In order to gather and store customer information securely, establishments may need to be registered with the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO). This will be the case if you are using an electronic system to gather and store data.

To establish if you need to register your organisation with the ICO please complete the registration self-assessment

If your business is already a data controller, you should already be registered with the ICO. A data controller can be any organisation or sole trader who processes personal information such as CCTV, staff or customer details.

However, if you are using an electronic system to store customer data and not already a data controller, or have not already registered as one, you may need to register with the ICO. If you are unsure whether you need to register, please contact the ICO via their helpline on 0303 123 1113, or visitthe Information Commissioner's Office

The cost of the data protection fee depends on the size and turnover of the business, but for most businesses it will cost £40 or £60. The form will take around 15 minutes to complete. This can be completed online at the Data Commissioner's Office site.
