The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679
This regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union comes into force on 25 May 2018. It also addresses the export of personal data outside the EU. The GDPR aims primarily to give control to citizens and residents over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU.
According to the UK ico. (Information Commissioner’s Office) “The GDPR applies to ‘personal data’ meaning any information relating to an identifiable person who can be directly or indirectly identified…”
As at 17 May 2018, Oakwood Church is in course of re-approaching each individual whose ‘personal data’ are published on www.oakwoodchurch.info so that we can document evidence that each really has given their informed Consent to be identified.
