Data Protection Policy Published 18 April 2019

The purpose of this policy is to outline the key principles of data protection law and set out how CHS meets its legal obligations to ensure that all data is held and processed in compliance with data protection.

Children’s Hearings Scotland (CHS) is required to collect and maintain certain personal data about individuals for the purpose of satisfying our statutory, operational and regulatory
obligations.


Data Protection law places requirements on the CHS community which includes National
Team members (permanent and temporary, including contractors) , Board members, Area
Support Team (AST) members, Clerks to the AST (including their teams), and Panel
Members. It is the responsibility of all CHS community members to protect the personal data
of data subjects by following this policy and the associated guidance. CHS (this includes Board, Panel and AST members) is a Data Controller, as defined in Article 4(7) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and must ensure that all of the data protection requirements are implemented.
