About this notice
The policy is suitable for any business or organisation.
The policy covers what data is collected, under what legal grounds it is stored and used (contractual for current and prospective staff, and because of one or more legal obligations for previous employees), and what rights data subjects have with respect to their data used by you.
Note that this document is not a policy for how data within an organisation should be handled, for example, that certain types of data should be stored encrypted. Such a policy could differ so much between organisations (or even departments within the same organisation), that producing a one-size-fits-all template is very difficult.
Free to use
We provide this template completely free of charge.
We don't ask you to acknowledge our copyright in it or mention us in any way within it.
The contents of the document cover:
- Data processed
- Legal basis under which it is processed
- Rights to access and removal
We are happy to answer any questions you have. Arrange for us to call you.

My only tiny comment would be in relation to the comments which are at the back. You either need to keep scrolling to the end or copy and paste another document so that you can see the actual text you're working on and all the useful comments side by side.
