Confidential information includes the contents of any operating manuals or handbooks, which should not be disclosed to people outside of The Party.

When someone gives us any confidential information, they need to be sure that we will not pass this onto anyone else without their prior permission. The Party is registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office (Registration No. ZB344340) and our Workers seek to comply with the Data Protection Act 2018. Data security is taken very seriously, and all Workers with access to data are required to act responsibly and in accordance with The Party policy.

The Party records a range of data, including personal data. Some personal data may be of a sensitive nature. It is essential that all data is kept and handled securely at all times, not revealed to others or used inappropriately.
