The General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individual citizens. This is brought into UK and Scots Law through The Data Protection Act 2018. The new Act brings the GDPR requirements into UK law and extends it to cover legal areas for which the EU does not have oversight. It will remain in force even after the UK leaves the EU. This Act will bring in stricter standards for when and how organisations, including charities, can contact people or process and store their data than are currently required under the Data Protection Act 1998.
