DPO Etiquette

Remember that the DPO is a place of work so PLEASE...

  • Be considerate when using mobile phones.
    If you need to use your phone, ensure that you turn all volumes down, speak quietly and keep your phone call length to a minimum.
    We would prefer it that all calls not directly related to your work in the DPO be taken into the corridor.

  • Leave your bench space clean and tidy.
    There are bins provided at both exits of the DPO, and keyboard wipes at the end of each bench.

  • Be aware of the people around you and keep social communication discrete.

  • Ensure that you log off before you leave.
    It is against IT syndicate rules to leave a computer unattended for more than a few minutes. It is a security risk and can prevent others from accessing a needed workstation.
