Must I notify and how do I maintain my register entry?


The Information Commissioner’s Office maintains a public register of data controllers. Each register entry includes the name and address of the data controller and details about the types of personal information they process. Individuals can check the register to find out what processing of personal information is being done by a particular data controller. Notification is the process by which a data controller’s details are added to the register.
