Using your personal information

The Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) is UK legislation to ensure that peoples’ personal information is not misused.   It defines a set of rules and guidelines we must follow when handling your personal information. 

The DPA refers to these rules and guidelines as data protection principles.

Two of the most important principles are:

  • We must tell you how we are using your information
  • We must give you access to the information we are holding (known as a Subject Access Request).
