GDPR & DPA18 Exemptions

GDPR ExemptionsThe ICO have expanded their data protection guidance on exemptions, which looks at some of the rights and obligations under the GDPR and DPA18. The ICO note that any exemption should not simply be routinely relied upon; instead, every event should be reviewed and considered on a case-by-case basis. They also reiterate that some areas such as using personal data for domestic purposes; processing personal data for reasons of law enforcement and cases of national security are not considered exemptions, because they are not covered by the GDPR. You can read the full guidelines and new expanded areas over on the ICO website.
