In May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will replace the Data Protection Act 1998 in the UK.
Myron Jobson, of The Daily Mail This is Money, says: “The General Data Protection Regulation is a piece of legislation designed by the European Union to which every citizen in the EU (including the UK) must adhere.
There is a lot to this new legal framework but, put simply, it will introduce stricter rules on how firms and organisations handle and use our personal data.”
GDPR will require us to give you greater control over how your data may be shared with third parties for the purposes of direct mail. It will also ensure that we don’t hold onto your data unnecessarily.
