1.  WHAT  IS  GDPR?
The  GDPR  is  the  culmination  of  4  years  work  by  the  EU  to  bring  data  protection  legislation  into  the  'modern'  age  by  focusing  on  the different  and  sometimes  innovative  ways  data  is  stored  and  used.  It  supersedes  the  Data  Protection  Act  of  1998  and  aims  to  give consumers  more  say  over  how  their  data  is  used.  This  directive  also  streamlines  legislation  throughout  the  EU.

2.  YOUR  RIGHTS  AS  AN INDIVIDUAL.
From  the  25th  May  2018  you  will  have  revised  rights  under  the  new  EU  General  Data  Protection  Regulation.  These  are:-

  • The  right  to  be  informed
  • The  right  of  access
  • The  right  to  rectification
  • The  right  to  erase
  • The  right  to  restrict  processing
  • The  right  to  data  portability
  • The  right  to  object
  • The  right  not  to  be  subject  to  automated  decision  making  including  profiling.
