The Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) regulates the processing of personal data in any format by Outreach Rescue Medic Skills (‘ORMS), including both digital and hard copy personal data and all other formats. ‘Personal data’ is any information relating to a living individual, and ‘processing’ is any activity carried out involving personal data, including holding and storing it.
On 25th May 2018 the DPA will be superseded in the UK by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which provides individuals with enhanced rights, and imposes increased responsibilities on organisations processing personal data. This statement applies under both the DPA and GDPR.
