bto will guide you through the basics of data protection with the assistance of Lego data protection officer including notification and the eight Principles enshrined in the Data Protection Act 1998.

Non-compliance with the Data Protection Act isn’t an easy low-cost option. Not complying can be an expensive and embarrassing experience. In addition to the ICO issuing substantial fines, the public is increasingly aware of its right to claim damages for lost or misused data. bto is currently advising on a number of individual claims. bto can provide tailored data protection advice and policies which are right for your business.
