EU Transition data protection partnership pack
The government has produced a partnership pack to support communication with businesses about ensuring personal data can continue to flow lawfully.
Personal data is any information that can be used to identify a living person. This type of information is regularly used in the daily running of most businesses and organisations, and can be anything from names and addresses, to payroll data.
The partnership pack includes key messages to be used on your website and in communications and creative content for social media, websites, newsletters and blogs.
