General Data Protection Regulations
The European Union’s (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was introduced to unify all EU member states’ approaches to data regulation, ensuring all data protection laws are applied identically in every country within the EU. It will protect EU citizens from organisations using their data irresponsibly and puts them in charge of what information is shared, where and how it is shared.
The GDPR is due to come into force on 25 May – and even though the UK is due to leave Europe in the next 12 months, it will still apply to all businesses handling EU residents’ data, effectively replacing the Data Protection Act 1998.
In line with the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) we have updated our Privacy Notice and Data Protection documents.
