What is the UK-GDPR?

The United Kingdom General Data Protection Regulation (UK-GDPR) is the UK’s data privacy law that governs the processing of personal data from individuals inside the UK. The UK-GDPR was drafted because of the UK leaving the EU, which resulted in the EU’s GDPR not applying domestically to the UK any longer.

What are the differences between the UK-GDPR and EU’s GDPR?

There are very few substantial differences between the UK-GDPR and its EU equivalent. Essentially, the UK has lifted the entire structure of the EU GDPR and put it in place into UK law. However, the UK-GDPR changes key areas of the law concerning national security, intelligence services and immigration.

Who is liable under the UK-GDPR?

Any website, company or organization that processes personal data from individuals inside the UK is required to comply with the UK-GDPR – even if the website or company isn’t itself located within the UK.

How can my website become compliant with the UK-GDPR?

Using a consent management platform that can scan and detect all cookies, then automatically control them all until the user has given their consent which they will allow activated and process their personal data is a secure way of ensuring compliance with the UK-GDPR and EU-GDPR for your website.
