About this document
The policy is suitable for any business or organisation and enables both staff and employers to ensure that their workplace complies with the UK Data Protection Act 1998. The policy includes detailed provisions regarding the collection, use and storage of any data gathered within the workplace.
Your legal obligation, as in other areas, is to comply with the law. There is no specific obligation to publish and make available a data protection policy to all staff. However, if any person within the business or organisation breaks data protection law then the publication of this policy enables the employer to invoke a disciplinary procedure and to defend against any accusation that the company is in breach of the law.

This template is suitable for employers wishing to introduce a data protection policy into their workplace. You may be looking to introduce a formal written policy for the first time, or to replace an older policy.
