Processing personal data from the EU

If you are a business or organisation and receive personal data from partners or suppliers in EU or EEA countries they must act now to ensure they can still do so legally after Brexit. Personal data is any information that can be used to identify someone, this could include a customer’s name, physical or IP addresses, or HR data such as staff working hours and payroll details. To continue receiving personal data legally after Brexit, review your supplier contracts and read this guidance: www.gov.uk/guidance/using-personal-data-after-brexit
