Data Protection

The new Information Commissioner, Elizabeth Denham, recently said;

“Ask yourself: What are people expecting us to do with their personal data?”

She went on to say:

“Your answer should be in a good, clear privacy notice, but you must also have people’s trust that you won’t change your mind, do something different or do something new. It’s about building relationships and maintaining them.”

“That was one of my messages to the fundraising sector during the conference we jointly hosted …. with the Charity Commission and Fundraising Regulator. But it applies to organisations across the board, be they government departments, large accountancy firms, health trusts or small businesses.”

“I think it’s clear that in recent years people feel they’ve lost control of their own data. But it is within your gift to alleviate that feeling of helplessness people have over what happens to their personal details.”
