The General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) comes into force on 25th May 2018. The new regulation aims to standardise data protection laws and processing across the EU, enabling individuals a stronger, more consistent right to access and control their personal information. The purpose of this notice is to make you aware of how we will handle your personal data.
With the UK leaving the EU, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been retained in UK law and will continue to be read alongside the Data Protection Act 2018, with technical amendments to ensure it can function in UK law. The Information Commissioner remains the UK’s independent supervisory authority on data protection. The UK remains committed to high data protection standards.
EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement interim bridging mechanism for personal data
The UK regained full autonomy over its data protection rules from 1 January 2021. The EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement bridging mechanism for personal data (Part Seven, Article FINPROV.10A) operates on the basis of UK law, as it stands on 1 January, and with some restrictions on the UK’s use of international data transfer powers.
The provision includes mechanisms to enable the UK to make changes to its data protection regime or exercise international transfer powers, subject to mutual agreement, without affecting the bridging mechanism. The EU does not have the power to block changes to its framework or use of its powers. If the EU objects to changes, and the UK anyway makes them, the bridge will end.
