? Copies of these communications were provided to PGS ASA Data Protection Officer (Daphne Bjerke). The response to the 18 June 2018 SDK SAR did not acknowledge the 2016 SAR, but highlighted the 2014 SAR response. Most publications referenced in the Criminal Defamation claim(s) filed in Thailand are in regard SDK disputing the integrity of the contents received from PGS ASA from the 2014 SAR. SDK has contended / published claims with evidence that PGS ASA is uttering forged defamatory unverified / unsigned documents as SDK personal data.
PGS ASA continues to defraud and defame the data subject, SDK. The reason that SDK has submitted a subject access request to PGS ASA in June 2018 is because PGS Exploration (UK) Limited Secretary Carl Richards had resigned 25 May 2018. Also, the General Data Protection Requirement (GDPR) had just replaced the UK Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA). Before resigning, Secretary Carl Richards had written threats about filing a criminal defamation suit against SDK as a private person. This would mean that Carl Richards was processing SDK personal data, or at least acknowledging SDK online published protected disclosures – whistleblowing. John Francas replaced Carl Richards and Daphne Bjerke was appointed PGS ASA Data Protection Agency. Daphne Bjerke and John Francas engaged in fraud to protect corrupt PGS ASA Board of Directors and Executives. From the 2014 SAR, SDK discovered that PGS ASA was uttering forged defamatory documents to support an illegally proffered settlement contract. PGS ASA refuses to comment on the unsigned and unverified forgeries which bribed lawyers processed to illegally terminate a foreign worker whistleblower.
SDK submitted a subject access request (SAR) 11 June 2018. PGS Exploration (UK) Limited Secretary, Carl Richards had began blackmailing SDK. Carl Richards was explicit that he was operating independent of his duties as an agent of PGS ASA (Misrepresentation – Fraud). Carl Richards resigned from PGS ASA 25 May 2018. John Francas became the In-house solicitor. SDK requested any personal data that had been processed since his SDK 2014 SAR where he discovered that PGS ASA was uttering forged documents that were used to support a fraudulent termination settlement contract. PGS ASA illegally terminated a foreign worker whistleblower through using forged documents. I sent several complaints to the PGS ASA Compliance in 2016. These complaints were ignored. In 2018, SDK submitted another SAR when the new General Data Protection Requirement came into effect. PGS ASA lied and said that no SDK data was being processed, when it shows that PGS ASA had prepared their illegal blackmail legal claim on 10 July 2018. PGS ASA illegally transferred personal data outside the EEA without consent. PGS ASA also broke USA Federal law by copying and transferring a USA Passport without consent. SDK had provided personal identification data to PGS ASA to process the SAR.
