Claudia Crab’s June Focus
Personal Data Processing
“When it comes to data protection, small businesses tend to be less well prepared. They have less to invest in getting it right. They don’t have compliance teams or data protection officers. But small organisations often process a lot of personal data, and the reputation and liability risks are just as real.”Elizabeth Denham, Information Commissioner
The Information Commissioner is the UK regulator for data protection and can impose substantial penalties for infringements. Data subjects also have a right to claim compensation if a company has caused the damage by a breach of the rules.
When you collect data you need to be transparent about why you are collecting it and how you will use it. This should be set out in an easy to find (and read) privacy notice or policy.
Where you share data with anyone else you need to make it clear with whom you are sharing it and why.
There are specific requirements and guidance if you outsource your data handling to a third party data processor. You must carry out suitable diligence and have written agreements in place which cover defined points.
If you use CCTV, cloud computing, cookies or engage in direct marketing, to name but a few, there is also specific guidance which must be followed.
Our top tip is if you process personal data, make sure you pay the data protection fee and give the correct privacy information to people, don’t forget employees and suppliers as well as customers and clients.
