Data Protection Policy
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force on 25 May 2018. It is a new legal framework for data protection and is intended to strengthen and unify data protection for individuals within the European Union (EU). The GDPR replaces the 1998 Data Protection Act and is supported by the UK’s Data Protection Act 2018, which became law on the same date. In addition, the Privacy & Electronic Communications Regulation 2003 (and a new ePrivacy Regulation which will eventually replace it) makes additional rules about direct marketing by phone, email or text. It is Family Futures’ policy to comply with both the spirit and the letter of the law contained in the Act. Read our draft Data Protection Policy.
