Tower Hamlets EBP today publishes our updated Data Protection Policy.
The new policy has been refreshed in line with new data protection legislation and outlines how we handle any data shared with or collected by Tower Hamlets EBP.
The General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR is a piece of EU legislation which will come into UK law on Friday 25th May 2018 with the passing of the Data Protection Bill.
The new legislation gives individuals greater control over what their data is used for, and the right to know what data is held on them.
Individuals also have the right to request a copy of the data held on them, or to request their data be corrected or deleted. Organisations are required to respond within one calendar month.
Tower Hamlets EBP is committed to compliance with the new legislation and is taking steps to ensure we are holding and processing our volunteers, beneficiaries, and partners’ data safely and securely.
