From May 2018 Europe’s data protection rules has undergone their biggest changes in two decades. Since they were created in the 1990s, the amount of digital information we create, capture, and store has vastly increased. Simply put, the old regime was no longer fit for purpose.
The solution is the mutually agreed European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which came into force on May 25th, 2018 and become part of the Law. It changes how businesses and public-sector organisations can handle the information of customers.
GDPR means that we at Eastbourne gentle dental are more accountable for handling of people’s personal information and as such we have updated our data protection policies.
