General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)

The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) came into effect on 25th May 2018 and replaces the law on data protection (The Data Protection Act 1998).  It gives individuals more rights and protection regarding how their personal data is used by councils.  Local Councils and Parish Meetings must comply with its requirements, just like any other organisation.
