General Data Protection Regulations 2018 (GDPR)

What information do we collect?

New regulations, effective from 25th May 2018, enhance the degree of protection that members of the public can expect from all bodies who hold or process data about them, if that data “relates to a living individual who can be identified from it”. This is an evolution of the existing protections set out in the Data Protection Regulations 2016 and before. Further protections apply to “sensitive” personal data.

Nationwide Hire 4 U Ltd is both a data controller and a data processor. We both hold information about you and make use of it, in a variety of ways including the possibility of making decisions about what we do because of information drawn from analysing the data we hold on individuals.
