Data Protection Top Tips

If you're an organisation who is new to the world of data protection, these top tips have been designed to introduce you to the spirit of our local Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2018 and help you get started.

Data Protection is about the fair, transparent and proper use of information about people. It’s part of the fundamental right to privacy but on a more practical level, it’s really about building trust between people and organisations (such as sole traders, businesses, charities, clubs and associations). It’s also about treating people fairly and openly whilst recognising their right to have control over their own personal data.

Always remember we want you to be data protection confident. If you’re in doubt or not sure about something related to data protection, have questions or need advice, our team at the Jersey Office of the Information Commissioner is available to help you. You can call us on (01534) 716530, email us at or visit our dedicated resource room that includes a variety of handy toolkits, checklists, templates and how-to-guides.
