Data Protection

The Data Protection Act provides a framework to ensure that personal information is handled properly.  It works in two main ways:

  • It states that anyone who processes personal information must comply with eight principles of good practice
  • It also provides individuals with important rights, including the right to find out what personal information about them is being held and the right to have their personal information kept secure

The Data Protection Act doesn't guarantee personal privacy at all costs.  It aims to strike a balance between individual's rights and the interests of those with legitimate reasons for using personal information.

Should an individual or organisation feel they're being denied acces to personal information they're entitled to see, or feel their information has not been handled appropriately, please contact the Information Manager at:  information.manager@irfs.org.uk
