What is it?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect on 25th May 2018 and applies to most UK businesses and organisations. It outlines seven key principles surrounding data management, the obligations of companies processing personal data, and the rights of an individual concerning their information.

Why does it matter?

If your company collects personal information about your customers, you could be heavily penalised for failing to comply with GDPR guidelines, with fines up to 4% of your annual revenue.

As an individual, GDPR guarantees you the right to determine how your data is used.

Brexit

The EU Withdrawal Act retains the GDPR in UK law after we leave the EU. This legislation allows the UK government to make some changes, but the core components will remain intact.

What we do

Every website we design is built with GDPR in mind. 

Privacy Policy

With your help we’ll make sure your Privacy Policy is up-to-date and informative, explaining clearly to your customers how and why you collect their information, as well as detailing their rights and how they can enforce them.

Cookies

The e-Privacy Directive (PECR) works alongside GDPR and the Data Protection Act, outlining specific rights concerning electronic communications. As we build your Privacy Policy, we will include information about the types of cookies your company uses and provide a suitable method for your customers to opt-out of any non-essential data collection in accordance with the PECR.
