General Data Protection Regulation
The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was introduced to unify all EU member states' approaches to data regulation, ensuring all data protection laws are applied identically in every country within the EU. It will protect EU citizens from organisations using their data irresponsibly and puts them in charge of what information is shared, where and how it's shared.
The GDPR came into force on 25th May 2018 - and even though the UK is due to leave the EU in the next 12 months, it will still apply to all businesses handling EU residents' data, effectively replacing the Data Protection Act 1998. The regulations apply to all schools.
