GDPR – how will retailers be affected?

Mike Harris Mike Harris

This manual has been developed by Retail Excellence in association with Grant Thornton to provide retailers with an overview of the key changes from the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which will come into effect in May 2018.

We have created a specific retail-focused manual that will ensure Irish retailers are aware of the upcoming changes allowing them to ensure they are compliant with the new Regulation.

It is crucial that retailers have a secure operation in place when handling all customer data to ensure information is only used for its intended purpose. The manual also includes an appendix with commentary and viewpoints from the Data Protection Commission, Ecommerce Europe and the European Consumer Centre on the changes
that the GDPR will bring.
