Complete the Data Protection Act Worksheet (below)
 
 
 
 
Data Protection Act

The use of computers for storing and processing information has brought many advantages for organisations that work with data eg.  Doctors, Police and the Tax Office.

Your privacy might be affected by the use of a computer to store information about you.  Imagine - if all of the information stored about you by different companies could be put together to form a complete portfolio about you - how much money you earn, what health problems you have, who your friends are, what clubs you are members of, if you have ever failed to pay any bills or if you have ever been in trouble with the Police.  They could also sell this information to other people.  It may be easier for unauthorised people to gain access to this information when it is stored on a computer, unless it is being kept securely.  To protect our privacy a law called the Data Protection Act (1998) was introduced.

 

There are 8 principles of Data Protection.  These are:

  1. The data must be collected and used fairly and lawfully.
  2. The data must be collected only for lawful purposes.
  3. The data must be used only for the registered purpose.
  4. The data stored must be relevant to the purpose for which it was collected.
  5. The data stored must be kept accurate and up to date.
  6. The data stored must be kept no longer than necessary.
  7. The data must be kept secure.
  8. The data must not be transferred to countries that do not have suitable data protection laws.

 

Sometimes data is exempt from the Act - it doesn’t apply.  The exemptions are:

·      Personal data held for home use or recreational purposes.

·      Information which can not be disclosed for reasons of national security.

·      Information relating to a crime

·      Information regarding taxation

 

Activities

 

1.      Do you think anyone should be able to keep a data file about you and your family? Why?

2.      Do you think that your school would keep the same details as the hospital or the membership file at a fan club you belong to? Why?

3.      Name ONE of the data protection principles

4.   Copy the table below and write down 4 places where you think data is held about yourself on a computer.  List the kinds   of information that might be held, eg. name, address. 

 

Place where data is held

What data might they hold?
