GDPR – we can help you comply with the new rules
When does the GDPR take effect?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force on 25 May 2018.
What is the GDPR?
The GDPR will change the law surrounding data protection and will affect the way you, as a letting agent or landlord, process personal data and you do need to be compliant with the rules as of 25 May 2018. The regulation is geared towards giving back the person, whose data you are processing, the power of controlling what is done with their personal information.
