What else you might like to know about Data Protection Advice

If your business handles sensitive data on behalf of employees or customers, a legal service provider can help you understand your legal obligations and assist in implementing policies. Here is some basic guidance to inform your choice of legal expert.

What is the data protection act?

The data protection act is a feature of UK law designed to protect the rights of employees. It ensures the safety of those who provide personal information that may be stored and safeguarded.

What data applies to the data protection act?

Any data relating to individuals – such as their name, address and medical history – that is stored electronically on a computer system or server falls under the data protection act. Data that can be linked to other records to identify an individual is also covered by the act.

Does it matter if the data is physical or digital?

All personal data that is stored on a computer is included in the act, but the same cannot be said for information stored in traditional files. However, any data that is currently stored as a hard copy but is earmarked for digitisation in future is still subject to the act.

How can I find the most suitable legal expert?

If you need guidance on your data protection policy and adherence to the act then it is important to seek the help of a legal service provider experienced in this specialist field.

What happens if I fail to comply with the data protection act?

If the Information Commissioner's Office finds you to be in breach of the Data Protection Act you may be ordered to alter specific elements of your data storage system or follow set instructions to guarantee your compliance in the future. If you have deliberately breached the act it is possible to face prosecution and a custodial sentence.

  • A very good site. It brought up several different quotes for my service which I was able to compare and I'm very satisfied with the provider I've chosen.

  • The site was well laid out and everything was easy to understand. Through The Law Superstore I found a great solicitor who has expert knowledge about the field I needed. I did look at other sites in my search for a solicitor, but The Law Superstore was the only site that didn't want payment upfront.

  • The website was really really good, I found it very easy to use and find the service I needed. It has been designed to look extremely professional and I really think it is a fantastic idea. I’ve actually got the website saved so if I do have the need for a legal service provider in the future I know where to go.

  • It’s a really useful tool for finding a solicitor; I thought that the website was really well designed, clear and easy to use. I had no issues finding the service I required and liked the fact all the results were displayed in a comparison table, I can see that you have a wide range of firms on your panel.
