General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)

In May 2018 new rules called the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), came into force concerning how personal data is handled and how consent is given. These regulations do not change how the River Gipping Trust (RGT) currently stores, handles or uses your data.

This page defines the River Gipping Trust policy regarding the GDPR. The information below states how your data is used and how long it will be retained;
