Data protection & GDPR

Category Banner Image

The rules on data protection have now changed. The Data Protection Act 1998 has been replaced by the Data Protection Act 2018, which incorporates the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This section includes guidance materials and documents for small business owners to raise awareness on the changes and to bring you up to speed on the latest developments.

*The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) regularly provides updates to their guidance around the data protection rules. We will update our documents accordingly, so please ensure that you are using the most up-to-date version of our documents.  

The content on the Markel Law Hub has been prepared by Markel Law LLP and it’s specified partners. It’s intended as guidance only and not to be regarded as a substitute for consultation with one of our solicitors or experts, since every case will ultimately turn on its own particular facts and circumstances. We recommend that you use our materials as your starting point and be aware that you sometimes have to follow a set procedure before taking any action, especially in an employment context. If you are in any doubt, we’d suggest that you get in touch with us and we’ll talk you through your options on how to get the right legal advice.
