Data Protection

The purpose of the Data Protection Act 1998 is to protect the rights of individuals with respect to the processing of their personal data, and to ensure that organisations which process personal data do so in a fair and proper way. Processing includes the collection, storage, retrieval, use, or disclosure of personal data.

The Information Commissioner is responsible for overseeing the Data Protection Act and for protecting your personal information. You can contact the Information Commissioner by telephone on 01625 545 745 or on the web at
