The Data Protection Act 2018 and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force in May 2018. The GDPR only applies to personal information, ie, information about identifiable living individuals and to anyone who processes, stores or is the subject of personal data.
The Good Shepherd Trust takes its responsibility under data protection regulations seriously, ensuring that we meet and comply with our obligations in the use of, processing and holding of personal data. The Trust is registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) for all of our member schools.
