The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a piece of European Union legislation that aims at ensuring the protection of individuals in relation to the processing of personal data. It legalises the right of every person to control their own personal information and to have it adequately protected by anyone processing and holding it. The GDPR took effect on May 25th 2018. In order to comply with this legislation, parishes will have to be more careful when requested for information by people creating a family tree or to whom a Certificate of Baptism, Confirmation and Marriage are issued. This would either have to be the person needing the Certificate or for persons under 18 years of age, that request could be made by a parent or legal guardian. In instances where people are not known personally by the Data Holder, identification may be needed from the person wishing to obtain it. Your understanding and co-operation in these matters would be greatly appreciated.
