The LETSystem Design Manual
4.5 Data Protection Act
Registries are subject to the Data Protection Act.
Registries will find their operations to be much easier if they register under the Data Protection Act. There is a possible exemption for small Registries under Exemption 5 (Unincorporate Members’ Clubs). But the requirements will be quite strict and there is always the risk of non- compliance.
Registration under the Act costs £75 for 3 years (just less than 15p per week). The following clauses should then be included in the Registry Agreement:
“I agree to the personal details on this form being held on computer, and used for maintaining a record of my trading in the system.
NB. Computer repair/maintenance will be carried out by reputable service personnel who will be advised of the confidential nature of these records.”
