Data Protection

Under the Data Protection Act 1998 individuals have a right of access to information held about them by NITB (although this is subject to some exemptions). These requests are known as subject access requests. If you want to ask us for information which we may hold about you personally then this will be dealt with under the Data Protection Act 1998. This would include information relating to health records, employment and training records – anything which is limited to you as a person whether as an employee or partner of any kind.
