As from the 25th May 2018 GDPR regulations are in place to provide a set of standardised data protection laws across EU member states.
This affects every business that collects any personal information through any medium, be it online or otherwise, and gives each and every one of us more control over what companies do with our data by way of consent and restricts the use of your data for marketing purposes amongst other things.
To get a full scope of the law if you are not familiar with it I suggest you read up on GDPR on the ICO website (ico.org.uk) especially if you have not heard of GDPR and you are processing personal information in some form.
As a result of these new laws many businesses have revised their internal processes to comply with GDPR and have updated privacy policies and contracts in order to make clients aware of their rights and how the data is used.
Due to the nature of some of the services I provide I will be requiring some clients to sign a Data Processing agreement in order to continue providing certain services to you. The terms of business between myself and clients will remain the same as I do not collect, process or use any data beyond the scope of what it is provided for, nor do I sell any information provided to me or use it for marketing. Any communications between clients and myself falls under the category of 'legitimate interest’. Any data that is processed by me is used solely to provide the service requested by each individual client and is retained long enough to provide the service and to fulfil my legal obligations. A full and complete statement of what data I collect and how it is used by me in order to fulfil my obligations to my clients is available on request.
