with simple websites that collect little or no data directly from or about their
users (save for contact details collected when a user sends an email to the
operator of the website and data that is collected automatically by the site, such as IP addresses).
This document has also been written with the GDPR in mind, covering
important points such as details of data subjects' rights, information on
the retention of personal data (i.e. for how long it will be kept), and
data subject access requests.
This template has been reviewed and updated in light of best practice which
has become established since the GDPR came into effect in May 2018. More
detail is provided to data subjects in a number of key areas, including how
personal data is collected, the source of that data, how it is used, and
how it is shared. Furthermore, references to the Data Protection Act 2018
have been added to help make for a smoother Brexit transition in 2019.
Optional phrases / clauses are enclosed in square brackets. These should be
read carefully and selected so as to be compatible with one another. Unused
options should be removed from the document.
