Data Protection Act

The Data Protection Act 1998 gives individuals a right of access to information about themselves. These pages contain guidelines on how to access information held by the National Library of Wales under the Data Protection Act.

The National Library of Wales takes its obligations with regard to data protection seriously and to this end the Library has a Data Protection Officer who is responsible for ensuring that the Library keeps within the requirements of the Data Protection Act 1998 and also within the terms and conditions of its notification with the Information Commissioner.

Contacting the Data Protection Officer: Linda Tomos is the Library's Data Protection Officer and all data protection enquiries should be directed to her.
