Changes to privacy laws give you more rights and greater protection.
On these pages, we highlight the key points and explain them in simple terms. To do that we've provided short articles that explain some of the issues that affect you, or may be a concern. You'll also find our full Privacy Notice, which includes details of how to contact us about the personal information we hold for you.
