What is GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a European Union directive that will come into force on 25 May 2018. GDPR aims to create stronger, more unified protections of EU citizens’ data and for businesses of all sizes. This means complying with certain rules around consumer data.
Focus7 International Ltd is continuously taking steps towards ensuring full GDPR compliance in line with the recommendations from the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).
Our nominated Data Protection Officer is our Operations Director, Leona Barr-Jones.
