GDPR - General Data Protection Regulation 25th May 2018

As we are sure you are all aware with the hundreds of emails filtering into your inbox, as of today, the new GDPR has come into place today.
“ The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applies to all organisations that handle European Union citizens' data.
The rules give consumers new rights, including rights to find out what data is being held on them, and to delete that information, unless a firm has a good reason to keep it.
Companies now have to get consumers' explicit consent to use personal information, and getting people to give more personal information in exchange for a premium service is not allowed.
Firms also have to meet higher standards for keeping data safe.” (BBC Business News)
