The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applies in the UK from 25th May 2018. It is a piece of EU-wide legislation which determines how people’s personal data is processed and kept safe.
It gives stronger rights for individuals regarding their own data, including:
- How it is used,
- Accessing their data,
- Rectifying incorrect information,
- Erasing data,
- Restricting or objecting to use of their data.
At Hollesley Primary School we have produced Privacy Notice for pupils and staff. These notices advise the individual:
- why we collect data
- what we will use the data for, and
- what we will not use the data for.
