On 25th May 2018 new legislation on Data Protection comes into force (The General Data Protection Regulation - “GDPR”). GDPR replaces previous legislation and contains significant obligations which Walpole Residents' Association (WRA - The Association) must fulfil and numerous rights which Members and Visitors have vis-à-vis the Association. Many of the Rules are the same as under previous legislation but there are a number of new elements. GDPR is an EU Directive directly applicable in all Member States without the need for local legislation; the UK has decided that it requires the content of GDPR to apply after the UK leaves the EU and has tabled a Bill in the House of Lords which will achieve this objective.
