This article outlines how Fat Rabbit Video will use your data and your rights under the new general Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which came into force on 25 May 2018.
In the UK, data protection law is currently covered under the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA 1998). However, a new EU data protection law called The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will apply from 25 May 2018. This new law was deemed necessary to take into account technology changes over the last 20 years and to harmonise data protection law across Europe.

Retention of data
One of the key principles of the DPA 1998 and the GDPR is that the personal data we store and process shall be adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary for the purpose it was originally collected. Our standard policy is for information or data to be kept for only as long as necessary. It is then disposed of in a managed and secure way.
Transferring data overseas
Fat Rabbit Video will not share your information with any other organisation.
You will have a number of rights under the GDPR. These include the right to:
- see the information we hold about you:
- request personal data to be amended if it is inaccurate or incomplete;
- request the deletion or removal of personal data where there is no compelling reason for its continued use;
- block or restrict the processing of your personal data; and
- object to the processing of your personal data.
There is also a right under the GDPR to receive your personal data (in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format) and to transfer your data to another service provider or data controller. This right applies where your data is being processed on the basis of your consent or in line with a contract to which you are party.
If you wish to exercise any of your rights or have concerns about the processing of your personal data or wish to raise any issues in relation to data protection, including in relation to the use of it by Fat Rabbit Video, please contact the Data Protection Officer at Fat Rabbit Video.
