Data Protection - Contents
The Data Protection Act 1998 came fully into force on 1 March 2000. It sets out rules for processing personal information and is applicable to paper records as well as those that are held on computers.
The Act works in two ways. It gives the individual data subject certain rights, but stipulates too that those who record and use personal information, must be:
- open about how that information is used and
- must follow the eight data protection principles of good information handling.
For further guidance in respect of Data Protection please follow the links below or contact the University Data Protection Officer (ext.6950 ).
