At O’Connor Financial Planning the privacy and protection rights of our customers is very important to us.
Data Protection is the safeguarding of the privacy rights of individuals in relation to the processing of personal data, in both paper and electronic format. The Data Protection Acts 1988 and 2003 (the “Data Protection Acts”) lay down strict rules about the way in which personal data and sensitive personal data are collected, accessed, used and disclosed. The Data Protection Acts also permit individuals to access their personal data on request, and confer on individuals the right to have personal data amended if found to be incorrect.
This document outlines O’Connor Financial Planning’s policy to help ensure that we comply with the Data Protection Acts.
