We are fully compliant with all data protection legislation laid down for the handling of personal sensitive data by the Information Commissioners Office. We operate to the guidelines laid down by the ICO which are:
1. Only collect information that you need for a specific purpose.
2. Keep it secure; ensure it is relevant and up to date.
3. Only hold as much as you need, and only for as long as you need it.
4. Allow the subject of the information to see it on request.
Additionally we abide by the principles of Caldicott and work with Caldicott Guardians to ensure compliance.
