Wasnt sure if i should put the heading as Internet or website.
The question is,
Is it against the Law to give out personal details on a website without that persons permission.
Any help or advive would be gratefull thanks.

I think it is at least ill advised if not totally illegal but as ASE71 says it may depend on the actual details. Personally I don't ever forward emails without removing the senders and any other email addresses. Too easy with that little bit of info to cause a nuisance.

There is no law to say you can't print someone's name and address anywhere , per say, unless you are bound by the data protection act 1998 to keep these details private.

But its how these details are used and the intent for which they are provided that can lead to the initial disclosure being illegal.

spill the beans...... smile

It's not. Telephone number/Address are things that can be found online anyway, they aren't privledged information.

There's a couple of exceptions, things like credit card numbers for example.

There is a huge difference between people looking for information stored on the internet or maliciously posting the information to the internet with the intent on causing the named person a problem, a HUGE difference.......

I would like to think that the majority of people just ignore phone niumber details! unless they were looking for them, specifically.
