General Data Protection Regulation
The Data Protection Act 2018 supplements the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which came into force on May 25, 2018 and was designed to modernise the laws that protect the use of personal information.
The new legislation impacts every business in the UK. It is essential that companies are aware of the changes and new obligations and all businesses should register with the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO).

The ICO has opened a public register for organisations wanting to pledge their support for their customers data rights.
Organisations who sign the public register gain access to a banner for use on their communication materials. This helps demonstrate their supports for people’s data rights and carries the ICO logo.
