Data Protection in Camden - your rights

Introduction

The law on data protection changed in 2018. The old Data Protection Act 1998 was repealed and new laws came into force.  These are the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA) and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).  

The GDPR is the EU Regulation which applies across the whole of Europe. The UK has brought this into UK law through the DPA. This means that the new data protection rules will not be affected by Brexit. 

Personal Data 

The new data protection laws made some changes to the way all organisations, including Camden, handle information about people.  The new law applies only to ‘personal data’.  

Find out more about personal data here and about the new laws on the Information Commissioner’s website.
