Below we provide information about the security and privacy of the Fingals web site. We want all our visitors to be confident using our site, particularly the use of personal information.

Fingals is committed to ensuring the privacy of all our customers. All information is collected and processed in accordance with the UK's Data Protection Act 1998. Fingals Privacy Policy only applies to the Fingals web site and does not apply to the practices of companies that Fingals does not own or control, or to people that Fingals does not employ or manage.

The Data Protection Principles

Anyone processing personal data must comply with the eight enforceable principles of good practice. They say that data must be:

  • fairly and lawfully processed
  • processed for limited purposes
  • adequate, relevant and not excessive
  • accurate
  • not kept longer than necessary
  • processed in accordance with the data subject's rights
  • secure
  • not transferred to countries without adequate protection.

Personal data covers both facts and opinions about the individual. It also includes information regarding the intentions of the data controller towards the individual, although in some limited circumstances exemptions will apply. With processing, the definition is far wider than before. For example, it incorporates the concepts of 'obtaining', holding' and 'disclosing'.
