Data Protection

'Data protection' often seems to be used as an excuse for not doing something, or not providing some information.

The Data Protection Act 1998 applies to a particular activity – processing personal data –rather than to particular people or organisations. This means that, if you collect or hold, or use, disclose, retain or destroy information about an identifiable living individual, you are likely to be processing personal data and you must comply with the provisions of the Act.

Businesses will hold personal data about their employees and customers. Whilst you may be exempt from the requirements to make notification of your activities to the Information Commissioner’s Office, you are still required to comply with the rest of the Act.

At BPK we understand that data protection and the implications of the Data Protection Act 1998 can be difficult to take in. Our specialist team can advise on:

  • notification to the Information Commissioner's Office
  • dealing with requests for access to personal data (from staff or customers)
  • privacy policies
  • website issues (cookies)
  • data processing notices
  • rules for marketing
  • using CCTV
