General Data Protection Regulation

  • GDPR
The EU General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) add extra responsibilities to the Data Protection Act 1998 on the 25th of May, 2018.

All businesses that handle personal data must ensure that they are aware of the new rules and examine the processes they currently have in place to ensure they continue to comply with the law.

Handling information is a crucial part of running a good business. It enhances your reputation and increases employee and customer confidence. You will also save time and money by ensuring personal information is accurate, relevant and safe.

Are you a data controller or a data processor? 

Data Controller – A controller determines the purposes and means of processing personal data. They are the individual or legal person who controls and is responsible for rather keeping and use of personal information on computers or structural manual files.

Data Processor – A processor is a person who processes data on behalf of a data controller. They obtain, hold and process data such as organising, altering or adapting data.
