On 11 May, an article from Field Fisher sets out to debunk 5 common misconceptions about UK and EU data protection law –

I am a data processor because that’s what it says in my contract; We’ve removed the individual’s name and assigned them a number instead – we don’t know who they are anymore so this isn’t personal data; I’m not processing personal data; I’m just deleting it; I can’t be a controller of that database because I don’t have access to it; and Data protection law is completely harmonised across the EU after GDPR.
