The Office of the Ombudsman – Data Protection Policy

The Office of the Ombudsman needs to collect, hold and use certain types of information about the individuals or service users who come into contact with it in order to carry out its work. This personal information must be collected and dealt with appropriately whether it is collected on paper, stored in a computer database, or recorded on other material and there are safeguards to ensure this under the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).

The Data Protection Policy (DPP) sets out how we seek to protect personal data to ensure that our staff understands the rules governing their use of personal data to which they have access in the course of their work.
