Because of the “royaldutchshellplc.com” domain name, we regularly receive job applications, business proposals, pension enquiries, and sometimes even terrorist threats meant for Shell. We deal with all such matters as agreed with Mr Brandjes, sometimes corresponding with third parties on behalf of Shell, occasionally passing on correspondence to him. We have been offered oil wells and coalmines by third parties wrongly believing that we are Shell.

Dear Mr Thomson
Data Protection Act 1998 Subject Access Request (SAR)
Thank you for your letter dated 19 June 2013.
Please find enclosed completed application forms together with cheques based on a fee of £10 per applicant, if that is appropriate.
The application is made on an annual basis in joint names; the formula sensibly requested by your former colleague Mr Richard Wiseman and agreed to by us.
The categories of “Particular Personal Data” you have brought to our attention in the standard form supplied are not appropriate to our application. You do not have any category that is relevant to our relationship with Shell, which is unique.
