Access Request Policy
At HealthSectorTalent (HST) your privacy and data protection rights are very important to us.
Data Protection is the safeguarding of the privacy rights of individuals in relation to the processing of personal data, in both paper and electronic format. The Data Protection Acts 1988 and 2003, The General Data Protection Regulations 2016, lay down strict rules about the way in which personal data and sensitive personal data are collected, accessed, used and disclosed. The Data Protection Acts/Regulations also permit individuals to access their personal data on request, and confer on individuals the right to have their personal data amended if found to be incorrect.
