Be Aware

Ignorance of the law will not be an excuse.

In February 2019 a housing developer was taken to court for failing to respond to a Subject Access Request.

The fines for this prosecution were set under the Data Protection Act 1998 which were much more lenient than they are now under GDPR.

There is now a potential to receive a fine of up to 4% of your annual turnover.

If they fail to do so then they must accept the consequences, which can include a criminal prosecution.”
