The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) enters into force today and updates data protections principles established 20 years ago. The GDPR reinforces the rules by which all organisations and companies providing services in the EU must abide. The GDPR gives us better ways to say what our data can be used for, to retract our consent, to transfer our data or to ask for it to be erased so we can now shop, share and surf with more confidence online.

There is also the very handy “Your Passenger Rights” app – available on Android, iOS (iPhone and iPad) and Windows Phone – for easy access to the right information when you’re in the thick of things. Download here or from your devices app store.
