Europe is now covered by the world's strongest data protection rules. The mutually agreed General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force on May 25th, 2018, and was designed to modernise laws that protect the personal information of individuals.

GDPR applies across the entirety of Europe but each individual country has the ability to make its own small changes. In the UK, the government has created a new Data Protection Act (2018) which replaces the 1998 Data Protection Act.

After the UK has left the European Union (Brexit) the UK's Data Protection Act (2018) will superseed the GDPR but both are very similar. They have been drafted to ensure harmony across the EEA.

What rights does the GDPR / Data Protection Act (2018) grant you?
