What is the GDPR?
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) superseded the UK Data Protection Act 1998 on 25 May 2018. It expands the rights of individuals to control how their personal data is collected and processed, and places a range of new obligations on organisations to be more accountable for data protection. The Data Protection Act 2018 enshrines the GDPR into UK law, and supplements the GDPR by filling in the sections of the Regulation that are left to individual member states to interpret and implement. As an act of UK law, the Data Protection Act’s requirements will continue to apply after Brexit.
