On 25 May 2018 the Data Protection Act 1998 will be replaced by the General Data Protection Regulation. This legislation places responsibilities and liabilities on Preston City Council as an organisation that collects and processes personal data.
This Regulation affects every citizen of Preston and every employee of Preston City Council, as most of our information is held electronically or in structured manual records.
If these records contain personal data then we must be very careful to whom we disclose the information. If the information is disclosed, even accidentally, Preston City Council and the officer can be held liable under the act.
