Data Protection Act (DPA) and UK General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The GDPR was adopted into British law after the UK left the European Union. The DPA and UK GDPR governs how your personal information is used and safeguarded by organisations and government agencies. The act states that your information can only be used ‘fairly, lawfully and transparently’ and for specified purposes, and should not be kept longer than necessary. It must also be securely protected against unauthorised use or theft. The regulations also allows you to find out what information is being stored about you, how it is being used – and to have incorrect information updated or deleted.
