What is GDPR?
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is an overhaul of the previous Data Protection Directive, designed to give a consistent, standardised approach to the collection and use of personal information across all European Union Member States. In each country has its own Supervisory Authority and in the UK, this is the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) https://ico.org.uk
What GDPR mean for me?
Anyone (or company) responsible for collecting, processing or controlling your personal data will now be required to ensure there is a lawful reason for collection and processing it. Where you consent to your data being collected, your consent should also be freely and easily retractable. Data Protection Officers (DPO) of your personal data need to ensure that only the necessary data required from you and that is retained and only for as long as it is required. Under normal circumstances, you have the right to access your data and you have the right to have it corrected, sent to you or deleted.
The sharing of your personal data is also restricted. Your explicit consent being required if we wish to share your data with others or use it for any other purpose than it was originally collected (unless other lawful reasons for sharing the data apply, e.g. criminal activity or to act in your best interests).
