  • Fair processing

    Fair processing means that an individual should normally have the opportunity to know which organisations hold information about them, and why (i.e. that it is fairly collected).  When people give information, they should be told what it will be used for and to whom it will be passed.  They should also be entitled to check records held about them and correct errors.  In research, fair collection is usually achieved through a formal consent process.
