Adrian Beney's FAQs | FAQs

Note that all of these FAQs date from before the implementation of the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EU) Directive. They shold not be relied upon in 2015 or later. But they do provide a bit of interesting historic detail, and some of them are still up to date.

Section: Data Protection

I don't know anything about Data Protection. Where do I start?


Start at my Data Protection Pages, particularly my 10 Frequently Asked Questions.

Then talk to your Data Protection Officer in your own institution, or ring the Information Commission helpline.

Finally, remember this is not formal legal advice, just my understanding of the Data Protection Act 1998. You should consult the Information Commmission or a lawyer or other qualified person if you wish to be given formal guidance on this matter.
