The Data Protection Act 2018 and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) gives people better control over what businesses and organisations can do with their data. It also makes data protection laws identical across all EU countries, including the UK now and after Brexit, making things clearer and simpler for everyone. It applies to “controllers” and “processors” of data, which covers every organisation that handles people’s personal data at some point, whether it’s the data of customers, suppliers, the public or staff.  It’s therefore important that we as an organisation are compliant, and that all staff understand the implications of the new legislation.

SCW acts as a Processor for our customers, who are also legally required to publish their own Privacy Notices. Where SCW is the Processor for organisations that are also a Controller, you will see us named in their Fair Processing Notice for the services we provide.
