General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
What is the General Data Protection Regulation?
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the new legal framework in the EU which will come into force on 25 May 2018. There will also be a new Data Protection Act, which is currently going through Parliament. This new Act will supplement the GDPR and provide new rights to individuals concerning their personal data.
What will this new law mean for me?
The rights that individuals have about how their personal data is handled and stored are being changed and enhanced. You can find out about the GDPR rights on the ICO website.
You will have the right to know how the data has been processed and make requests, in certain circumstances. These are outlined in the privacy notice (please follow link below).
