Dear Lyndsey

I recently contacted the Office of the Information Commissioner with 
regard to Cloud storage; they forwarded the following link with 
particular emphasis on Chapter 5:

http://www.ico.gov.uk/for_organisations/guidance_index/~/media/documents/library/Data_Protection/Detailed_specialist_guides/personal_information_online_cop.ashx
[2] http://www.ico.gov.uk/

I found this helpful - I hope you do too!

Best regards

Catherine Mackay
