Tesco is a huge supermarket chain and because of these they need to follow numerous regulations. In this task, I am going to analyse why it is essential for Tesco to comply with the legal, ethical and operational issues. I will be using their communication skills as examples to go into depth about why Tesco has to obey these regulations.
Data protection Act 1998: https://www.gov.uk
Many business store and use information about people. The data protection act protects information held about people from being misused. It massively effects the protection and processing of personal data, it makes people feel safer when they submit personal data to a company as well as giving the individual rights to withdraw and change information. This affects company’s usage of personal information, they are not allowed to legally pass on data without the permission of the individual so they can’t make money from giving details to third party organisations. Therefore this is why the information stored by businesses on databases must be obtained fairly and lawfully. This is Important to Tesco because this is a major reason as to why so many employees can trust this business with their eyes closed and be 100% certain to have their information secure.
