Better yet get it online at:


The reason for my original question is that I am running an online consultation for the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology (with the involvement of the Data Protection Registrar's Office) on Data Protection. Currently there is little representation from the online community as opposed to business generally so it would help add to this if any of you do envisage seeing any problems online with the new legislation. For instance the restrictions on import of data outside the EU or the requirement to specify the use to which data will be put at the time of collecting it, etc.
