Northumbria CRC collects and processes personal information as an essential part of probation work. This can include information on staff, victims of crime, offenders, and individuals directly relevant to the management of an offender.
The company is obliged to process this information in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. The act works in two ways:
1. It gives individuals (data subjects) certain rights regarding information held about them
2. It places obligations on those who process information (data controllers)
The Data Protection Act is enforced by the Information Commissioner, an independent supervisory authority reporting directly to parliament.
