You may have recently come across the initials ‘GDPR’ and wondered what they meant.
GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation and it becomes law on 25 May 2018.
Basically it protects you by controlling the way business and public sector organisations handle their customer information.
It gives consumers new rights to access the information companies hold about them, obligations for better data management by businesses and large fines if businesses do not comply.
We think it is a really positive step towards you having more control over how your data is used and how you’re contacted. The changes will also help to protect your personal data better. We have updated our privacy notice to reflect these changes, which you can find here.
What we’re doing
We always try to act in the most responsible way possible and to this end we take our customer’s digital privacy very seriously.
So we are doing everything we can to be GDPR compliant.
Our stylists work with hundreds of clients and retain lots of client data, Head Office have worked hard to ensure that we are up to speed on GDPR. To make everything clear we have written comprehensive How To guides to ensure that all of our stylists are working towards being compliant, well ahead of 25th May when GDPR will come into force.
We occasionally send updates about our products, services, offers and latest news to make sure you are on top of what’s happening in the world of weddings and events!
