GDPR is an abbreviation for General Data Protection Regulation. It was originally a European legislation, introduced to protect individual's personal data and forcing organisations to look introspectively at their processes.
Since the finalisation of Brexit in 2020, the UK has no longer been beholden to EU laws, including GDPR. In order to continue protecting British data, the UK updated the Data Protection Act 2018
(the UK implementation of GDPR) and introduced the UK GDPR, which follows very similar principles to its predecessor, but allows the UK to make changes to the law without EU consent.
Organisations that aren’t in the UK don’t have to comply with these regulations unless they have customers based in the UK. If they do, they must comply with the UK GDPR.
Exciting, right? So how can you ensure your website complies with UK GDPR?
