The Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2018 controls how your personal information is used by organisations, businesses or the government.
As an organisation we are bound by the act to provide an individual any information we may hold about them, should they request it and to ensure any data we do hold is treated in a responsible manner.
Data protection principles
Anyone processing personal data must comply with the eight enforceable principles of good practice.
The information must be:
• Processed fairly, lawfully and transparently
• Processed for limited purposes
• Adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary
• Accurate and up-to-date
• Not kept longer than necessary
How we use your personal information
Our Fair Processing Notice explains how the States of Jersey Police (SOJP) obtains, holds, uses and discloses information about people - their personal information, the steps we take to ensure that it is protected, and also describes the rights individuals have in regard to their personal information handled by SOJP.
The use and disclosure of personal information is governed in Jersey by the Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2018. The Chief Officer is registered with the Information Commissioner as a 'data controller' for the purposes of the Law. As such he is obliged to ensure that SOJP handles all personal information in accordance with the Law.
SOJP takes that responsibility very seriously and takes great care to ensure that personal information is handled appropriately in order to secure and maintain individuals trust and confidence in the force.
Find out what data we have about you
The Law provides the right for the individual to request details of personal information held about them by a data controller. This is known as 'subject access'.
