THE GDPR AND DATA PROTECTION/PRIVACY POLICY

Introduction

The EU General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR”) came into force across the European Union on 25thMay 2018 and brings with it the most significant changes to data protection law in two decades. Based on privacy by design and taking a risk-based approach, the GDPR has been designed to meet the requirements of the digital age. It has been implemented by the Data Protection Act 2018.
 

The 21stCentury brings with it broader use of technology, new definitions of what constitutes personal data, and a vast increase in cross-border processing. The new Regulation aims to standardise data protection laws and processing across the EU; affording individuals stronger, more consistent rights to access and control their personal information.

Duggan Press Limited is committed to ensuring the security and protection of the personal information that we process, and to provide a compliant and consistent approach to data protection. We recognise our obligations in meeting the demands of the GDPR and the DPA 2018.

Our preparation and objectives for GDPR compliance have been summarised in this statement and include the development and implementation of data protection roles, policies, procedures, controls and measures to ensure maximum and ongoing compliance as necessary.
