St Ives respects an individual’s right to privacy and it is fully committed to the principles of the Data Protection Act 1998 (the Act).
The Act sets out a series of rules which St Ives must keep to when it uses personal information, namely:-
The Data Protection Act 1998 gives individuals a number of rights, namely:-
The Data Protection Act 1998 (the Act) gives individuals the right to request, and in most cases to be given, a copy of the information which St Ives holds about them.
Please note that the Act only entitles an individual to see, or be given a copy of, their own information. No-one is entitled to see someone else's information unless they have obtained that individual’s permission to do so. This applies to spouses, relatives, friends etc.
A Data Subject who wants to see, or be given, a full copy of his/her record(s) will need to make his/her request in writing to:
The Company Secretary: St Ives plc, One Tudor Street, London, EC4Y 0AH
To facilitate a request the applicant is invited to complete and submit a pro-forma 'Access to Records' form, which is available via:
The company’s reply will be sent to the Data Subject by Royal Mail Recorded Delivery Service. Important – St Ives will take every care to ensure that it is addressed correctly. St Ives cannot, however, be held liable if the Information is lost in the post or incorrectly delivered or opened by someone else in the applicant’s household.
We, St Ives, will need as much information as possible to enable us to identify you and the record(s) that you are seeking. Please look at the guidance notes and 'Access to Records' form that St Ives has produced.
No. You must tell St Ives what records you are seeking, the use of the word ‘all’ is not acceptable, for example: ‘my share save records’.
Yes. If you tell us what part of your record you want, for example a specific document or information on your record between certain dates, St Ives will give you a copy of just that.
There will be a small charge of £10, unless you are an employee applying for a copy of your record(s) held by St Ives, charged for this service.
No. The Act only entitles you to access your own information - this also means that no one else can access your information. This applies to spouses, relatives and friends etc.
Yes, normally St Ives will give you a complete copy of the information (paper and electronic records) which you have requested. There are, however, a few situations where St Ives may not be able to provide you with all, or some, of the information that you are requesting, for example:
The Act requires St Ives to give you a copy of your information within 40 calendar days of receiving your request. St Ives shall endeavour to respond well before his statutory deadline.
The foregoing is very basic information about the Data Protection Act 1998.
