    Data protection and GDPR changes?

    I will be interviewing Laura McLoughney on the 28th of Dec. Laura worked in the NHS (operational and data management role) plus was the head of operations for Deliveroo. These days she works with her husband, an architect, as they build their real estate investment business. For her sins, she enjoys picking apart regulations which involve data protection.

    If you want to listen in, register at the link. If you can not make it, no problem. You can submit questions or catch up later with the recording. There is no cost.

    One thing which has already been put on the question list is data protection for 'private, online' conversations.

    GDPR requires that a person can submit queries to find out what data is being held which is attributable to them personally. How far does that requirement go when two or more people are using an online service to chat (WhatsApp, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc)? If the two people are talking about a third person and the third-party is identified by name or similar specific details, the info must be disclosed when challenged. Who owns the disclosure if two or more people were involved in the conversation? Is it the cloud provider (Facebook, WhatsApp, etc), the person who started the group conversation or all the individuals who took part in the conversation?

    I am using the webinar functionality provided by Zoom. This means none of the audience will be on camera as this is not a Zoom 'meeting'. The format will be Laura being interviewed by me with the crowd providing the questions.

    My personal take: The legislation becomes effective in May of 2018. It will impact all landlords, investors, and others in our property sector if we process information on various people we do business with. Exactly what that means is for Laura to clarify. Note that I said process rather than hold. GDPR defines the process and makes the point that processing is not the same as holding. Not exactly sure of the nuances.

    It would be interesting to know how the Act and any changes impact on obligations created by Right to Rent legislation.
