More about the Data Protection Act 1998

The Data Protection Act came into effect 1998. It is designed to protect individuals from having inappropriate data about them being held by organisations and prevent the misuse of any held data. The penalties for mishandling, illegally sharing and abusing data relating to an individual are substantial. Companies are legally required to respond to individuals’ requests in a limited time. This means that all employees dealing with personal data must understand their legal obligations and responsibilities towards that data and the individuals it relates to.
