Further information on GDPR

The way that companies handle YOUR personal data is changing.

The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is an EU directive that will come into effect on the 25th May 2018.

The Government’s new Data Protection Bill is a reflection of the General Data Protection Regulation that will stay in force following the UK leaving the EU. The way businesses will collect, store and utilise your personal data will change. You will have more rights and more control over your own data and how it is used.
