Data Protection Statement
Amongst the many topics that get raised when discussing the Internet, there
is considerable debate about privacy and protection of information, especially
as data can potentially be transferred instantly across the globe. This page
is intended to pre-empt some questions and reassure visitors about this site
by listing the eight basic principles of data protection as proposed by the
Data Protection Registrar (DPR) and outlines the approach adopted by
Oldbury-on-Severn.com. There are many laws in place that provide data
protection in the United Kingdom and they are available for public viewing in
great detail from www.dpr.gov.uk. This
is a rapidly developing area of both the Internet and UK law and changes are
due to be implemented with new laws coming into force in the next few months.
In short the principles of the 1984 Data Protection Act state that personal
data must be:-
- Obtained and processed fairly and lawfully.
- Held only for lawful purposes, which are described in the registration.
- Used or disclosed only for those or compatible purposes.
- Adequate, relevant and not excessive.
- Accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date.
- Held no longer than necessary.
- Able to allow individuals to access information about them and, where appropriate, to correct it.
- Surrounded by proper security.
As a matter of principal the information provided will not be divulged or
passed on to any third party for any form of reward. If you have any questions
