Our Privacy Policy

Statement

GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation and replaces the previous Data Protection

Directives that were in place. GDPR states that personal data should be ‘processed fairly & lawfully’ and ‘collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes’ and that individuals data is not processed without their knowledge and are only processed with their ‘explicit’ consent. GDPR covers personal data relating to individuals. Watman Worth Web Ltd is committed to protecting the rights and freedoms of individuals with respect to the processing of personal data.

The Data Protection Act gives individuals the right to know what information is held about them. It provides a framework to ensure that personal information is handled properly.

Please read this Privacy Policy carefully and check it intermittently since it may change from time to time.
