The Office of Fair Trading is committed to protecting and respecting your right to privacy. The OFT holds and processes personal data in accordance with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) and the Data Protection Act 2004.
Our privacy notice aims to provide you with information on what data we collect about you, what we do with that information and why we do it, who we share it with, and how we protect your privacy. The notice covers all personal data collected by the OFT and where we tell other organisations to collect information for us. This is the same whether the data are collected by letter, email, face to face, telephone or online.
If you are dissatisfied with how the OFT have handled your data you can make a complaint about the way we process your personal information to the Gibraltar Regulatory Authority. Under the Data Protection Act 2004, the Gibraltar Regulatory Authority is nominated as the Data Protection Commissioner. The Gibraltar Regulatory Authority is thereby the independent statutory body responsible for the enforcement of the Data Protection Act 2004, and carries out the functions assigned to it, to uphold the rights of individuals and their privacy. Amongst other things, this includes the provision of advice on data protection related matters and the investigation of complaints, as well as raising awareness on privacy issues.
