Data Protection: Law and Practice

Front Cover
Sweet & Maxwell, 1999 - Data protection - 616 pages
Data protection is an increasingly important area of business law, perhaps more so as a result of the Data Protection Act 1998. This work gives practical guidance to the Act. Coverage includes the difficult transitional arrangements between the 1984 Act and the new law, and highlighted sections showing the main changes between the two. The text of the Act and Directive are included. The text also includes new issues practitioners have to consider, including: sensitive data controls; overseas transfers; the new individual rights; the fair obtaining rules; and application to manual files.
