Legal Guidelines

Internet: Protection of Privacy - Data Contollers

In using the Internet for their business dealings, data controllers must take into account the privacy rights of individuals and their own responsibilities under privacy and data protection legislation. The following points should be considered by data controllers in planning their Internet strategies.

Personal data placed on the Internet is available world-wide. In many countries the use of personal data is not protected by legislation. Because of this it is always advisable and will often be essential to obtain consent from individuals before publishing their personal data on your website.

When collecting information via the Internet always inform the user of who you are, what personal data you are collecting, processing and storing and for what purpose. Do this before a user gives you any information, when they visit your site and wherever they are asked to provide information, for example via an on-line application form. It is good practice to ask for consent for the collection of all data and it is usually essential to get consent if you want to process sensitive personal data.

It is good practice for a data controller who sets up a website to provide a statement of its privacy policy. A 'privacy statement' helps individuals to decide whether or not to visit a site and, when they do visit, whether or not to provide any personal information to the data controller.

Always let individuals know when you intend to use 'Cookies' or other covert software to collect information about them.

Never collect or retain personal data unless it is strictly necessary for your purposes. For example you should not require a persons name and full address to provide an on-line quotation. If extra information is required for marketing purposes this should be made clear and the provision of the information should be optional.

Design your systems in such a way as to avoid or minimise the use of personal data.

Upon a user's request you should correct, change or delete inaccurate details. If information is altered notify the third parties to whom the original information was communicated. Regularly delete data which is out of date or no longer required.

Stop processing data if the user objects to it because the processing is causing them damage or distress.

Only use personal data collected on-line for marketing purposes where the user has already been told that his or her information was to be used in this way. If a user asks you to stop using his or her data for marketing purposes you must do so and the individual should always be given the opportunity to opt of the use of his or her data for marketing. It is also good practice to get the individual's consent before using their information for marketing. It will always be necessary to get their consent where if the data is sensitive.

Use the most up to date technologies to protect the personal data collected or stored on your site. Especially sensitive or valuable information, such as financial details should be protected by reliable encryption technologies.
