Data Protection

From the 1 January 2021, the ‘UK GDPR’ has replaced the GDPR as the UK’s data protection law. The UK GDPR (which is currently substantially similar to the EU’s GDPR) is brought into force by the Data Protection Act 2018 and the Data Protection, Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations 2019.                                                                                                                                                                                                 Where the text ‘GDPR’ appears on the Councils website, this now refers to the ‘UK GDPR’.
