(Global Data Protection Regulations)

What is GDPR?

 The General Data Protection Regulation is an EU-wide law that comes into force on the 25th May 2018. The regulation will affect every organisation that handles the personal data of EU citizens (and it will still apply after Brexit!) Essentially, the rules about how you can handle people’s data are changing and a new set of individuals’ rights has been established. The laws are complex (there are 99 articles in the legislation) but compliance needn’t be – if you let us handle things.
