What is personal data?

The Data Protection Act defines personal data as data which relate to a living individual who can be identified either from those data, or from those data and other information which is in the possession of, or is likely to come into the possession of, the data controller. Personal data includes any expression of opinion about the individual and any indication of the intentions of the data controller or any other person in respect of the individual.

  • Deal with data protection enquiries effectively and promptly.
  • Review data protection procedures and guidelines within the organisation on a regular basis.
