The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

This a new legal framework for the protection of personal data being implemented in the UK from 25 May 2018. It is the biggest change in data protection law in 20 years and provides new rules, rights and obligations relating to the management and use of personal data.

What is Personal Data?

Rattlesden Parish Council is committed to keeping your personal information private and secure.

Privacy Notice?

The Council needs to tell you what it does with your information and how it provides for the safe handling of your data. To do that, it has issued a Privacy Notice which you are strongly encouraged to read.

The Privacy Notice provides details about when and why the Council collects your personal information, how it is used, the limited conditions under which it may be disclosed to others and how it is kept safe. It also tells you about your rights and how to exercise them.

Important - do take the time to look at the Privacy Noticeā€¦
