On the 25th May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force in the UK.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) is a regulation by which the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union and the European Commission intend to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union (EU).

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.

Of course, at Abel Smith, we take data protection very seriously.  In line with GDPR requirements, we have appointed Ms Treasure and Mrs Law as our Data Protection Officer team, to oversee our approach to data management and protection.

In order to ensure that we fully comply with the new regulations, we have reviewed our current policies and practices. We have already updated our privacy notices in line with the new requirements and created an Abel Smith GDPR Policy. These are available to view by clicking on the appropriate links below.
