On your marks, Get set, GDPR

Data protection is changing within the EU and we have been working hard behind the scenes to make sure we abide by the new laws coming in to place on 25th May 2018.

 

So what does it mean?

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and was designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens data privacy and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy

Basically GDPR will change the way in which we keep and use information about anyone who uses or interacts with us as a company. This will increase the safety of your information and will see companies and organisations doing more to allow that to happen.

 

What will you be changing?

As a company we will be issuing new documentation to all social workers, clients and anyone who interacts with us as a company to make sure we do all that we can to keep to the revised laws.

 

I haven’t heard anything from Breaking The Cycle?

If you haven’t heard from us by the end of June then it is probably because we do not hold enough information about you to make any changes but by all means contact us if you have any worries.
