This is a new regulation which comes into place on the 25th May 2018 and will replace the existing Data Protection Act. The new act is an update and a new way of handling individual personal data.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applies to any organisation that handles personal date across the EU. Even though the UK is leaving the EU we are to comply with the regulation until such time. The new regulation now means controls are to be put in place for how data is collected and used.
What does this mean for PJJS?
