Data Protection Legislation
Even though the UK left the EU, the GDPR is still applicable in the UK. The Government intends for the GDPR to continue in UK law post Brexit and has therefore enforced the Data Protection Act 2018 and UK GDPR. (a) Data Protection Act 2018 and UK GDPR; (b) the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679; (c) the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003 (as may be amended by the proposed Regulation on Privacy and Electronic Communications); and (d) any legislation that replaces or converts into United Kingdom law, UK GDPR, the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679, the proposed Regulation on Privacy and Electronic Communications or any other law relating to data protection, and the processing of personal data and privacy resulting from the United Kingdom leaving the European Union. The Regulation aims to harmonise data protection legislation across the UK and EU member states, enhancing privacy rights for individuals and providing a strict framework within which commercial organisations can legally operate.
