New data protection legislation came into force on 25th May 2018. It aims to protect the privacy of all EU citizens and prevent data breaches. It applies to any public or private organisation processing personal data and brings new obligations on data controllers and data processors.

Established key principles of data privacy remain relevant in the new Data Protection Legislation but there are also a number of changes that will affect commercial arrangements, both new and existing. The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) specifies that any processing of personal data by a Processor, should be governed by a Contract with certain provisions included.
