General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
On the 25th May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) updated Data Protection legislation in order to modernise laws that protect personal data and formed parts of the new Data Protection Act 2018.
The GDPR requires public authorities and businesses to identify the lawful basis for storing personal data, audit information we already hold and take a ‘secure by design’ approach to personal data.
It also introduces new individual rights relating to personal data, such as the right to erasure or the right to rectification.
This means, amongst other things, that the data held about you must only be used for specific purpose allowed by law. We are therefore writing to tell you about the types of data held, why that data is held and with whom it may be shared.
How to find out more
Our Privacy Notices were updated with effect from the 25th May 2018 and you can view a copy of it at www.cmatrust.co.uk/gdpr, pick up a copy at any of our academy receptions or you can ask us to post a copy to you.
