In May 2018, Jersey introduced Data Protection Law with equivalent principles to the European General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).
The Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2018 brings equivalence to the principles of the GDPR. This means that individuals privacy rights will be strengthened and your information will be safer.
The States of Jersey takes the security and privacy of your information very seriously and has implemented various measures to ensure best standards are met, including:
- in depth training for staff
- appointment of Corporate Data Protection Officer (CDPO)
- establishment of States wide programme board
- movement of Data Protection to corporate function
