Data protection is an increasingly important area of the law. It shot to prominence in November 2007 with the loss of two CDs containing the UK's entire Child Benefit records. However, data protection impacts on an enormous range of businesses and organisations. Areas affected include:
- Employment and HR/payroll records
- Customer/contact and marketing databases
- Electoral registers
- Almost any system of capturing and recording personal information.
Significant penalties apply for failure to comply with the legislation.
We can advise on every aspect of data protection compliance, ranging from what is permissible monitoring of employees, drafting corporate data protection compliance policies, as well as privacy issues and privacy policies.
