Information and guidance: Data Advice for Businesses

Act now to keep receiving personal data from the EU

If your business or organisation receives personal data from partners or suppliers in the EU or EEA countries you must act now to ensure you can still do so legally after Brexit. Personal data is any information that can be used to identify someone, this could include a customer’s name, physical or IP addresses, or HR data such as staff working hours and payroll details. To continue receiving personal data legally after Brexit can be as simple as adding a new clause into your supplier contracts.
