Have you noticed an increase in the emails and letters that you are receiving from your bank, insurers, lenders and a whole host of others?

The reason is that any organisation that is holding data relating to you must comply with the new regulation, GDPR, which will come into force on the 25th May 2018. In due course, we will publish more detail of some of the changes, including the extended rights of anyone whose data is being held by a third party. In the meantime please do not simply discard the communications that are being sent to you.

They may look a bit dull, but they are likely to contain important information about the way in which your data is received, processed and ultimately destroyed.
