GDPR Data Protection Regulations

The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) come into force within the European Union on 25th May 2018; this legislation makes significant changes to the way organisations process and retain personal data relating to individuals. 

The GDPR creates an enhanced regulatory regime and provides data protection supervisory authorities with the powers to impose significant administrative fines for non-compliance.

Mablethorpe & Sutton Town Council recognises the importance of compliant processing and retaining of personal data consistently and legally, within the boundaries as a ‘corporate body’ to ensure it remains fair and respectful to individuals. 

Holton Le Clay Parish Council has adopted the following policies and procedural documents to ensure compliance with GDPR Responsibilities:

- Data Protection Policy

- Data Breach Policy

- Data Retention and Disposal Policy

Holton Le Clay will be issuing Security Compliance Checklists for Councillors and Staff Members and is registered as a Data Controller with the Information Commissioners Office.
