Principles of GDPR 2018

Data Cleansing and data processing are affected by GDPR or the General Data Protection Regulation. GDPR is an EU directive. It was written into British law under the Data Protection Act, 2018.

The data cleansing company you choose should provide you with a contract and ‘sufficient guarantees’. Data must also be processed within GDPR compliance framework.

At the heart of this regulation is accurate data. Although this is not definitive under GDPR, the Data Protection Act 2018 does define inaccurate as “incorrect or misleading as to any matter of fact”.

GDPR, Data Protection and your business

Firstly, If you process or control personal data for your customers you will have to abide by GDPR.

Also, Individuals have the right be informed about the use of their personal data, right to rectify incorrect information and the right to be removed from your dataset.

What does this mean?

In the event that an individual requests to know what data you hold for them, you are legally obliged to inform them. It is their personal data

With this in mind it is important your data is up-to-date, clean and that accurate records are kept.
