What is GDPR?
In simple terms, the General Data Protection Regulation is a reform to the 1995 Data Protection Directive, and aims to strengthen laws on data protection, ultimately safeguarding the rights and freedoms of you and other EU citizens, and giving you control over your personal data.
These rights ensure your personal data is only processed with your consent, and it is the responsibility of the companies and organisations handling this data to ensure your rights are always upheld and that only the data necessary for the specific purpose is held.
How will it affect me?
