General Data Protection
On the 25th May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) come into force in the UK. These are new data protection regulations that build upon the Data Protection Act of 1998.
The GDPR require public authorities and businesses to identify the lawful basis for storing personal data, audit information we already hold and take a 'data protection by design and default' approach to personal data.
We take data protection very seriously at Bowes. In line with GDPR requirements Enfield Learning Trust have already appointed a Data Protection Officer, Ann Smith to oversee our approach to data management and protection.
In order to ensure that we comply with the new regulations, we are reviewing our current policies and practices. We have already updated our privacy notices in line with the new requirements.
