Data Protection

Companies that gather personal data have to, by law, notify the Information Commissioner that they are doing so. At CVQO we are totally committed to protecting your personal information and will look after the information you entrust to us keeping it safe and secure. CVQO complies with this requirement, and its Data Protection Registration No. is Z9730157.

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.
