As you may be aware, from 25 May 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will impose greater data protection obligations on organisations whilst giving more rights to individuals in relation to how their personal data is processed. It also requires organisations to provide information about their processing in a clear and transparent way. Personal data is anything that can identify you as a living individual.
We are Bowles and Wyer Ltd, a landscape company, based at Unit 5 Williams Court, Tunnel Way, Pitstone, Nr. Leighton Buzzard, LU7 9GJ.
