Protecting your information (GDPR)

General Data Protection Regulations

Your personal information is very important to you and to us.  The way we collect, keep and use information about you has developed with technology.  The laws that govern the use of your personal data have changed to cover these developments.

From 25 May 2018, the UK has to adhere to the new data protection laws – the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).

You’re better protected

The new rules make sure that all organisations are set up to protect any personal data they hold, and to act if something goes wrong.  Rest assured, robust security has always been a crucial part of everything we do.

You have more control

You have a right to have your privacy respected and your data protected.  the new law gives you easier access to the personal information we hold about you, if you wish to check or change it.  It is designed to give you confidence that this information is accurate, up to date ad well managed.

You can choose who can contact you, and how, and you can change your mind.  You can control if and how we contact you, for example by email or phone. We must give you the opportunity to change your mind about the choices you have made. This helps to give you options and keep you in control.
