The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is one of the biggest changes to UK data privacy law, taking effect from Friday 25th May 2018.  It gives individuals much more control on what personal data is stored and gives them power to have it corrected or deleted.

SHAP’s new GDPR policy does not change the way we manage and store your personal data but it does clarify what we can do with it.  The attached Privacy Policy Statement explains how we manage data, what rights individuals have about the data we store and the reasons we are allowed to store data.
