Protection of Personal Data
Data protection in the UK is governed primarily by the Data Protection Act 2018 and the UK GDPR (the retained EU law version of the EU GDPR). For most SMEs, the UK GDPR is the focal point. It places a broad range of obligations upon those using personal data (data controllers and data processors) and sets out a series of important rights for individuals (data subjects).
The information presented in this section outlines a number of data protection issues relevant to those running a business or non-profit organisation to help them comply with applicable data protection laws and serves as a helpful guide to our extensive range of data protection document templates.
