Companies that gather personal data have to, by law, notify the Information Commissioner that they are doing so. At Information Security Vendors Association (“ISVA”) we are totally committed to protecting your personal information and will look after the information you entrust to us keeping it safe and secure. ISVA comply with this requirement, and its Data Protection Registration No. is TBA. Principles of Data Protection Anyone processing personal data must comply with the eight enforceable principles of good practice. The Data Protection Act 1998 states that data must be:
fairly and lawfully processed;
processed for limited purposes;
adequate, relevant and not excessive;
accurate;
not kept longer than necessary;
processed in accordance with the data subject's rights;
secure;
not transferred to countries without adequate protection.
Personal data covers both facts and opinions about the individual. It also includes information regarding the intentions of the data controller towards the individual, although in some limited circumstances exemptions will apply. With processing, the definition is far wider than before. For example, it incorporates the concepts of 'obtaining', holding' and 'disclosing'. The full explanation of the principles can be found at the Data Protection website
