Your Right to Know

What is the purpose of the act?

The Data Protection Act 2018 / General Data Protection Regulation places certain obligations upon organisations which collect and use personal information - for example, they must observe a set of six principles which form the framework for compliance.

The Chief Constable of West Mercia Police is the data controller in respect of personal information collected and processed by the West Mercia Police Force. The Chief Constable has notified the Information Commissioner of the purposes for which personal information are processed by the West Mercia Police Force. The full register can be seen on the Information Commissioner's web site.
