Ensuring our members comply with Data Protection legislation

The Data Protection Act 1998 came into effect on 1 March 2000. The Act regulates the use of personal data and gives effect in UK law to the European Directive on Data Protection. The Act is concerned with “personal data”, which is information about living, identifiable individuals. This need not be particularly sensitive information and can be as little as a name and address.
