The Data Protection Act places safeguards on the personal information we and other organisations hold about you.
It applies to computers and certain types of paper filing systems and gives rules for the way we treat personal information about you.
We use a range of personal data to carry out our work and have a set of rules, procedures and policies to ensure we comply with the law.
Our web pages explain our policies, show our current notification (a description of purposes for processing personal data), outline the eight Data Protection principles from the Act and provide a form for you to use to make an official subject access request (for personal information about you).
