At Morton Fraser we have highlighted clarity as our guiding principle.
This directs the way we communicate, the way we advise, the way we conduct relationships with our clients and the way we are totally transparent and upfront about our charges. This applies to all our services from the straightforward to the more complex.
The new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is due to come into force on 25 May 2018 and will replace the Data Protection Act.
It brings the biggest overhaul of data protection legislation for over 25 years, and will introduce new requirements for how organisations, including charitable organisations, process personal data. In effect, it will provide individuals with more control over their personal data and will require organisations to process their data responsibly and more transparently.
For further information, please see our recent article here or visit our dedicated GDPR page.
