The Data Protection Regulations in the UK include two key pieces of law:
- The Data Protection Act 2018
- The UK GDPR which was adapted from the EU version at Brexit and now applies to processing for people based in the UK
There are other regulations in specific areas which need to be taken into account. This Privacy Notice has been written within the legislative framework as at July 2020. It will be revised as the framework and case law change.
