Who owns giffgaff?

I'm in the process of writing a complaint to OFCOM and Information Commissioner's Office about giffgaff.  I'd be grateful if someone would let me know about the relationship between O2 and giffgaff.

Is giffgaff solely or partly owned by O2?

What has it to do with the Information Commissioner?

 

giffgaff haven't published your personal details, and sent you some details confidentially. It's you who has chosen to disclose them in public.

By the way, I don't appreciate you lying elsewhere about something I said on here.

And I don't appreciate being conned and lied to by giffgaff, so I guess we're both unhappy.

 

Not that I have lied about something you said.  If I had you would have posted evidence, which you haven't.

That's not really what happened.  The middle sentence in the original
message differed from the middle sentence in the quote.  I simply
asked for clarification, which doesn't seem unreasonable to me.

 

That is nonsense, as you made the quote, and it was identical to what I said first.

Eh?

 

Your original message:

 

I really think the time for making up rhetorically argument is over

 

The information or service provider hosted on 2ergo believes you subscribed, rightly or wrongly

 

A staff member has publicly offered to help you as much as possible with your case to the provider for a refund.

 

That would tend to imply that if you didn't subscribe, and that giffgaff can help you show that you didn't subscribe, they would be willing to do so.

 

So basically, you are simultaneously demanding help and rebutting it.

 

As is customary, I trimmed it when I quoted it in the my reply:

The middle sentences certainly look different to me.

Re: Who owns giffgaff?

Although giffgaff was originally funded by O2 it is now its own entity.

 

To prevent this thread running the same course as the last one, I will lock this one as well.

 

I hope you understand.

 

Kind regards,

 

Vincent
