Getting ready for GDPR

What is GDPR?

You may have received a number of emails from different companies asking you to update your details or sign up to a newsletter. Why is this? The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) comes into effect on the 25th May this year. The regulations expand on the Data Protection Act, strengthening the protection of individuals’ personal data.

What does this mean for Acorn Ecology?

We want to make sure we are only contacting people who want to hear from us.

Acorn Ecology sends out a newsletter to all our current and past clients 4 times a year. We use our newsletter to inform you of any legal or policy changes to wildlife laws and legislation, remind you of the survey season starting and let you know what you need to do to avoid delays to your project.

Keep receiving Eco-Planning Newsletters!

If you wish to keep receiving our newsletter after 25th May 2018, you need to sign up online. It only takes a few seconds.

We use our newsletter to provide you with details of all the latest ecology news, including:

  • Case studies
  • Information about ecological surveys, including timing and seasonality
  • Updates to Law and Regulations you need to know about
  • Acorn Ecology news
  • Useful reminders about when to commission your ecological surveys
  • Training courses and CPD opportunities
