The Data Protection Act and igeek

As a hosting company, igeek physically hold data belonging to other companies. Often, we have been granted access to the data of other companies who use us as hosts, as we are called upon to develop or maintain databases. Additionally, as developers, systems we create run on a variety of platforms, including mobile devices which means that data may be held in several places.

With respect to the Data Protection Act, therefore, we would like to state:

We recommend that our clients examine any legal requirements pertaining to their business, as outlined in the Data Protection Act, making special note of any issues which relate to mobile devices (eg mobile phones, notebook computers and tablet devices) which may hold personal and / or business data.
