The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new piece of EU legislation that came into force on 25th May 2018. The core intent of GDPR is to give individual’s more control over the use of their personal data and how data is stored. This legislation along with the Data Protection Agreement 2018 (DPA) gives more rights to you as an individual and more obligations to organisations holding your personal data.
One of the rights is a right to be informed, which means we have to give you even more information than we do now about the way in which we use, share and store your personal information.
