Information Commissioner’s Office
The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) is an independent authority, set up to uphold information rights in the public interest, and to promote openness by public bodies and data privacy for individuals. While the ICO does not award compensation, it does have the power to impose hefty fines on organisations in breach of their duties. You have the right to ask the ICO to assess if an organisation breached the Data Protection Act.
At Hayes Connor Solicitors we often work with the ICO to gather as much evidence as possible to help our clients succeed.
