Data Protection


Padlock on a gateGeneral Data Protection Regulation

The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) came into effect in the UK in May 2018. GDPR updated the existing law on data protection (the Data Protection Act 1998) and gives individuals more rights and protection in how their personal data is used by organisations. Parishes must comply with its requirements, just like any other charity or organisation.

For data protection enquiries and advice, please contact Data Protection Officer Anna Drew (01227 459401).

For queries relating to occasional offices and legal requirements, contact The General Register Office for England and Wales (03001231837).
