General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The updated data protection legislation which replaced the Data Protection Act 1998.

It’s a European Union regulation which 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 in the European Union.

B&CE, provider of The People’s Pension, already makes sure that data protection is central to our business. Under GDPR, we’re more transparent about how we collect, use, share and store our customers’ (and employees’) data.

GDPR came into force on 25 May 2018.
