EU data protection laws (the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force on 25 May 2018. It replaces the Data Protection Act 1998 in the UK. The aim of the new legislation allows the European Union (EU) citizens to better control their personal data. It also modernises and unifies rules allowing businesses to increase transparency and to benefit from greater consumer trust. The GDPR applies to ‘personal data’, which means any information relating to an identifiable person who can be directly or indirectly identified in particular by reference to an identifier.
We may change this policy from time to time by updating this page. You should check this page periodically to ensure that you are happy with any changes.
