Data protection applies to any personal data, on-line or off-line, computerised or not.

Very true however what is often missed by those in charge of Data Protection is that any record where disclosure is required by law is exempt from non-disclosure provisions.

Data protection Act section 35-
35 Disclosures required by law or made in connection with legal proceedings etc.

(1)Personal data are exempt from the non-disclosure provisions where the disclosure is required by or under any enactment, by any rule of law or by the order of a court.

Civil BMDs are required to be disclosed as are C of E Baptisms, Marriages and Burials due to the various Acts of Parliamnet requiring them to be kept and disclosed
Births and Deaths Registration Act, 1874 & Births, Marriages and Deaths Registration Act, 1836 etc.

As we have gained from the past, we owe the future a debt, which we pay by sharing today.
