New General Data Protection Regulations

‘The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force from Friday 25th May 2018.

GDPR introduces new and more stringent rules about personal data, including sharing and storing it. At Howard Cottage we have always taken our residents’ personal data very seriously and we have been busy over the last few months, getting ourselves ready for the new regulations.

We have reviewed what personal data we collect, how we collect it, and our lawful basis for doing so. We have looked closely at how we process personal data and where we store it. And we have modified some of our internal systems and processes, to make sure that we comply with the new privacy regulations.

Visit our website to read our updated privacy statement.

For further information about the new data protection laws please visit the Information Commissioner's Office website

If you have any queries about how we use your personal data, please contact Resident Services Manager Richard Scammell on 01462 683307.
