GDPR – An introduction

Our practical guide to the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) coming into force on 25 May 2018.  This resources gives an overview of the requirements relevant to illustrators.  You may also wish to use the AOI’s Template Privacy Policy here.

This article was written by Silvia Baumgart, Trainee Solicitor at James Ware Stephenson and AOI Board member. It was published on 3 May 2018.

Articles are for general guidance only and discuss the legal position in the UK at the time of publication unless stated otherwise. You must take legal advice and not rely on the information provided in our articles before taking action. 

Please note, following Brexit, the UK will no longer fall under the EU GDPR legislation. Instead it will fall under the UK GDPR legislation.
