Data Protecton Act 1998, Freedom of Information Act 2000 - ADAVISTA can guide you through it


All businesses process “personal data” as defined in the Data Protection Act 1998 – aDaVista is no exception.  We process all data in accordance with the legislation. Our compliance is demonstrated by our policies and procedures as well as the “Notification” (registration) with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).  The Notification lists the purposes for which we process data and is available on the ICO website –  Follow the link to the Public Register of Data Controllers and search either ADAVISTA or ROBYN BANKS.  If we need to process “sensitive personal data”, you will be made aware of the fact and the intended processing at the time of collection.
We may share data with third parties as part of our contracted services and/or if we are required to do so by law.  We cannot accept responsibility for any processing conducted by any third party which is outside our remit.
Your rights under the legislation are unaffected by this policy.  If you wish to request a copy of the data we may hold on you, please make such a request in writing - email is acceptable.  Please mark your request for the attention of the Data Protection Officer. Please note that we charge an administrative fee of £5.00 (nil VAT).

Under the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations 2003 as amended in 2011, we have conducted an audit of our website and discovered that no cookies are utilised by the site.  The only feature which uses something similar to a cookie is the “Add to Favourite’s” feature on the Home page.  This only puts a cookie onto the visitor’s system as they make the request to add the web address to their own preferences.  Therefore we do not believe it is subject to the Rules regarding seeking meaningful consent.  This policy is under review with every change we may make to the website.
