The following Risk & Compliance practice note provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
This Practice Note is intended for commercial organisations based in the UK. It summarises key features of the UK General Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR). It also provides practical guidance on what you need to do to ensure UK GDPR compliance and signposts relevant tools and Precedents in LexisNexis®.
The challenge of ongoing compliance with the UK GDPR should not be underestimated, nor should the consequences of failing to comply—the potential for fines of £17.5m or 4% of annual global turnover.
The UK GDPR applies to all UK organisations that handle personal data. As it is virtually impossible to operate a business without handling personal data, it's probably safe to assume your organisation is caught by the UK GDPR.
The UK GDPR also applies to organisations outside the UK that offer goods or services to individuals in the UK.
For more guidance, see Practice Note: Introduction to the EU GDPR and UK GDPR—Territorial scope.
The UK GDPR applies to personal data and special category personal data, ie sensitive personal data.
