The Data Protection Act 2018 is the UK’s implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
GDPR replaces both the EU’s Data Protection Directive (95/46/EC) and the UK’s Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA).
GDPR controls how personal information is used by organisations, businesses or the Government.
