What is the JDPA?

The Jersey Data Protection Association was formed in July 2017 to help organisations – large to small – to understand, respond and comply with the ever-increasing demands of customers, employees, suppliers and regulators in the field of data protection and privacy.

What is GDPR?

The objective of the GDPR is to bolster and unify data protection across the European Union. GDPR – an abbreviation of the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation – will be enforceable from the 25th May 2018, replacing the Data Protection Act 1998 in the United Kingdom and equivalent legislation across EU Member States.

What am I paying for when I subscribe?
