Your personal information

The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) came into effect from 25 May 2018. They strengthen data protection, and apply to private and public organisations.

The Commission has always been very careful in handling personal information. But the new regulations prompted us to explain more about how we handle personal information.

Watch our film on how we manage personal data, and find out about our policies in more detail by following the links below. You can also ask if we hold any information about you and, if so, request a copy.
