GDPR is coming…


Welcome to GDPR Decoded

We're glad you could join us. Here's what our site's all about:

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.

Dispelling myths

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.

A conversation

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.

Let's get started

This site is packed full of information about the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Here's a few of the many articles on this site to get you started:

Who's behind GDPR Decoded?

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).

We are not lawyers, always seek specialist GDPR advice for your organisation.
