Data Protection Act The Data Protection Act controls how your personal information is used by organizations, businesses or the government. Some data collected by the government is not covered by the Data Protection Act. This includes some data used by the police and the armed formed. The Data Protection Act only applies to personal data concerning the data subject. It cannot be used to obtain information, for example about a friend or work colleague. There is stronger legal protection for more sensitive information, such as:
Ethnic background
Political opinions
Religious beliefs
Sexual health
Criminal records What does 'Not transferred to other countries without adequate protection mean'?
Data should not be transferred to other countries, unless they have similar levels of data protection to the UK. All countries in the European Union (EU) have this level of protection so data can be lawfully transferred within the EU. Everyone who is responsible for using data has to follow strict rules called ‘data protection principles’. They must make sure the information is:
Used fairly and lawfully
Used for limited, specifically stated purposes
Used in a way that is adequate, relevant and not excessive
Kept for no longer than is absolutely necessary
Handled according to people’s data protection rights
Kept safe and secure
Not transferred outside the UK without adequate protection. This is Hugo!
Avoid him!
