UK GDPR overview
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a piece of EU legislation adopted into UK Law via the UK Data Protection Act 2018, came into force on Friday 25th May 2018.
Following the UK's withdrawal from the EU on 31 January 2020, the provisions of the EU GDPR have been incorporated directly into UK law as the UK GDPR.
The Party must comply with this legislation in the same way as we need to for Electoral Law. It is vital that Local Party Officers, campaigners and members understand their obligations.
The Party has adopted a set of Members Data Protection Rules that must be followed by all members of the Party. This page covers all rules, guidance and information published. For further information contact [email protected].
