Your Business

Does your company comply with the Data Protection Act and the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations?

Are you aware that if your company processes personal information and it does not benefit from a notification exemption, it is required to notify to the Office of the Information Commissioner? Failure to notify is a criminal offence.

Are you aware that those individuals about whom you hold personal information have the right to request copies of that information from you?

Are you also aware that you are required by law to provide that information to the individual concerned within the timescale of 40 days?

The above provides non-exhaustive examples of some of the issues which arise from the Data Protection Act. If your company has not addressed the issue of data protection or if the issue has been addressed but you have outstanding questions or require further guidance, Westbrook Data Protection Services can help.
