The Act requires all organisations that gather and deal with personal information to comply with eight important rules known as the Data Protection principles.
Organisations or people that collect and use personal information are known as Data Controllers.
As a Data Controller, Carmarthenshire County County Council is committed to complying with the legislation by applying the Data Protection Principles across all its services.
