DATA PROTECTION

1. GDPR - EU General Data Protection Regulation
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), is an article of legislation passed by the EU. Should the UK exit the union the UK will still be subject to the provisions of the GDPR. The GDPR to a large extent supersedes the provision of the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA), by virtue of being more thorough and up to date in regard to the subject matter of the DPA and by being far reaching in that the DPA only covered personal information under restricted circumstances whereas the GDPR covers "ALL" personal information. This GDPR policy is specific to and limited to our website, and is therefore limited in it’s scope for our viewers ease of reference. Our business is committed to being GDPR compliant. Prior to the deadline for compliance with the GDPR, subjects may initiate a subject access request under either the DPA or under GDPR.
