We take our responsibilities regarding the protection of personal privacy very seriously. As such, you can rest assured that any personal data you may be asked to reveal in order to use some of the features that are or will become available on myhrdept.co.uk will be held and processed in accordance with the requirements of the 1998 Data Protection Act.

Where you are invited to submit personal data, such as an e-mail or postal address or a telephone number, this will be for the purposes of the operation of myhrdept.co.uk or for us to send you information from time to time. We do not use information you have entered, for example about your employees, for any other purpose, nor will we disclose it to third parties without your, or if appropriate, your employee’s consent.

You also have responsibilities under the DPA in relation to the details you store in your account on myhrdept.co.uk. In particular you should ensure that only 'authorised persons' have access to your login details for the site and you should ensure that passwords etc are stored securely. Myhrdept.co.uk is an on-line service that can be accessed from any computer anywhere in the world. We cannot be held responsible for documents lost or personal data revealed through your failing to protect your passwords and/or other failures of your responsibilities under the DPA. Where an 'authorised person' leaves your business, you should change your password for myhrdept.co.uk. It is good practice to regularly change passwords and ensure that your password pattern is not predictable.
