How does the Data Protection Act affect the records kept by HAPS?

 Adequate, relevant and not excessive. 

 Accurate. 

 Not kept for longer than is necessary. 

 Processed in line with your rights.

By law, organizations have to keep to these principles. If you believe in any way that HAPS is not processing your personal data in accordance with these principles, please

How does HAPS collect data? 

HAPS collects personal data through application forms, renewal forms, membership surveys and occasionally via email or telephone. All personally identifiable information provided to HAPS is processed in accordance with the principles of the Data Protection Act 1998. 

Is information passed to third parties? 

HAPS only disclose information to third parties if explicitly required to do so by UK law. HAPS will obtain your consent before passing on any information to any third parties. HAPS does not collect or compile personally identifying information for dissemination or sale to external parties for marketing purposes 

Who is allowed to see my information?
