The Data Protection Acts 1988 and 2003 ("the Acts") are designed to protect people’s privacy. The Acts confer rights on individuals in relation to the privacy of their personal data as well as responsibilities on those persons holding and processing such data.
Personal data is defined as data relating to a person who is or can be identified either from the data itself or from the data in conjunction with other information that is in, or is likely to come into, the possession of the Insolvency Service of Ireland. It covers any information that relates to an identifiable, living individual. This data can be held on computer or in manual files.
The Insolvency Service requires all its employees to comply with this Data Protection Policy and the Data Protection Guidelines.
