Data protection act
When processing personal data, the personal Data Protection Act (DPA) will be followed. This law helps to protect the privacy of citizens. This means that personal data submitted via internet are collected, stored, used, or made available in any other form, related, as well as shielded, under this law.
On the basis of the DPA the person shall be informed before personal data are processed and also being notified of the purpose for which it is collected (article 33). So personal information is only processed if that is expressly stated and only for the reason for which the data are stored.
