The increasing use of data by businesses involves a delicate balance with the competing rights and interests of individuals. On the one hand, data opens up countless opportunities for businesses to grow. On the other hand, individuals have the right to have their personal data protected. Businesses must also ensure that their use of data complies with a wide range of legislation and regulatory guidance, including the General Data Protection Regulation ('GDPR') and the Data Protection Act 2018. These recent regulatory developments are complex, which can lead to confusion about how data should be processed in compliance with the law.
