I was never sent that information .. (is this correct?

I think it's correct. Meanwhile, for important things, I suggest you not to use that sentence with non-native speakers. They could misunderstand the meaning. It would be clearer to say:

-I've never received that information. (present perfect, active voice) Or

-I never received that information. (past simple, active voice)

It is correct, but native speakers don't use this passive form very much.

It is used when we don't want to be very confrontational.
