Recording what we've learnt
First and foremost this site contains the results of our research to date into the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We've been to seminars, spoken to the Information Commissioner's Office and spent a lot of time on the internet. Oh, and we read the actual legislation too.
We've discovered there's a huge amount of misinformation out there, much of it honest misunderstanding, but quite a lot of it clearly caused by companies looking to spin the act to create business for themselves. We'll try to bust some myths and clear up some misunderstandings.
We don't claim to know everything about GDPR, this site just contains what we've learnt to date. We hope that those with knowledge will add to what's here.
Evolving over time
This site will evolve over time, both prior to enforcement of the act starting in May 2018 and after that time when the first court cases start to resolve some of the many grey areas of the regulation into case law.

We're Redox Software, a software development company based in Oxfordshire, UK. Our journey down the GDPR rabbit hole started a few months back. As soon as we read the regulation we realised that as a software company the General Data Protection Regulation was going to be a big deal for both us and our clients, so we set out to learn everything we could. We needed to distil that learning into information for our clients, so we figured we'd put it all onto a website and then hopefully others would find it useful too.
Important: This site describes our current understanding of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
