This Data Protection Clause has been designed for use in a
wide range of documents to assist in compliance with UK data protection law
(including the Data Protection Act 2018 and the UK GDPR). The clause states
that you will use personal data in accordance with the law and refers to a
Privacy Notice in which full details are available.
This document has been updated for compatibility with the UK GDPR. It is ready for use from the start of 2021.
This clause can be used alone or in combination with a Data Processing
Clause. If one party is only collecting personal data from the other and
using it (generally) for the purposes of the agreement or transaction in
question, this clause alone should be sufficient. If, on the other hand,
one party to the agreement is likely to be processing personal data on the
other’s behalf (where the other is already a data controller), the
Data Processing Clause should also be used.
This clause contains several form fields that you must complete with the
appropriate details. Most of them are labelled “insert party name…” This
refers to the names of the parties to the agreement or terms and conditions
document that you wish to insert the clause into. If, for example, you are
adding this to an agreement in which you are “the Company” and the second
party is “the Client”, these are the names that should be entered into
The clause also makes reference to a Privacy Notice. Using the options
included, either refer to where your privacy notice is available, or insert
that notice as a schedule into the agreement you are amending, adding the
appropriate reference to this clause.
