Practical advice about protecting your personal information and how to exercise the rights available to you.
We live in a data-driven world. Almost every transaction and interaction you have with most organisations involves you sharing personal information, such as your name, address and birth date. You share information online too, every time you visit a website, search for or buy something, use social media or send an email.
Sharing your personal data helps makes life easier, more convenient and connected. But your data is your data. It belongs to you so it's important your data is used only in ways you would reasonably expect, and that it stays safe. Data protection law makes sure everyone’s data is used properly and legally.
In today’s business world, most organisations and Government of Jersey take data protection and freedom of information very seriously, and the majority of issues are resolved without ever needing to raise a concern with us.
