It is likely you will have heard by now about the new EU General Data Protection Regulations, GDPR.
What is GDPR?
Since 25th May 2018, it has been a legal requirement that website users must be made aware of what data site owners collect, how it is used and to make them aware that they have the right to access their data, and have their data deleted on request.
