What is GDPR?

GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulations which comes into force on 25 May 2018.

A brief summary of the scope of this legislation, which is not to be interpreted as an authoritative statement of this law, is described below:

  • The legal rights of the individual whose data is held and processed by the Commissioners.
  • Establishes the legal obligations placed on the Commissioners for the collection and retention of personal data.
  • Establishes the legal obligations placed on the Commissioners when processing personal data.
  • Establishes enforcement procedures to ensure compliance with this legislation and puts in place sanctions and penalties for public authorities or bodies who breach or break this law.

Many of the provisions contained within this new legislation were previously included within the Data Protection Act 2002 which was applicable to the Commissioners.

How do I request information?

You can make a request to find out what information the Commissioners hold about you by writing or emailing the Commissioners’ Data Protection Officer using the information contained in the Data Privacy Notice (see below).
