On May 25, 2018, the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into affect.

This new law expands the privacy rights granted to individuals, and gives you greater control over the data held about you. We would like to continue providing you with information on relevant products, industry news and developments in technology that we believe would benefit your business. We will always try to make any communications that we send you useful and of interest and are asking that you tell us how you would like to receive these. Remember, you can change your mind or opt out at any time.

Thanks to the technical revolution brought on by the internet, mobile technology and social networks, the amount of personal data being generated is rapidly increasing. Every time you sign into a website, shop online or use your favourite app you add to this "mountain" of data. This is why the law needs updating, to better protect you the individual. As part of the General Data Protection Regulation all companies have to review how they manage and use any personal data that they hold - and ensure they are GDPR compliant by 25th May 2018.

If you give an organisation permission to contact you, it doesn't mean you can't change your mind in the future. Under the new rules, it should be easier to update your preferences on what you want to receive and how, or choose to stop receiving information from that organisation altogether.

GDPR is about giving the individual more control on how their personal data is used. You will have greater visibility, and control over what personal data organisations hold about you - whether it is as simple as your name, or as complex and sensitive as medical information. All this means that you can have greater confidence that information about you is accurate, up to date and being properly managed.

You get to choose who contacts you and by what methods they are allowed to do so, for example by email, telephone, or writing.

GDPR also aims to make sure that all organisations holding personal data have the right processes in place to protect it. Organisations that fail to apply proper data security and data privacy processes, putting personal data at risk will face large penalties.
