General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

On the 25th May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) updated Data Protection legislation in order to modernise laws that protect personal data and formed parts of the new Data Protection Act 2018.

The GDPR requires public authorities and businesses to identify the lawful basis for storing personal data, audit information we already hold and take a ‘secure by design’ approach to personal data.

It also introduces new individual rights relating to personal data, such as the right to erasure or the right to rectification.

This means, amongst other things, that the data held about you must only be used for specific purpose allowed by law.
