It’s a European Union regulation which came into force on 25 May 2018. The regulation (which is supported in the UK through the Data Protection Act 2018) aims to give people more control over how their personal data is collected, used, stored and shared. It’s designed to strengthen and unify the data security measures of businesses.
B&CE, provider of The People’s Pension, already makes sure that data protection is central to our business. Under GDPR and the Data Protection Act 1998, we’re more transparent about how we collect, use, share and store our customers’ (and employees’) data.
