Data Protection Policies
1. What is the GDPR?
GDPR is the General Data Protection Regulation. It came into effect from 25 May 2018. It sets out a series of new UK laws concerning how data is processed and used. The objective of the regulation is to strengthen and standardise data protection laws for all UK citizens.
These regulations will apply to any organisation that controls and/or processes data on behalf of an individual or group of individuals. Those responsible for adhering to these regulations include employees of the organisation, including contractors, consultants, agents and third parties who have access to data either directly or indirectly.
