The Data Protection Act is the UK’s implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which came into force in May 2018.
The objective was to harmonise the data protection law framework across the EU. GDPR imposes obligations on companies that control or process personal data.
Select Lifestyles have implemented appropriate technical and security processes to ensure that we comply with the obligations. Alongside Synium, Select Lifestyles are actively working towards the Cyber Essentials accreditation and are on track to achieve this by the end of 2019.
Working closely with Synium IT over the past few years, we have taken various steps toward achieving company-wide high standards that ensure all our data and the data we handle is kept safe.
Our Synium IT Support plan includes a data protection compliance review, which aims to ensure that our data acquisition, management and security policies and processes conform to the regulations.
