As a recap, and for those that didn’t read our last GDPR blog, the General Data Protection Regulation comes into place on the 25th May 2018. The new rules have allowed for an increased level of legal certainty for data that travels within the EU. This forces organisation’s to be more transparent about the way they are using consumer data.
The new regulations have been heavily marketed and a number of horror stories have started to surface. We know that the legislation can sound scary, especially with the fines for non-compliance, but this is an essential regulation that will help to prevent our own personal data from being stolen, misused or sent to third parties without our prior consent – so it’s a good thing!
