    Overview of GDPR

    Information on GDPR and obtaining consent in RMS.

    The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a regulation in European Union (EU) law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the EU. GDPR replaces the Data Protection Act of 1998 and aims to simplify the regulatory environment by unifying regulation within the EU.

    GDPR applies to any organisation that conducts business with citizens of the European Union and European Economic Area (EA), providing two key areas for compliance.
