GDPR data statement
Buzzacott Data Statement in regards to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
Maintaining exemplary levels of data protection has always been at the heart of Buzzacott’s values. We take the protection of your information, and its use, incredibly seriously and already utilise a combination of policy, processes and technology to ensure there are appropriate security and organisational measures in place to protect your data.
While the firm already adheres to the EC Directive and the UK Data Protection Act, the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requires us to review our security measures in place and all processing activity to ensure we are compliant with the GDPR prior to it entering into force on 25 May 2018. Buzzacott are working with accredited external consultants to ensure that the firm meets these enhanced regulations, without disruption to your data accessibility, security and the day-to-day workings of the firm in order to maintain the service you expect.
In the coming months, we may contact you to provide you with any relevant information in terms of how we process your data, including how you can exercise your rights and how you’re able to manage the information you receive from us going forward.
We appreciate that there is much uncertainty surrounding the changes under GDPR, especially with the additional factors of Brexit and the UK Data Protection Bill, which was published in September 2017. However, if you have any questions please speak to your usual Buzzacott contact and we will endeavour to answer your enquiries as comprehensively as possible.
