The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) 2018 aims to protect the personal data of every citizen. An individual is given increased rights over the data that an organisation holds on them. The main points are:
A person can request to see all the details (data) held about them
Consent is needed before the gathering of such data and reasons given for its collection
Individuals can request the deletion of all personal data held by an organisation
Precautions need to be taken by the organisation to protect the personal data once gathered
Sevenhampton Parish Council has an Information and Data Protection Policy which addresses these issues.
