Data Protection

It sets out how it complies with the principles of all relevant UK and EU laws in respect of personal data. It also states how it protects the “rights and freedoms” of individuals whose information CSW  collects in accordance with the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA 2018) and General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). To support this commitment, CSW has developed, implemented and continuously improves an information management system (IMS).
