Posted by on Jan 29, 2018 in Cloud, TermSet | 0 comments

Come May of this year we will see the introduction of GDPR in the UK. Arguably one of the most significant pieces of legislation to affect all businesses, schools and public services in many years.  Judging by the sheer volume of material out there at the moment many organisations like AspiraCloud are working out what that means for us and our clients. One of the fundamental strands of GDPR is your right to be forgotten and your right for full disclosure of any data an organisation may hold on you, know as a Subject Access Request.
