GDPR

GDPR

The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) was introduced in 2018. The aim is to increase the protection of citizen’s data.

It did this by changing the way that organisations manage your data:

  • It standardised data protection laws
  • It made it easier for you to understand why and how your data is being used
  • It enforced stricter guidelines on how organisations manage the data they collect

The biggest change with GDPR is the change in your rights and giving you better access to the data that organisations hold about you.

Sandwell Connexions, acting on behalf of the Local Authority, has a legal responsibility under the Education & Skills Act 2008 to encourage, enable or assist the effective participation of young people into education or training. In order to achieve this, certain information needs to be collected from you to ensure that you receive the support you need in order to make the best choice for you.
