Equity releases introduction to the General Data Protection Regulation

Equity has created an introduction to the General Data Protection Regulation for the union's members. 

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Privacy & Electronic Communication Regulations (PECR) place new restrictions on how companies, including small businesses and sole traders, process data, particularly for marketing purposes.

If you hold personal data, such as clients, then you are likely to be covered by this legislation. Equity's new introduction offers some insight into this subject.

Please note, however, that this is not comprehensive legal advice, nor a substitute for reading the full advice available from the Information Commissioner’s Office (www.ico.org.uk) and it is strongly recommended that you undertake further research to ensure compliance.
