  • The General Data Protection Regulations Open or Close

    The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new, Europe-wide law that replaces the Data Protection Act 1998 in the UK. It is part of the wider package of reform to the data protection landscape that includes the Data Protection Bill. The GDPR sets out requirements for how organisations will need to handle personal data from 25 May 2018.

    Personal data is information relating to an identifiable living individual. Whenever personal data is processed, collected, recorded, stored or disposed of it must be done within the terms of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).

    For more information on GDPR please visit the Information Commissioner’s Office website www.ico.org.uk
    For information on how the Council uses personal information please take a look at our Privacy Statements .
