GDPR

 

What is the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) summary?

 

The Data Protection Act 2018 is the UK's implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR). Everyone responsible for using personal data has to follow strict rules called 'data protection principles'. They must make sure the information is: used fairly, lawfully and transparently.

Consequently, it describes strict requirements for companies and organisations on collecting, storing, processing and managing personal data. Businesses (and charities) have to adopt their processes and services they use to collect and handle the personally identifiable data of their employees and contacts (church family).

The UK GDPR sets out seven key principles:

  • Lawfulness, fairness and transparency.
  • Purpose limitation.
  • Data minimisation.
  • Accuracy.
  • Storage limitation.
  • Integrity and confidentiality (security)
  • Accountability.
