GDPR Deadline Approaches...

Jessica Green - Monday, May 21, 2018

On 25th May 2018 the Data Protection Act (1998) will be replaced by the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). GDPR is being introduced to protect clients by ensuring that their personal information is obtained and handled correctly.

As part of the changes in legislation companies need to be sure they have obtained consent to contact clients if they are individuals rather than businesses. According to the ICO (Information Commissioner’s Office) consent means offering individuals real choice and control.

Genuine consent should put individuals in charge and build customer trust and engagement. The GDPR defines consent as: “Freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous consent; which informs subscribers about the brand that’s collecting the consent and provide information about the purposes of collecting personal data.”

At MPA we take compliance very seriously and the new GDPR legislation complements our existing processes.  We only collect your information in line with relevant regulations and laws and MPA take great pride in ensuring that under no circumstances will your personal information be either sold and/or given to any providers or businesses unless it relates to products and services you are applying for, hold or have held in the past.
