The General data Protection Regulations came into force on 25 May 2018. These regulations are designed to complement the provisions of the Data Protection Act 1998 and enhance the rights of individuals to privacy where their personal information is processed. The regulations apply to all organisations including the NUM and the Union has updated its policies and procedures to implement the changes and ensure that we deal with your personal data in accordance with the legislation. In particular the Union has revised its privacy notice to explain its responsibilities to you and also the type of personal information collected, how it is used and how it is protected.
