Deep dive: UK GDPR and Research

UK GDPR provides specific provisions to assist the use of personal data in research, but it’s not a get out of jail free card – you have to take account of people’s rights, and consider minimisation and pseudonymisation.

The Data Protection Act contains a potentially powerful exemption for research in the public interest – but when can you use it? When is it appropriate to conduct research without telling people? This practical and no-nonsense course will help researchers and DPOs alike to work out when the GDPR applies in full, and when it might be relaxed.
