Data Protection and GDPR
From 25 May 2018 processing of personal data by organisations had to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation. This new set of rules gives a clear set of rights to everyone in society as well as making clear the responsibilities of organisations which handle or process information about people (or ‘Data Subjects’ as they are known). GDPR applies to ‘Data Contollers’ and ‘Data Processors’.
A ‘Data Controller’ determines the purposes and means of processing personal data.
A ‘Data Processor’ is responsible for processing personal data on behalf of a controller.
Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Primary School is a Data Controller as we collect or generate data about pupils, parents/guardians, staff and visitors. Please read our GDPR related policies on our policies page.
