Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2018 and what it means for you
From 25th May 2018 a new Data Protection Law comes into force. The new Law gives you new rights regarding your personal data.
You can request that anyone holding your personal data:
- only retains data that you agree they can or they have a legitimate reason to hold
- only retains the data held to the minimum period and time required
- gives you free access to key personal data they hold for you
- allows you to correct errors and delete data that is held wrongly
- allows you to transfer data to other providers without charge
We now need your permission to hold your personal data when providing you with services.
We have to:
- obtain your consent for holding your personal data and comply with the new Law
- make sure your personal data is held securely, kept accurate, up to date and for legitimate reasons
- provide you your key personal data on request within 28 days
- ensure anyone we pass your personal data to also keeps your data secure and only processes it for purposes we have agreed with you.
We need you to give consent to us continuing to hold your personal data.
We cannot hold your data and provide you with services if you do not give your consent for us to do so. We would recommend you give consent immediately to avoid the risk of not being able to access services after 25th May.
