Data Protection & GDPR Lawyers in St Helens
Data protection is a complex area of law, and is becoming more and more prominent with the rapid growth of technology.
The ways in which data is dealt with and stored are fundamentally changing in light of this, making it more important than ever to ensure that personal data is being properly protected.
Anyone dealing with personal data must be in compliance with data protection law. The General Data Protection Regulations, introduced in 2018, have had a significant impact on the law of data protection, imposing much more stringent requirements to comply with when dealing with personal data. Large penalties can also be imposed for breach of the GDPR, of up £18 million or 4% of annual global turnover, whichever is higher.
This means that businesses must ensure that they are aware of what the rules are and how to comply with them in practice. It also means that individuals whose personal data has been misused can now bring a claim with greater ease and higher remedies.
