  • The eight principles
    • Personel data shall be processed fairly and lawfully
      • This means that you should be told about data which is being collected about you and should be asked for your permisions to collect it. You should also be made aware of the reason why the data is being collected and what it will be used for.
    • Personal data can be held only for specified and lawful purposes
      • The data controller has to state why they want to collect and store infomation when they apply to do so. If they use the data they have collected for other purposes, they are breaking the law.
    • Personal data should be adaquate, relevant and not excessive for the required purpose
      • Organisations should only be able to collect the data that they need and no more. Your school nneds to know your parents phone number in case they nned to contact them in an emergency. However, they do not need to know what your grandmothers name is, nor do they need to know your eye colour. they should not ask this as it would be excessive.
    • personel data should be kept accurate and kept up to date
