GDPR For Small Businesses
2/4/2019 10:30:53 AM by Adam Brogden
If you are a micro-company, sole-trader, or even if you just work from home, GDPR will probably still apply to you! If you collect, store or process any sort of personal data, then you need to understand the regulations and ensure you register with the ICO.

We want to help ensure you are GDPR compliant. Absolutely number one item on your list of things to do is to make sure you have a Privacy Statement. This is fundamental to GDPR compliance and you would have absolutely no defence against a complaint or ICO investigation if you don't have one.
