I was unemployed for quite a while and received advice from the Job center but I've never heard of GDPR until today. I've only just went self employed, I am a sole trader and currently work from home, I do take Names and addresses of customers (for postage only) but not bank details or any other personal information. would these new rules be something I would need to read through and print off? or are the new rules for large companies? I don't seem to fit into any descriptions of your drop down link so I chose the last one :( I've looked at the GDPR requirements and they're so confusing I thought it best to ask a professional.
If you are processing personal data of individuals you would be subject to the EU GDPR so you should provide them the proper Privacy Notices and ensure that you can comply with their requests. Unfortunately, there are only small exceptions which apply to small companies such as not maintaining “record of processing activities” pursuant to article 30 of the EU GDPR – “Records of processing activities” ht tps://advisera.com/eugdpracademy/gdpr/records-of-processing-activities/
