General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

We are always up-to-date with the latest regulations, including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

What is GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is an EU initiative, which supersedes the 1998 Data Protection Act (DPA) and automatically came into effect on the 25th May 2018.

The previous legislation (DPA) was authorised before new ways of using data by the internet and cloud technology had been realised. The aim of the GDPR is to rectify this by strengthening current data protection laws and through introducing tougher enforcement measures. The main emphasis behind the regulation is to give people back ownership of their data and to improve trust in the digital market.

The GDPR affects any party that controls or processes information, whether it’s a profit seeking company, a charity or a government body. For further information please visit the Information Commissioners Office (ICO), which is the known authority in regards to the GDPR:


SLS is a new and dynamic organisation which started trading at an opportune time, just before the GDPR fully came into effect.

The principals and protocols outlined in the GDPR have been applied wherever necessary and to the best of our knowledge. They have been used as a basis for best practice and integrated into the very design when developing our website, customer relationship management systems and any polices pertaining to data. For more detailed information please refer to our Privacy Policy.
