What is data protection?
Simply put, data protection is about guarding people from the misuse of their personal information, by creating legal responsibility for keeping that information held as securely as possible.
The General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR is the first major overhaul of data protection in the UK for 20 years. Its purpose is to:
- Give data subjects more rights to their information
- Create more transparency surrounding how organisations and companies use the data they hold
- Ensure that any organisation which collects, handles or shares personal data, does so with a clear and lawful purpose
They [ClearComm] have made the new data protection rules work for us and in our particular circumstances, this has enabled us to grow our business and work with more charities knowing that we are compliant.
