Data protection

Perfect. Here's how LHS elXtr can help you

Great. Nearly there. What sort of data protection information are you looking for? Banner Image

We can keep this simple for you. If you already know that you need to comply with data protection rules, then we’ll support you through the practical steps of considering your business operations (or your activities if you’re an individual), how the legal obligations affect them and what works best commercially and legally in terms of demonstrating compliance.

Our information and documentation here enables you to understand what you need to do to comply with data protection provisions, including dealing with subject access requests. There’s also general guidance on monitoring employees at work.

The rules on data protection are changing in May 2018. The current Data Protection Act 1998 will be replaced by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). In this section includes guidance materials and documents for small business owners to raise awareness on the changes and to bring you up to speed on the latest developments.

The content on elXtr has been prepared by LHS Solicitors. It’s intended as guidance only and not to be regarded as a substitute for consultation with one of our solicitors, since every case will ultimately turn on its own particular facts and circumstances. We recommend that you use our materials as your starting point and be aware that you sometimes have to follow a set procedure before taking any action, especially in an employment context. If you are in any doubt, we’d suggest that you get in touch with us and we’ll talk you through your options on how to get the right legal advice.
