Data Protection

 What is GDPR?

 The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is an EU wide law designed to strengthen the data rights of EU citizens and provide them with a greater level of control over their personal data. It applies to all organisations that collect or process personal data about EU citizens. This sits alongside the Data Protection Act 2018, which replaced the previous Data Protection Act 1998.

Harlowbury Primary School has a Data Protection Officer whose role it is to ensure that any personal information processed by the Organisation is processed fairly and lawfully (respecting your rights and ensuring we follow the law). If you have any concerns or questions regarding how we look after your personal information, please contact the Data Protection Officer Lauri Almond, at igs@essex.gov.uk or by calling 0333 032 2970.
